Extra, Extra

There are so many extra things to get done these days, extra tasks added to all the normal to-do lists of your life.

Extra things can up your stress to new levels of intensity.

When stress thrives, you suffer.

Your relationships suffer.

You miss the moments that make this life wonder-full.

So stop right now and take a breath.

May this moment be one that you take to connect with your Savior.

Get His holy perspective, be infused with His divine energy and receive all the massive amounts of grace He has for you.

Breathe in extra grace, breathe out extra stress.

Breathe in extra peace, breathe out the extra fear.

You will still have lots of things to do today.

Details will continue to demand attention.

Extra stress will still knock on the door of your heart but you will be able to answer it and kindly tell stress that your heart is already full.

Full of God’s grace and peace.

I love how the Amplified version translates 2 Peter 1:2, “May grace (God’s favor) and peace (which is perfect well-being, all necessary good, all spiritual prosperity, and freedom from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts) be multiplied to you in [the full, personal, precise, and correct] knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.”

Amen.
