He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. – Mark 4:39 (NIV)
Stressful situations stink. When you’re overloaded with schoolwork and then your mom asks you to help out around the house with extra chores, it can almost feel like too much. You might wonder can you really make it?
Here’s the truth: You can make it. But the good news is that it’s not all up to you to make it through. The good news is that you don’t have to carry all the stress and burdens of life on your own. Jesus came to bring you peace, and a good life. So you can rely on Jesus for help when life feels stressful.
It often helps to put your eyes on Jesus. Remind yourself of His goodness and all the things He’s done for you. Then go to Him in prayer and ask Him for wisdom to get through the stressful situation. He will show you what you need to do, and give you supernatural wisdom to get through the things that stress you out.
