Stress can consume our lives. It can make us forget about the joy that lies throughout our day. Even the biggest blessings can get overlooked, because stress consumes our thoughts, actions, and outlook on life. The Bible says not to be stressed or anxious about anything, but to pray and give thanksgiving to God. We are all too blessed to be stressed!
Have you ever been in a situation where you didn’t even realize something great happening in your life, because you were too busy stressing? Suppose it’s the night before your big test, but you were too busy fighting with your boyfriend or girlfriend to study. When you walk into class the next day, you’re too worked up to even realize that the test was postponed. You overlook the blessing of the test being cancelled and continue dwelling on the fight. Small blessings can have a huge impact, even though they might seem minimal. Every time something like this happens it’s God’s way of saying, “I’ve got your back.”
Challenge yourself to thank God more for the blessings he has put in your life rather than stress out about anything. There’s nothing on this earth that can override God’s blessings. He is SO good!
