Managing stress is a part of living a healthy lifestyle. There’s good stress and bad, but our bodies don’t really know the difference.
Yesterday and today are high stress days for me. While I got a workout and run in yesterday, today I’m choosing to focus on my soul and intentionally rest my thoughts on and in God.
I’ve got some smooth comforting matcha, words of Jesus that bring life to my being, and the birds singing songs. Truly a beautiful way to rest my soul and align my heart with God’s. It’s the only way to get through tough days.
With my stomach in knots and racing mind, I still have this peace inside me that wants to sing a song of gratefulness. I can feel a sense of relief on the other side – like it’s within grasp. But until then, I will push forward while restin in the power of truth and justice. Thankfully, I live within both – and know the Source of both.
Psalm 91 – that’s where I live. If you aren’t there – join me. It’s a place of peace and rest – even when all is chaotic.
Have a beautiful day filled with moments of impact that propel you further into your purpose.
with much love, Andrea
Let’s pray Psalm 91 together:
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.””
Psalms 91:1-16 NIV
