There is something all of us have experienced called "stress". Stress is not always a bad thing. Whenever you feel threatened emotionally, physically, spiritually or mentally, something wonderful happens in your body. It is called a temporary “stress response”. The “stress response” causes our blood pressure to go up, our pulse to quicken, adrenalin to shoot into our body and along with many other helpful physiological effects! These temporary “stress responses” are a God-given blessing to give you that extra burst of energy you need to protect yourself in an emergency.
But there another side of stress called “chronic stress” which is when your body is under so much stress for so long that the “stress responses” never shut down! Hundreds and hundreds of medical studies show that chronic stress is dangerous to your physical health.
This Sunday, as we continue our TRANSFORMATION campaign, we will look at how the Bible says we can overcome stress. Our teacher will be King David, who certainly knew something about stress as he faced Goliath and thousands and thousands of other enemies. His Spirit-inspired writings will tell us how his secret for dealing with stress and how we can shut down the devastating effects of “chronic stress”!! Come and join us!!
God bless and can’t wait to see you Sunday at 10:00am!!
