Thought For an abundant day

A Strategy To Defeat Stress

The tendency is to fight stress with activity, to beat it into submission. But this only feeds the beast. Try rest, especially resting in God. Set aside quiet time. Tell God what is not going well in your life, and listen with your heart to what He has to say.

“Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? The LORD is the everlasting God; he created all the world. He never grows tired or weary.”

Isaiah 40:28 (GNT)

And God’s altar may be found anywhere and everywhere, and especially in my heart.

Replace My “If” With “You Can”

Replace My “If” With “You Can”

Today I will replace my feeble “If You can” with a confident “according to Thy will,” emboldened by the belief that it is not how one prays but the One who hears the prayer that is the power behind prayer. Mark 9:22-23But if you can do anything, take pity on us...
