Well Ladies, we certainly have had an eye-opening week! We’ve learned the hard truth about how our attitudes really do affect the level of stress in our lives. However, as we’ve seen this week when we make an intentional effort to fix our thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and admirable we actually do live a Stressed-Less Life! As we leave Chapter 7 with Philippians 4:8 planted in our hearts, I want to bring one of my favorite scriptures to you that I meditate on daily.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34
Lysa TerKeurst, President of Proverbs 31 Ministries recently shared with me something she has done for years that has helped her keep focused on the day at hand. Lysa said, each morning she asks, “What is my assignment for today Lord?” and that is what she would commit to focusing on for just that day. Something about that simple question has personally changed the way I approach my days so that I don’t become so overwhelmed with stress. I would like to encourage you to try approaching God in and throughout each day with this question as well.
Do you have any verses that help you stay focused on your day and help to wipe out the chaos that can so easily distract us from what God’s assignment is? If you do, write them down, identify them in your Bible, and share them with us. If you don’t, well isn’t it a great day to find some? (Hint, if this seems overwhelming, just Google it! I just googled, Bible verses about stress and Bible verses about peace. It led me to so many awesome verses!)
Leave a comment today and share with us ways you’ve found helpful to stay focused on today and any verses that you find to be helpful in your everyday life. By sharing, we can learn so much from each other and grow closer to God through the power of His Word.
