Sometimes I do.
One of my favorite scriptures with regard to this is in Philippians 4:4-7. I'm especially partial to the way it reads in The Message paraphrase:
4-5 Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you're on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
6-7 Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
I benefit greatly from renewing my mind by thinking on this scripture when I'm tempted to worry and stress. I've recently found another thing that helps - keeping a "Worry Box". I got the idea from one of the characters in the book series The Sister Circle. The idea is that whenever you have one of those life issues that's really bothering you, as you're giving it over to God you write it down briefly on a piece of paper and put it into your "worry box".
For some reason, this act of writing it down and placing it in the box is helpful for me, somehow seeing that I'm giving it to God creates more of a completed feeling inside. Perhaps I'm just one of those people who finds visuals helpful.
I have a friend Paula who gave me a beautiful butterfly jeweled box that I keep my "worries" in on my dresser. It's actually been kind of exciting lately as God's given me insights into things that are motivating and causing problems for some of the people in my life, to be able to pray for them and place my concerns for them into the box as well.
What about you, are there some ways God's been helping you deal with your life stresses lately?
