How To Have a Stress-Free Day

“This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

The Lord desires you to have peace, My Friend, even on the days you have a lot to do. How does that happen? It happens by keeping two truths in mind.

The first is that He has an agenda for your day, and if you fulfill His plan for today, then He calls your day a success. His plans include the things you must do to care for yourself and those for whom you are responsible. God gives you enough time and strength to do everything that matters to Him. Everyday. No exceptions. If you believe this, then you can rest in your spirit knowing He is on your side and that stress need not be a part of this day, even when things get hectic.

The second truth that makes for a stress-free day is that God intends you to face this day with joy. He is in control, He is always by your side, and His love for you will never change. How can you do anything but have joy? Today is more about being in His presence than checking off a to-do list. When you focus on loving God in all you do, everything else falls into place.

We humans make life harder than it has to be. Life with Christ is a life walked in His peace and joy. Focus on these two truths and enjoy a stress-free day!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
