We all feel the pressure. We all understand stress and distress.
Perhaps yours is in the financial realm. Maybe you have lost your job or you have an unexpected expense. Maybe yours is more relational in nature. Your marriage isn’t solid or your children are not acting right. Maybe you are trying to juggle all of life’s demands and balance things but you keep dropping the ball.
I know what it’s like to be at your wits end. The stress, the aggravation, the sleepless nights, the headaches and backaches…you feel like you are going to explode. It seems that more and more people these days are in the vice grip and it is getting tighter and tighter by the minute. Sometimes the pressure is so overwhelming that you don’t think you can stand another second.
But listen…you can! The pressure is there to mold you and shape you into the person God has for you to be. The pathway of pressure is also the gateway to a deeper walk with God.
Trust Him, lean into Him, Believe! Wait and watch God work in your life and watch the pressure be used to bring glory to God and ultimately good to you.
Hang in there Soon the vice grip will be released.
