“Stress is not what happens to us. It is our respond to what happens. And response is something we can choose”
Being Caregivers and in constant demand of our time, stress is something that will come very easily into our lives; this will not only rob us from our peace, but it will lead us to take our eyes from Christ.
During stress, people tend to have negative talk to in their minds or to themselves and usually 4 personalities come up.
*The worry person is surrounded by anxiety.
*The critic person emphasizes the self-esteem.
*The victim person will fall into depression.
*The perfectionist person will endure chronic stress and burnout.
Nonetheless it is important to remember that Christ is our rock and our pennant in troubled times. If we decide to lead emotions, stress and thoughts that the enemy brings, we are not letting God take over and be glorified in the situation, no matter how stressful it is.
Psalms 73:26 “My body and my heart may grow weak, but God is the strength of my heart and all I need forever”
