Blind Bartimaeus sat by the roadside begging. And when he begun to cry out "Jesus, son of David have mercy on me!" many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more. (Mark 10:46-47)

Refuse to accept an unacceptable situation. Bartimaeus was blind and he was a beggar and yet the people around him who were not blind or begging wanted him to accept his fate, stop calling on Jesus and die a blind beggar. But he refused to listen them and you should ignore those who want you to continue suffering in your stressful situaiton without seeking a solution.

Even if you can't see a way out of your predicament (like blind Bartimaes) or your problems have conspired to shut you up, refuse to accept the untenable situation. Cry out to Jesus and continue crying out to Him until your situation changes for the better.

Even if the doctors can't help you (as they couldn't help blind Bartimaeus) or the financial institutions can't help you (as they couldn't help begging Bartimaeus), do not give up on your stressful situation. Çry out to Jesus for He came that we may have life and have it to the full.

So, if our stressful situations are squeezing the abundance out of our lives, let us reject them and Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)
