Chill a little

Overwhelmed? Feel a little like the t-shirt design I saw -


My daughter who is an accountant and in the middle of tax season was feeling some of that this morning and called. I told her what I will tell you now.

Step back, Take a breath and Chill for a minute. Put on some good music, and spend some time in prayer.

No it won't make everything instantly ok and right, but it will give you some perspective. It won't make what is stressing you go away, but it will enable you to handle it better.

This advice is to ones who know Jesus Christ as their Saviour. He helps us handle the problems of life. He is our rock - the joy of the Lord is our strength. 

Joy isn't giddy happiness, it is deeper, a bedrock, even in the midst of stress, sadness or just everyday life.

But laughter is also good for us and helps us deal with stress. Take a moment and laugh. It helps. It has been proven medically but God told us long before drs did -  A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22.

If you are not saved, you don't have the slightest idea of what I am talking about...... BUT ...... YOU CAN! 

Jesus wants to be your Saviour - He loves you. He will be your strength in whatever you are facing and give you peace that will pass understanding if you will let Him.

Jesus gave Himself and died on the cross to purchase your salvation. He paid for all the sin you have ever committed or ever will. He took your punishment ( and mine). He died, shedding His precious blood to wash away our sin, and then He was buried - but praise God, He got up bodily alive forever more the 3rd day with victory for everyone of us who will repent of our sin and trust HIM alone for our salvation.

To those of us who have done that - Jesus is our Strength. Sometimes we forget to tap into the strength He offers, but He is there for us, if we will turn to Him.

Lean on Him today and draw from the strength and joy He offers.

Here are some videos from You tube that will help you take a minute to rejoice and maybe even laugh. Enjoy :

Jesus is the Blessed Hope to the Christian and we can look forward to His coming again. I enjoyed this song this morning by the Happy Goodmans - He's Coming Again -


Something to make you laugh ( I had a hard time choosing - go to youtube and look up Aaron Wilburn and listen to some of his other stuff also - most of it is good for a clean laugh.)


Hope you took a minute to chill and that you will continue to spend time with the Lord today and let Him be your strength.
