I am not so good at certain types of stress management. When a friend’s hard drive broken down on me over the weekend, it was pretty crazy. My mind instantly (instantly) leapt into overdrive stress, not even trying to logically think through things.
I am reminded of the Peace that passes Understanding specifically because it was very clear to me how I did not seek it. I let the cares of the world was right into me.
The Lord’s peace isn’t a magical dweomer that we can simply put into place around us, like something out of a computer game :)
We have to consciously seek it, going through our cares and laying them before God by knowing that He is greater by far, and able to comfort us.
In the end, this has been a humbling (learning) experience for me.
Goodwill and Salutations to you all,
