To manage any stressful situation effectively, you have to habitually humble yourself under the mighty hand of God so that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5: 6-7)

Understand that God cares for you and you do not have to develop backaches from carrying burdens that are too heavy for you or develop headaches from trying to figure out how you are going to carry all your burdens. All you have to do is to Cast your burdens on the Lord and He shall sustain you. (Psalm 55: 22)

Therefore, cast all the problems arising out of your stressful situation to the Lord in prayer. Cast all the people who are stressing you to the Lord so that He can deal with them. Cast your entire stressful situation and all its attendant frustrations and uncertainties to the Lord in prayer and promise yourself that once you have let go of your burdens you will never pick them up again.

Let Him carry them for you since you cannot move forward if you are always agonizing over the same anxieties or aggravated by the same old problems. You have to lay them down once and for all.

Adapted from Managing Stress with the Word of God by Dr. Miriam Kinai. (C) 2006
