To successfully manage any stressful situation, you have to let Jesus into your heart and into your life so that He can calm your inner stormy emotions and show you how to manage your outer stormy stressful situation. 

Jesus has taken the first step. He came to earth, was crucified for our sins and now He says, Look, I stand at the door and knock. If any person hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to them.” (Revelation 3:20)

He knocks and waits for you to invite Him in. You have to admit to yourself that you need divine help and then make the conscious choice of opening up your heart and life to Him. 

So let Jesus in right now for He wants to help you sort out your life and your stressful situation.

Opening the door of your heart to Jesus is very simple. All you have to do is to turn away from your sins and then You confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one makes the confession for salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)

After opening your heart to Jesus, open up your stressful life to Him. Show Him the wounds that you hide from people. Let Him see the leg that was amputated by diabetes, the eye that was blinded by the freak accident, the mastectomy scar and the kidneys that have failed due to high blood pressure.

Show Him the limitations in your living arrangements imposed on you by financial setbacks, the vital medications you cannot afford, the meals you forego and the clothes peeling off your back. Let Him see the full extent of your depravity so that He can restore you to wholeness. 

Do not fear to bare it all for Him for He looks with love and listens with compassion. Share it all with Him for He loves you just as you are, right where you are. Let Him be the Friend who will walk with you through it all for He is the only one who can see it all and solve it all.
