    Things get quite stressful at times. It's all a part of life, but the important thing is how you handle that stress. I've had many downs, but when I get stressed I think of how bad it could be. God will only put on you what you can handle. We are built to be able to handle anything and everything. God loves you, but often times we get so caught up in the moment that we forget that. In the long run things will get better.

    I don't know if this story has already been shared here yet but thought I'd share: A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything." It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!
