>Stressed Out

>Stressed out. That’s how I’ve felt this week. This underlying tension that is in my chest and in the pit of my stomach. It’s pervasive in my thinking. When I get this stressed out I begin to get stressed about things I NEVER been worried about. It’s like a cancer spreading quickly into every category of my life: personal and work. When I realize that I’ve been taken over by this emotion, I many times come to the understanding that I haven’t spent any time in prayer and I’m trying to do it all in my own strength. I start to withdrawal from people. I become incredibly irritable and I also begin to make poor choices along the way. In the midst of a schedule and a task list that is unrelenting I must…..Stop. Do whatever it takes to stop for a moment and pray not for the sake of finding “inner strength”, but to be reminded that you can’t do any of this on your own. Bottom line: Stress can be regulated by prayer.

Peace,

Nathan
