Stress digestion: "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" John 16:33. Before we have peace in Jesus, because we learn how to have a relationship with Him, we have lots of pain and stress to deal with "on our own". We are never on our own or we'd be dead, being conscious of His presense does something to us. Don't get the false impression that Jesus is there to make your life more comfortable for comfort's sake. No! He gives you a new way to digest the same pain and the same stress that life throws your way. I'm talking about unavoidable stresses of life; sickness, exhaustion, death, money, sin, loss ect. He tells us that, unlike Santa Clause, if we're good we will still have trouble still, He says "we will have trouble but to take heart" (because He will help your spiritual body digest it better so that it doesn't mess with your joy). Our physical and spiritual body digests things differently when we have the peace Jesus gives. Resolve to digest your stress and pain, don't be mad it still exists.
