“We don’t get enough rest which can increase our levels of stress, which raises our blood pressure. And if we smoke, vape, drink alcohol or use other substances, than we’re filling God’s temple with those toxins as well. Not much of temple, is it?” — Julia Bruce
Today’s quote: “Music can also be comforting in times of stress, sorrow, or difficulty. Through these songs, we are reminded of God’s promises and love for us.” — Julia Bruce
Our emotional-self benefits from spiritual self-care with less stress, anxiety, and depression as we release our cares and concerns to the One who is in control of the universe and who has good plans for us.
As we pray, study God’s Word, and sing praise songs, our anxiety, stress, and depression levels are lowered because our focus is on Christ who is always in control of our circumstances rather than focusing on our problems and difficulties.
When we experience stress, fear, anxiety, or trouble, we can turn to God’s Word and His promises to find strength, comfort, and wisdom for the circumstances we face.
