How to Overcome Stress and Anxiety – Scriptures That Will Uplift You.

Psalm 94:19 New International Version (NIV)

19 When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your assignment deadlines are fast approaching, parental duties are up to your neck and work related matters just seem to be piling up and you find yourself saying ‘Eek! I feel stressed!’? But have you ever really paused for a moment and asked yourself, what is stress really, and how does it affect us?

I’m about to say something that may seem controversial at first, but will make sense in a little while. Stress isn’t always necessarily a bad thing, as a matter of fact, it sometimes is a necessary evil.

“Stress is primarily a physical response. When stressed, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action.” Stress.org

Sometimes in our lives we undergo stress due to foreseeable reasons and at other times due to unforeseeable reasons. Isn’t it a good thing that God has set up natural defences that automatically prepare your body for action,in order to combat whatever is to come. Thank God for these natural defences. There is also another remedy to aid that stress.

John 14:27 New International Version (NIV)

27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Peace is a wonderful thing. Notice how it says, “I do not give it as the world does.” We have to remember that worldly peace is only temporary, but God’s peace is forever.

I once read that: God’s best for you is closely linked with this daily meeting with Him. The barometer of one’s Christian life is the Quiet Time. Do you have a Quiet Time, or have you let it slip? Be the man of God who takes time to be holy, speaks oft with his Lord, abides in Him only, and feeds on His Word. God grant that this may be true of you. You cannot tell me you have surrendered to God, that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life, or that you know the fullness of the Holy Spirit unless you have your manna in the morning. May your prayer be: Help me, O Lord, Thy Word to read,/Upon the living Bread to feed,/Seeking Thy Spirit’s quickening lead/That I may please Thee in all things.” Stephen F. Olford

In the Book of proverbs we learn the importance of Committing our ways unto the LORD. I am not saying that you won’t get stressed, but what I am saying is, you will cope better and not allow the stress to consume you.

Philippians 4:6 tells us that we don’t have to be anxious when we can freely talk with God about our needs. We can cry out to Him for help and He will hear us.

The problem is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    We tested coffee makers for the water temperature during the brew cycle and the brewing time as well as the temperature of the coffee at the end of brewing and during the keep warm cycle. In addition, we evaluated each brewer’s ease of use, including how easy it was to read and use the controls, access the water tank and brew basket, read the markings on the tank and carafe, whether or not it had automatic keep warm and shut off cycles, and the ease of cleaning the carafe.

    I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently trying to develop my wholesale side of company. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the best way to do this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a dependable web site where I can get CBD Shops Business Mailing List I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
