God Lifts the Pressure

The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.

Psalm 29:11, nkjv

Do you feel overwhelmed and smothered by pressure? Are you desperate for “breathing room”? Do you try to escape the stress through

an extended vacation,
          therapeutic counseling,
                    alcohol,
                              drugs,
                                        entertainment, or
                                                 a romantic liaison. . .

only to find when you stop to assess your condition you are no better than you were before, because the pressure is from within?

Only God has the power to lift the pressure from within you. Your circumstances may remain the same, but He has the power to give you breathing room. He can give your spirit peace and rest, even as He gives your life a new dimension. Just ask Him.
