SLL Week 5 – Blog Hop Friday

Does this journey to less stress ever get easier?!

Trust me, friend, it really does. There will come a time when you are going through your every day routines, and suddenly realize that despite the chaos in the air and all the things going on in your life, that strangely – you feel at peace. A peace that’s almost strange, considering all you have going on. And then you’ll smile.

I know that sounds crazy, but that’s what God is best at – doing crazy things in our hearts and lives that we can’t even fathom happening. Stressful situations will always be around, but stressed-out hearts don’t have to be. All things are possible with Him.

I know God has been at work in so many of your hearts in the past few weeks, and I’m excited to read the blogs who will link up to us today and read about some of those inspiring and life changing God-happenings!

As a reminder, below are the blog hop topics and prompts for this week. Take some time to read the devotions and articles linked up and let God speak truth and peace into your heart today! If you find yourself feeling a special connection or closeness with something one of our bloggers shared about, be sure to leave a comment on their blog and encourage them today, as they encouraged you. Smiles.


  • So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive a mercy, and we find grace to help us when we need it most.  Hebrews 4:16
  • Stress is a battle. Choose your weapons Carefully (Ephesians 6:11)
  • God can’t mend our hearts if we never admit they are broken.

    I’m so glad it’s going to get easier. I like what was said about choosing your Spiritual Weapon. I love choosing the Word of God.

    This is,my journey! I’m making changes to my schedule and priorities. But I also need to change my way if thinking and my reactions. I need to #stressless.

    Your encouragement concerning stress is a keeper. To know it gets easier, Tracie, is a good way to end this week and head into the next. Thank you!

    Its so nice to know that this stressed thing will get easier. I have been living in very high stress for the last three years. Now it’s time to give my body a break. Currently I’m suffering a good bit with my stomach & ibs that I know links back to stress. My weapon: The word of God. My plan is to write scriptures on mini notecards that relate to my situation & go through them at least twice a day.
