Your Burdens

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

A recent study provided what scientists called a direct link between stress and aging. It helped explain why the strains of life “can make people get sick and grow old before their time.”

Commenting on the study, a leading doctor said, “We all know that stress seems to age people.” This new study “demonstrated that there is no such thing as a separation of mind and body – the very molecules in our bodies are responsive to our psychological environment.”

A key factor was “people’s perception of how much stress they are under.” One scientist said, “the findings emphasize the importance of managing life stress.” Stress is a common problem for people of all ages and all stages of life. Christians are not immune to stress. The Bible promises that God will take away our burdens and give us peace. Yet many Christians still are plagued by stress, troubled by problems at work or home, worries about the world, their relationships, or finances.

Is there any hope? What can we do? It’s not enough just to read the Bible. We actually need to apply Biblical principles in our lives, take steps to trust in God, and not hold onto our burdens but commit them to Him.

If you feel stressed, don’t carry these burdens any longer. Cast them on the Lord, and commit your needs to Him. The Bible promises that He will sustain you and give you His peace.
