Stress To Impress | Part 2

Wrong Side Of The Wrong Ladder
Message Summary

Stress To Impress
We all have varying degrees of stress that causes our life to be in tension. Stress a reaction to particular life events or patterns and can cause people significant problems. Difficulties that were previously manageable might become much more challenging to cope with. This can produce common signs and symptoms which have internal and external impact.

We would all like to manage and reduce stress in our lives. To do that, not only must we avoid what is unhealthy, but find a rhythm in God that redistributes those pressures. Most of us, keep busy to impress others, or have ways of living that though are enforced upon us we can still do something about. Others avoid life altogether, either way, we have a burden carrying God that wants us to cope with the demands and pressures of life.

This series acknowledges that we all at times struggle to cope and can feel overwhelmed by life. We aim for a biblical understanding and application to help us reduce stress and secondly, learning how to overcome it by lifting it to Jesus.

  3. Stress can be defined as the degree to which you

    feel overwhelmed or unable to cope as a result of pressures that are unmanageable. Mental Health Foundation

  5. That is why I tell you not to worry about

    everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Matthew 6:25–31 (NLT)
  6. “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies

    of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? Matthew 6:25–31 (NLT)
  7. “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we

    eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of Gode above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:25–31 (NLT)
  8. casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for

    you. 1 Peter 5:7 (ESV)
  9. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another,

    for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:5–7 (ESV)
