Feeling Stressed?

This morning I was reminded of those days in our life when we are struggling to find peace. An individual was sharing her concerns over an important matter in their family. Now in this situation, she and her husband had done everything possible to achieve the desired outcome. Yet, she was still experiencing trouble sleeping, having negative thoughts, and a loss of daily joy. Have you ever had one of those days? I know I have on many occasions struggled to find joy or peace.  So how do we move forward when the darkness of despair covers us like a blanket?

 As believers in Christ, we know prayer is one of the greatest blessings to every Christian. The Lord tells us repeatedly to come to Him with our troubles. He even promises to answer our prayer.

Psalm 50:15 “And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”

Psalm 55:16 “As for me, I will call upon God: and the Lord shall save me.”

There are many places in Scripture that God tells us to come to Him and He will hear our cries. But the truth of the matter (if we are honest) is that when we are struggling, we don’t feel like praying. Everything within us just wants to cry and worry. So how do we find relief during these moments? Here are a few tips that may help. 


We Are Overcomers In Christ

Nothing Can Separate Us From the Love of God.  
It seems that every day the devil wants to remind us of our shortcomings. The adversary finds no shortage of words as he reminds us of our sin. For many believers, this tactic places just enough weight on their shoulders to keep them out of the race God sets before each adopted child. The guilt of our unworthiness bogs us down and eventually forces us to be sidelined Christians.


Just Call My Name
