Life can get out of hand and seem a little crazy sometimes. We struggle to balance it all – work, family, fun, health, finances, and the list goes on. We can’t eliminate all stress, but we can manage our stress better.
Jesus was 30 before His ministry began. Jesus died at 33 ½. It was an intense 3 ½ years. In the Bible we never see Jesus uptight, freaking out, or hurried. Jesus was always available and He accomplished everything He was created to do. Jesus’ life transformed history.
We have a lot we can learn from Jesus. Jesus invites us to get to know Him better.
Jesus says: “Come to me, all you who are weary and overburdened, and I will give you REST. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)
This Week: Get to know Jesus. Pick a Gospel (Matthew, Mark, Luke or John). Spend some time reading about who Jesus was. Take about 15 minutes a day reading God’s Word which will show you who Jesus was and how He managed His life and stress.
