I am OK with some kinds of stress. Performance stress is good for you, since it raises your awareness and sends adrenaline coursing through your body…
But I hate most kinds of stress. It lowers joy, saps energy & creativity, and is a continual “white noise” in the brain when you need to think clearly. I don’t think it’s possible to eliminate all stresses from your life. But I don’t want to deal with one bit more than I have to.
The biggest single secret for reducing stress I’ve found (outside of prayer & faith) is SYSTEMS.
Here’s your 5 Minute Mentoring Today:
A Word from Our Sponsor:
This video series is brought to you by SermonSubscribe, providing quality preaching by video.
Are you burned out as a pastor? Need someone to help lift the preaching load for a time? Do you need a sabbatical, but not sure how you will fill the pulpit?
Are you on a pastoral search committee, but you’re struggling to find a good candidate, and make sure someone is able to preach every weekend? Did your pastor retire, and you’re looking for a new one… but you have to bridge the gap until you can hire a new pastor?
You need to check out SermonSubscribe (www.sermonsubscribe.com). Each week, I preach live in Oklahoma City, edit the High-definition video, and send it to churches across the United States. By the middle of the week, those churches have a quality Biblical sermon to download, handouts to print out & copy… and all of this for far less than it costs to bring in a special speaker or interim pastor.
