Have you even felt like you had more on you than you could ever get done? Have you felt incapable of meeting all the demands life was placing on you? Your obligations outnumber your hours. You income won’t cover your expenses. Everyone is calling you and you have nothing more to give. When you are stressed out you need to look to the best example of dealing with the pressures life places on you. Look to Jesus. He carried the weight of the sins of the whole world on his shoulders. No one has ever been pursued like He was. People needed miracles, sought out His teaching, and called for Him every hour of the day. Yet, Jesus handled stress the best. (1 John 2:2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.) I read how Jesus set us an example to follow to have full stress relief. It began with His identification, Jesus knew who he was. His motivation, Jesus knew what he was living for. His vocation, Jesus understood his calling, His concentration, Jesus always knew what mattered most. His meditation, Jesus listened only to God. His collaboration, Jesus always had a support group. His recreation, Jesus took time to recharge. Each of us need to look at the example Jesus laid out for us to follow to relieve stress in our lives. Our day will go so much better, our load will seem so much lighter, and our accomplishments will be so much greater, when we un-stress ourselves. Pastor Don
