Happy Thanksgiving Weekend Folks!

What do you do when your day(s) are (or feel) stressful?  How do you manage your stress?  It’s been a question that I’ve been asking a few friends this week, as I’ve been considering different ways to deal and manage my own stress. 

One of the ways that I’ve found that helps me deal with stress, is listening to worship music. Especially to songs that have good words that speak truth to my heart.  The song, Goodness of God, by Bethel has been filling my mind this week.  Here’s just a few of the lyrics:

I love You, Lord
For Your mercy never failed me
All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

And all my life You have been faithful
And all my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
Oh, I will sing of the goodness of God

‘Cause Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me…

If you’re interested in hearing the song, click here.  (warning…it has a bit of a ‘country flavour’)  😉 

The words of this song remind me of the last verse of Psalm 23, “Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life…”.  These are things that I need to be reminded of.  God IS good…SO good in fact that His goodness PURSUES me ALL the days of my life.  When I listen to the truth of those words, it really does help me put my stress in a better perspective.  

What sort of things help YOU deal with stress?  If you feel like sharing, reply to this email.  I’d love to hear your thoughts.  

We would love to celebrate Thanksgiving with you and your family this Sunday!  Hope you can join us for our 9:45am Sunday School and our 11:00am Worship Service.  

Have a truly blessed and thankful weekend!
