Does life seem stressful to you sometimes? I know it does for me. There are times when I have way more to do than I have time in a day. Or sometimes, a relationship not going well will stress me out.
The thing is, even when things are stressful, we can choose to be at peace internally. Being at peace doesn’t mean that our circumstances are good. Rather, peace is a heart position that is independent of what’s going on around you. There might be really bad things happening in your life, but you can choose to be at peace in the midst of them.
So even if you’re in the middle of a stressful situation. Even if it feels like you can’t make it through, know that God is good. He’s there helping you, leading you, and guiding you through the midst of whatever you’re facing.
I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 (NLT)
Today’s verse shows us that there are going to be times when life isn’t necessarily easy. However, Jesus is faithful. He will see you through to the other side.
