"Therefore this is what the LORD says, 'If you repent, I will restore you.'" Jeremiah 15:19
Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first... Revelation 2:5
...I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead... Philippians 3:13
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Week 3: Stress/Burden-relief
In this series we are looking at how, already having a relationship with Jesus Christ, we need to live our lives.
This week we are observing Scripture surrounding Jesus, relating to how we can be stress and burden -free.
:) God bless ya!
You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough." I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. Galatians 5:7-10
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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
Where have you been stressing out the most?
Why have you been carrying the weight of that stress by yourself?
In the video above, we talked about how there are 3 things I see that Christ implements in hid daily life: Trusting God, Spending valuable (personal) time with God, and loving God and people. Step into Christs' ways (take His yoke), pray for help and watch how the stress washes away! Note: Don't give up. Keep going for it and believing :)
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
2 Corinthians 10:3-4
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Base everything below on this truth: We are fighting with God. We are putting on His Armor. Fight, using the steps below, knowing this truth.
1) Keep truth tight w/ you
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist... Eph. 6:14
2) Protect your heart with Christ through deeds of righteousness
...with the breastplate of righteousness in place... Eph. 6:14
3) With readiness and the message of Jesus Christ (Be ready in Christ!)
...with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace... Eph. 6:15
4) With your faith in God protecting you from all the lies of the evil one.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Eph. 6:16
5) Know how to be saved. If you are saved, remember: you are saved.
...Take the helmet of salvation... Eph. 6:17
6) Read, know and meditate on the Bible, the Word of God.
"Take... the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Eph. 6:17
...And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Eph. 6:18
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
"19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should." Ephesians 6:19-20
In Christ Jesus we have freedom. Through the Son of God's Life we have freedom. We are free people when we believe Jesus Christ died for us and make Him our LORD and Savior.
Praise God :)
