10 things to remember when dealing with Stress

Are you tired and anxious?

Are you dealing with stress and fear?

Or life is troubling you?

Then I have some words of comfort for you and a few tips to make it through this period. I hope this small compilation is useful for someone. Take one or all of the verses, according to your need.

You’re not called to worry, you’re called to stand aside and see the Lord fight for you. Go to Him in Prayer and believe that He has done that which He says He will do, which is keep you in perfect peace. 

  1. When things come at you from different angles, remember that Jesus calmed the raging storm.

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

Mark 4:19

still-water

  1. If you don’t see where your future is headed, remember that your faith is in the One who holds tomorrow

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Isaiah 46:10

  1. Things may be tough, but your God is tougher

 Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isaiah 44:6

  1. Confess positive confessions

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

  1. Take time to care for yourself

Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.

3  John 1:2

  1. Stay in tune with the Father

 You’re blessed when you stay on course,
    walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
    doing your best to find him.
That’s right—you don’t go off on your own;
    you walk straight along the road he set.

Beginning of Psalm 119 (according to the Message Bible)

  1. Listen to your heart. If you trust in God, give some more thought to the deep longings of your heart. Very often, they’re put there by God. Let God’s peace guard your heart. 

 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7

  1. Walk in confidence

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

Sassy

  1. Even if things don’t go according to your plan, remember that God holds the future and the past.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

  1. You have a glorious future, a heavenly heritage.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

1 Peter 1:3-6

Peace and love!

Hey, my name is Alheri and I'm obsessed with Jesus. This blog is me keeping my promise to Him for answering a prayer. Purple is my favorite color and my favorite scripture is Jeremiah 32:27 which says "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?"

    GOD HEAR US
    Reading words like these spring me up like the propeller in space shuttle. My mind begins to wander. Why are so many things not working for me? Are other people going through the disappointments i face?

    Then I answer myself again. Huh, do you recall the young man that set himself ablaze in Tunisia, setting up the Arab spring? What of Nigeria’s Dr Orji, the man that safely parked his Nissan Jeep with driver on Third Mainland bridge in a bright morning sun in the pretext of making a phone call only to hurriedly overcome the barricade and plunged head on into the raging lagoon? Two sad scenes that ended in suicide! They both are said to be expressing their frustration at life. But What happened?
    I understand they were discontent with life. They could not hold back any longer.

    What could have caused this? In Tunisia the suicide of that young man led to a revolution.. the Arab spring.. leading to the toppling of the tight-sitting president of over 20 years. In contrast, in nigeria, Dr Orji has not received a single one-man demonstration against the authority or any organization, of whatever is thought to be the reason for his suicide mission. Only the social media commentators who as usual want to postulate the best he could have done.

    So whenever i have a single thought of the way things are resulting to whenever i invest in thought, in kind or in material and lose everything, I just sometimes burst into laughter, praise and worship.

    Why? Ah, simple answer! I live in a country where a qualified, registered Medical Doctor could become so frustrated he drives in his own jeep which is so highly priced and coveted, parks it and subdues the bridge barriers and in the brazen eyes of his own driver and passers-by, dives in an Olympic -swimmer manner, head-on onto the dark, dirty, deep waters of the Lagos lagoon and all we hear is 24 hours later, the authorities are still looking for his corpse or remains! Er? No localized demonstrations, no missing of a single meal by any country man, woman, boy or girl reported anywhere in the Nigeria as an aftermath.

    So why will i worry so much that all my material investments have all failed?
    I know it hurts to hear that Nigeria is in recession. That money up to Forty Nine Million Nigeria Naira could be found UNACCOMPANIED at the airport with no claimant. That over Nine Million American Dollars could be stashed away in a ghetto room in Kaduna, and after being found and made public, a hitherto wellrespected Nigerian could own up and even ask the Authorities to return the idle Millions of Dollars back to him, that he just kept it, being gift items to him by WELL WISHERS!
    Maybe these incidents and many more such cases of money in some hands and rooms may have compelled young Dr Orji to commit suicide since he may have been in some financial mess, or something close.

    Your ”ten things” article remains a source of solace to me. Plenty of emotional stress has gone simply reading the stuff. Thank you, my daughter, Alheri.

    • Thank you for reading it Daddy. I keep telling you to not worry yourself, God is in control. There’s no one like God, you have to always remember that He loves you and He has your best interest at heart. He will never leave you and He will never forsake you. There’s no need to worry, He will lead you to a glorious end filled with His goodness and love. I’m praying for and with you. All my love, as always.

  2. Wonderful Alheri! Right now the bookmark I am using has the verse, “The Lord Himself will fight for you, Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14 on it. It has been a wonderful reminder of a truth my head knows but my heart sometimes needs to be reminded of.

    • Yes! That’s definitely one of my favorite verses in the bible. The Lord shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace. I hope you feel better GrandMa!
