Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on Earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever. Psalm 73:25-26 NLT
If you have read the Book of Psalms, then it is evident that David had undying love and adoration for God. David’s songs convey that God is always here for us in spite of our circumstances. Although our physical bodies will decline, even unto the point of death, our hearts can remain strong when we abide with God.
Have you recognized and embraced the various roles of our heavenly Father? God is our Light, our Salvation, our Strength, our Provider, our Healer, our Protector, our Comforter, and much more. Who else can we trust with our very lives?
It is a personal decision to include God in your life. Establishing a relationship with our Heavenly Father places us in a win-win situation. We are able to maintain a “No Worries” mindset with God on our side.
Stress is defined as feeling that our circumstances are beyond our control. Most of us can attest that when we face obstacles, we will either fall or rise above. It is human nature to perceive certain situations as daunting. However, when we have embraced the power of God, we should only fall as far as it takes for our knees to touch the floor.
When we place our trust in God we can have a stress-free life!
“Turn it over to Jesus, turn it over to Jesus, and you can smile for the rest of your days”
