There’s so much that you need to do each day, so much that you want to do, and so much that others expect of you. You feel pulled in all directions. Pressure. Tension. Anxiety. Will it ever stop?
It won’t stop on its own, but you can break the cycle. You don’t have to remain entangled in the unending struggle to do more and have more. Life doesn’t have to be a daily crisis. You don’t have to be the prisoner of unrealistic expectations. Let Jesus help you regain control of your life.
The root of the problem is simple: You try to do too much, more than is humanly possible, and you put your mind, body, and spirit under pressure they were never meant to handle. It’s time to reassess. Determine what things mean the most to you–your primary long-term goals and responsibilities–and what other things are essential to achieve those things. Channel your energies into those things, and let go of the rest. Once you’ve done this, the pressures that once seemed unbearable will start to dissipate.
Do you want a new lease on life? You can have one, but you have to be willing to let go of the pressures that drive you now. It’s up to you.
