Stress Relief?

Sea Boat Waves

Is there something or someone that makes you feel more comfortable?  When you’re feeling stressed out is there a place you run to (either real, or in your mind) that seems to help?  I took a class once where the teacher wanted us to imagine our “beautiful place” and go there in our minds whenever things were tough.  I guess I wouldn’t throw the whole concept out now that I’m a Christian, I just prefer to prayerfully sit and talk to Jesus about what’s going on.  After I’ve been at His feet, I always have a sense of what direction He would have me take in life.  When I used to leave my “beautiful place”, I would always find the situation I was avoiding was waiting for me and was often even worse when I got back.  What’s more, I was no more ready to deal with it.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”  Philippians 4:6

In Christ,
