Stress Buster Video

You may be trying to press through your mess.   You may feel oppressed by your job or depressed with your finances or relationships.  You may feel like you’re making no progress.  Before you have a breakdown, try to break away from your routine.   Stop your busy world and stressful thoughts  for a few minutes.  You can’t fix everything and everyone.  God is in charge.   You will remember that when you take time to enjoy the outdoors.  Let nature nurture and soothe your soul.

There is someplace near you i.e. a lake, a park, the ocean, a river or even your own backyard.   Get outside.   Exhale.  Lay your burdens down.  Gain a new perspective to your old problems.    Watch my short video  and remember to share it with your family, friends and co-workers.

Get Up!

So often we allow procrastination, fear, the blame game and pity parties keep us down and out.  Every day is a precious new gift to get up and get it right.  Procrastination is a thief.   Depression is a set up to make you give up.

I love the lyrics of Mary Mary’s song “Get Up”  Here are the lyrics…

Layin’ low
Rest n’ pause
Sleeping long
Slow motion
Gonna do, Shoulda, coulda
Woulda done, Excuses

What are you afraid of?
Don’t you know
What you’re made of?
One of God’s greatest creations
Take this invitation now

Get up
‘Cause you can’t stop
Get up
Got a lot to do
24 hours
Almost gone
Get up
Don’t sit there
Get up
If you wanna get there
Clocks don’t stop and time won’t wait

He said
She said
They said
What do you say?
It’s your dreams
Your choice
Your time
Your life
So don’t you
Don’t you miss it

What are you afraid of?
Don’t you know
What you’re made of?
One of God’s greatest creations
Take this invitation now

Get up
‘Cause you can’t stop
Get up
Got a lot to do
24 hours
Almost gone
Get up
Don’t sit there
Get up
If you wanna get there
Clocks don’t stop and time won’t wait

Welcome to the rest
Of your life
From now on, just try
To live more, want more
Work a little harder
Dance more, laugh more
Be a little smarter
Hug a little longer
Love a little stronger
You’ve been down
But now it’s time to

Get up
‘Cause you can’t stop
Get up
Got a lot to do
24 hours
Almost gone
Get up
Don’t sit there
Get up
If you wanna get there
Clocks don’t stop and
Time won’t wait (2x)

One more time, say
Get up

Do you trust God?

As you ponder and worry about your circumstances, be encouraged today to TRUST the Lord.

If your heart and trust have been broken by others, your ability to trust may be difficult to develop.

If you can not trust yourself because of your past wrong choices, promises you broke, your lack of self-control, false starts or guilt, you may not feel worthy of God delivering you from your dilemmas.

All good relationships (personal and business) are stronger when there is trust.   People don’t usually trust someone unless they know them well.  It is difficult to really trust God if you really don’t know Him well.  If you don’t know His promises for your life then you will have little trust in Him to see you through any storms and valleys.  Who know well…you trust well.

To strengthen your relationship with God, it is critical you learn to know Him, study His word, His promises and trust His word. I know can be challenging to be still and trust God when you overwhelmed with stress. As you learn to TRUST God’s power, protection, provision and peace in your life, you will begin to ACT on His word because you TRUST His promises. As you grow nearer to the Lord, you will receive His remedy and response to your prayers.  No God…No peace. Know God…Know peace.

Let go of the worry, stress, guilt, shame and bad habits. If you trust your eyes, you won’t have trust in your infinite possibilities. Move forward step by step… by faith and not by sight.

“Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace–because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock.” (Isaiah 26:3-4)

According to the Revised Standard Version Bible the word “Trust” is mentioned 147 times.

Old Testament – 134 times 
New Testament – 13 times

It is taught mostly in the book of Psalms (44 times).

“The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” (Psalm 9:9-10)
