Stress free days

I’m not sure about all of you out there but I can get so stressed out over different times and over different things that I feel as though my chest will explode. This is definitely the work of the devil and can cause us to backslide in our relationship with God. Luke 12:25-26 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Stressed, worry, doubt, fear, and anxiety are bad words in my book. Our God is enormous and can more than handle our petty problems that seem overwhelming to us. 1Peter5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. I was at the airport yesterday and it was a full house. I couldn’t find the right road leading to the parking garage and the traffic wasn’t great. If you ask any of my friends they will tell you that I drive like a little old lady. I drive like this because I’m worried that other drivers that are speeding will run into me. Once I was able to park I headed over to the terminal and had a sigh of relieve believing that my trek was finished. I looked for my friends terminal and couldn’t find it, only to realize that I was on the wrong side of the airport! Aaaaaaahhhhh! I ran through the airport and the huge parking garage and into the other side of the airport only to realize that the flight had been delayed a half an hour. By this time I was so stressed out that I reached for my phone instead of God. I called a couple of friends but no one picked up. I immediately started praying casting out all my worries and fears on God and he graciously removed that from me. Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. “
