Get an alarm and a Bible and let God's Word relieve your stress...
Five years ago, a major disappointment left me pressured and stressed. I slid into a pit of discouragement.
Each day I woke up sad, went to bed sad, and covered up my sadness during the day so I could complete my daily tasks.
I let sorrow overshadow my blessings.
Instead of spending more time in God's Word, I started spending less. I needed God desperately, but I was seeking Him less.
So I started Bible Love Notes.
Slowly, as I studied and wrote devotions (mostly to myself), I climbed out of that pit of despair.
"As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands." Psalm 119:143
This year, life knocked me down again, but I'm determined not to slide back into that pit again.
This time I'm setting my alarm every hour, reading Bible verses that inspire perseverance and trust, and letting God's Word give me joy.
Even if you're not in the midst of a trial, you might be encouraged by an alarm and a Bible.
