Dear Beautiful You,

Maybe I'm only writing this for myself. Or maybe I can help someone out there too with this article.

However, I'm writing this, because I am SO DONE with the feeling of stress. I'm frustrated with constantly, for years already, fighting against the feeling that however hard I fight, I will never be perfect enough for this world. Or maybe for myself.

So here I am writing about my decision to change this for good. This can't be a joke, because I start to realize that I can't fully rely on God when I keep stressing about every little thing that comes my way. But, how do I stop this? Let's find out!

If you quit, you'll never win! So, keep on fighting against stress! But fight with the right weapons: fight with faith, love and peace!

Weapon 1. Fight with FAITH!

Before I'll tell you what you can change in your life, let me be totally honest with you! However hard you will try to fight with all the strength you have to beat your stress: it's not gonna work!
I don't want to discourage you, so don't get me wrong: but there's something with this area that makes it too hard for us to do this alone. No, you don't need 100 friends to overcome this: you only need faith! Faith in Jesus, faith in your recovery, faith in better days, faith when all will go wrong again and faith in the possibilities you haven't tried yet.

So, before I will give you tips, let's pray together!

I will pray for you and me. Feel free to pray for both of us and all the other readers too.

Dear God, Thank You for all of Your patience with us. Thank You for never giving up on us! But most of all: thank You for letting Your Only Son Jesus die for us on the cross and that whoever believes and who believes He rose up from the dead again after three days, will be saved. Lord, fill the beautiful person reading this with your Holy Spirit for the strength to overcome in this area. Don't let them get discouraged so easily as I do sometimes. Let us keep on fighting the good fight. Let our weapons be love, faith, joy and love! Help us, Lord! Bless us! Encourage us! Let us build our relationship with You! In Jesus Name' Amen!

Weapon 2. Fight with LOVE!

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJB)

Let's fight with love against fear. You can do that by serving others. When you start to feel afraid you can change your focus by stop worrying and start to serve whoever you meet. Go help your mum with the dishes, help your neighbour in the garden or whatever opportunity you find to help someone else or to love on someone. Than you change the game and you show the love of Christ Himself!

Weapon 3. Fight with PEACE!

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14 (NIV)
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. Ecclastiastes 3:8 (KJB)

Another weapon that helps to fight against fear is the weapon of peace! Put on your worship music to fill your mind with peacefull thoughts. Praising God is an awesome way to show Him you choose to trust Him no matter what you're circimstances are in life at this very moment.
