Growing Deep In Times of Stress
You Can Grow Deep in Times of Stress
Pandemic has impacted us all differently, but there’s one unwelcome phenomenon the virus has brought us all: stress. COVID-19 has ushered in a long, global season of stress.
Anyone who walks long with God will discover that life has seasons.
There are winter seasons when productivity feels dormant, days seem dark and life grows quiet. There are spring seasons when new hope emerges as new light shines. There are summer seasons for laughter and love and preparation for harvest. There are fall seasons to behold beauty, take in the harvest and prepare for winter.
This stressful season will pass, and new life will emerge. But, as we shelter in place and look to God’s Word for help and hope, there is no better place to turn than the psalms.
The psalms, like life, are full of twists and turns. They express, at times, raw lament. They are often full of praise. They mirror the human heart and turn our souls heavenward. There is a psalm for every season.
During the most stressful season in our memory, let God’s Word take your spiritual roots deeper than ever. You can grow deep in this season of stress!
