Do You Need Stress Relief ? Part 1

Do you need STRESS RELIEF?

Are you stressed? Is there something weighing on your mind? Is there some inner conflict? Is there something happening in your life and you don’t know how things will work out? You are not alone! At some point in time everyone experiences a certain degree of stress. Feelings actually lets you know that you are still here! A small amount of stress is actually healthy. It keeps you on your toes and motivates you to shift. Do you need stress relief?

Life today can be quite complex at times. There are many pressures on varying diverse levels, more so at times for some. You can actually worry yourself sick. To name a few stress affects your happiness, brings on acne, hair loss, weight gain, weight loss, high blood pressure, panic attacks, anxiety, impacts your sex drive as well as hampers your infertility.

If you are experiencing a significant amount of stress don’t wait until you are completely over whelmed to find some relief. Conflict and stress are a normal part of life. If your patience is getting close to nil know; you are reaching your limit. Don’t wait until you explode and get really angry to express yourself. This will only further complicate the situation. While angry and out of control you say and do things that can be destructive. Begin to shift.

Stress is defined as; “Forces from the outside world impinging on the individual. Stress is a normal part of life that can help us learn and grow. Conversely, stress can cause us significant problems.

Stress releases powerful neurochemicals and hormones that prepare us for action (to fight or flee). If we don’t take action, the stress response can lead to health problems. Prolonged, uninterrupted, unexpected, and unmanageable stresses are the most damaging types of stress.” medicine net.com

When you are stressed it becomes difficult to respond properly. Many often become verbally or emotionally abusive. Sometimes they respond physically in an inappropriate manner. This is because they lack proper coping skills. When stressed you can often become tense. It may be harder to concentrate. You may even get a headache or your heart begins to race. This is a clear indication that YOU NEED to shift. Here is something that will help you. Imagine a cup of ice cubes being slowly yet gently poured over your head. Allow yourself to feel the coolness of the ice gently melting over you. Begin to Allow your anger to subside. Please! STOP! & Think before you respond!

S STOP!

T THINK!

R REFOCUS!

E ENERGIZE

S STAY

S SAFE!

“BE STILL & KNOW!”

GIVE GOD HIS place in your life! Instead of staying tethered to your pain; Today spend some quality time with the LORD in HIS WORD!
“HE WILL KEEP You in PERFECT PEACE when Your mind is STAYED on HIM…”

When the pressures of life begin to get to you it is important that you get a grip on your emotions. No, I am not saying go into denial. However you feel is important. Your feelings need to be validated. Depression will result if you don’t. Depression is anger turned inside! When it gets to this point you may need professional help!

Seek out resources for anger management if you have out of control behavior. Quite often you have learned some unhealthy dynamics that need to be changed. You can break this cycle. It may be hard for you to just say how you are feeling without being so angry. Your anger is a clear indication that you are also hurting. This will often result in something or someone triggering your anger and setting you “off.” If this is the case know that you are being controlled by remote. Learn how to stay “on” track!

The “Nobody’s Perfect” Club

The “Nobody’s Perfect” Club

The longer I live the more I realize how utterly important it is to develop an intimate personal relationship with the Lord. I am told that when a teller is trained in the banking industry they are taught how to recognize the authenticity of currency. Therefore whenever a counterfeit bill is passed they are able to recognize it.

 

 

Things do not always look as they appear.

We live in a real world that is full of systems of deception. Many  things have been created to distract us from the genuine purpose of life.  As a believer our purpose is or should be  to glorify God. Without the Holy Spirit as your navigator you will get towed right along. This deception has further infiltrated His Church. It beckons those who are willing to make excuses for their shortcomings, to excuse self-gratification as a mere attribute to mankind’s imperfections. To immorally satisfy the carnal appetite to all who are willing to submit to the  well “Nobody’s Perfect Club.” It teach you although “the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” He doesn’t really know how to bless His children. Because he intends for them to stay dependent on anything and everybody until they leave this world. Although they don’t believe blessings are just material, spiritual growth and development is optional. I warn you this will only enslave you to a life dependent upon sin.

 

 

We really miss the point. You see God doesn’t force us to embrace His Word.  He allows us to choose.  Christianity is supposed to be an everyday lifestyle. Instead many often choose to justify a life were sin abounds. This gives  unlimited privileges in the “Nobody’s Perfect Club.”

 

The “Nobody’s Perfect Club” allows easy access to unlimited excuses. It has a plethora of earthly benefits. You can live any way you want, say anything you want, little or no study required. Listening to an occasional  sermon or lecture may be required to help you with attendance kudos. Listening not  really required just as long as you say amen when it gets too quiet.  Just make sure you do all the social actitivities  inside and out side of the Church you enjoy.   O by the wall just some any kind of way you are comfortable. Afterall what does it matter since no one is perfect. You may even receive a B.A. (born again) if you don’t rock the boat.  That gives you a license to indulge yourself. After all “nobody’s perfect.”

 

LORD HELP US!

One caution, you may be persecuted or covertly disfellowshipped if you decide to “study to show thyself approved unto God…” Please if you have accepted “Christ as your personal Savior” allow Him to work in your life. Allow Him to activate His Holy Spirit within your  daily life. Leet Him make ivaluable  spiritual deposits to your eternal account that yields a harvest of blessings. If you have not accepted Him “accept Him NOW.” Ask Him into your life this very moment. It will be a journey like no other. If you have grown slack in your commitment (to His principles activated in your life) recommit!

 

God created us to live a life pleasing in His sight. Life is not a movie and Church is not a scene. Although it’s full of actors, it’s serious business. God really does know.  Please bear with me. You see I have been in church all my life. But I still can’t quite grasp why many really don’t believe. God really does hear all and see all every where in this world He created. If we did it would eliminate a lot of the charades. You see “seeking first His kingdom and His righteousness” will really add all you need in this life. What do you mean? The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew really contains a wealth of knowledge. Jesus discusses a multiplicity of issues. Those same issues are prevalent today.

 

Keep in mind when you really make up your mind to live for the Lord much spiritual warfare will rise up against you.  Much of it comes from those who should know you better. It also comes from “spiritul wickedness in high places”  Don’t be alarmed but instead TRUST GOD!  You see everyday  really is  a GIFT from the LORD.  NO one can make a day but HIM.  Absolutely nothing comes our way that the LORD is not aware of.   I assure you that GOD is more than able to keep you!  FAITH is the key!  It is  very important to KNOW GOD & HIS WORD for yourself.  TRUST in the LORD with ALL your heart and lean not to  your own understanding. In ALL your ways acknowledge HIM and HE WILL make your path straight!”  Proverbs 3

 

 

Personal spiritual training is important.  This way whenever  or wherever you gather together with  the rest of His CHurch you will be better prepared.   I recommend spending  time in the Word of God daily.  Not in a religious wrote way.   But seeking to discover the infinite treasure of  the Lord’s Spiritual Wisdom.  It is the only Living Word given to man.  It is “A Lamp unto our feet and a Light unto our Path!”  Psalm 119   We  are accountable  to God for our actions.  It is important to know that He will never direct us to do anything that goes against His Word!

 

We are living in some interesting times when some of everything is going.  Nothing is not longer sacred to many.  Ask God to daily  enlighten you and open your spiritual eyes.

 

 

Taking time to develop an ongoing up close and personal relationship with the LORD is the most important thing that you can ever do! “Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth &  The Life.”  He came to earth to restore us and extinguish the enmity that satan placed between God and man.   His Holy Spirit is available 24/7 to help us. The WORD of God contains invaluable instructions. It gives marvelous examples to help us from falling prey to non-biblical  half true teachings. It even tells us  how “Jesus’ blood can cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

 

God does not have to manipulate anyone.  He allows us  the freedom to choose.  You can live your life however you want. but know that there are consequences for our choices. You can live  the way of the world or God’s way.

 

The majority in the church is you and Jesus. If you don’t stand for Jesus you will fall for anything. His WORD will equip you to know  truth from error.  His Holy Spirit will sharpen your discernment! Remember that bank currency I talked about. Don’t seek the approval of man over the approval of God.   God knows were we are coming from.  It is important to take God’s Word seriously.   He will equip you to do whatever it is that He has created you to do.  Always remember it is a “Walk of Faith”

 

Jesus stresses the importance of God’s way being the best way. Don’t allow anyone to make withdrawals from your spiritual account. (By the way nobody is perfect! )   Don’t use excuses, rather embrace self discipline.   Draw closer to the Lord because you never know what a day may bring.  But you can strive for  the perfection in the Lord.  LIVE TO PLEASE GOD!  He wants to manifest and multiply the Fruit of His Spirit within us.  He also wants us  to be aware  and daily grow in His Marvelous Grace!   He teaches us in HIS WORD! Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.  Matthew 5  God would not tell us to do something that He would not Help us to do.

 

“May He give you the desire of your heart, and make  all your plans succeed.  We will shout for joy when we re victorious and will lift our banners in the Name of our God. 

May the  Lord grant all you requests. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed  He answers him from His holy Heaven with the POWER of  His  Right Hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but WE TRUST in the NAME of the LORD our GOD…” PSALM 20

 

BLESS HIS HOLY NAME!

 

Jesus gave His Life so we could live victoriously in Him.  The power of His blood yields spiritual dividends for those who call and trust Him as Savior and Lord. O what’s a wonderful  Savior?  He can help us from the power of sin  reigning within our lives. Don’t relinquish spiritual deposits only God can provide, for membership in the  “Nobody’s Perfect Club”.
