One person can’t keep a blog filled with incredible content without feeling a little stress. And, as for everything in life, God has an answer for stress.

In the case of this blog it means content will keep coming your way. But it won’t be original. Successful posts from the past years will find their way into the queue again.

Better yet, this space will introduce you to some like-minded writers who have wisdom to share. That means this space will feature content from other Christian writers.

Today, I’m going to share words from Melinda Inman, Bible teacher and Christian fiction author.

Melinda suffers from chronic fatigue. This disease has altered her active lifestyle. In fact, she’s learned about physical suffering first hand, in a way most of us hope and pray we never will.

But she hasn’t allowed it to crush her. She’s relied on God and found an abundance of lessons at His feet.

Recently she wrote:

Stress makes us insular. In my mind, this is its most detrimental effect emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We are created for community, yet we become islands, absorbed with getting ourselves through the emotional and physical bombardment. Even when we’re with others, we pull inward and away to deal with it.

Everyone would agree that stress is a malady of pandemic proportions in American society. But there’s nothing new under the sun.

I hope you will click over to Melinda’s website and read her profound discovery about God’s answer to our stress problem.
