Jesus, our sufficient rest


Stress causes us to age faster. It causes us to breath less which gradually depletes our oxygen intake, which gradually slows down our blood flow, and in the long run brings less nutrients to our brain to be energized sufficiently for optimal operation and function.

If something is giving you stress, just let it go. It doesn’t mean that it will not be done. Let someone else who can handle it stress-free handle it. You go and handle what you can handle stress-free so that you can breath again and smile.

Work, stress-free.

Because of our build being dependent of nature, we have to work not exceedingly, but sufficiently to keep energy flowing moderately, and put every aspect of our body to use. Because whatever it is that our body has and can use, if we don’t use it we lose it.

It’s not worth the stress. The arrival of the stress itself is an indication that it’s time to let it go, to let go whatever is causing the stress.

If a job is giving you the hint that you need frequent vacations, then maybe you need to take a lifetime vacation from it so that you can breath now and slow down the rapid graying and falling of your hair.

As our Lord told us:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” (Matthew 5:38-42)

“Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” (Luke 12:24-26)

Rest in Jesus, all things are yours in God through him as the Holy Spirit deems you’re mature enough to now handle and receive.
