1 Tip to Combat Stress & Maintain Peace

Not knowing is hard…

I spent Tuesday night glued to the TV, yet now, not knowing which way our country is going — feels unnerving.

Will we be okay?
What is going to happen?
How will this all work out?

I keep refreshing news websites and swiping on my phone. How long until everything is wrapped up.

Maybe you are there today too — in the space of not knowing. Maybe not knowing is making you feel restless, a little nervous or worried. Maybe it isn’t even the election that is bothering you..but, other areas in your life: finances, marriage, relationships, or health.

You don’t know if you are going to be okay. If things will be okay. If everything will work out.

I understand.

I think the one thing cuts through not knowing is remembering: Christ always has the victory.


“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Ro. 8:37 NLT)

Despite natural outcomes, Christ loves us.
Despite what we see, Christ has a good, perfect and pleasing will.
Despite what feels hard, we are being transformed from glory to glory into His by the Spirit (See 2 Cor. 3:18 KJV)

Nothing can remove the love of Christ for us. Nothing can stop the Lord Almighty. Nothing, with God, is irredeemable.

God can work good, in even, what even seems bad.

“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” (1 Jo. 4:5)

Prayer: Father God, I trust in you. I do not look at what I can see — or what I can’t see. I look at you. I look to you. I wait for you. You are King. You are Lord. You are Conqueror. You are Faithful. Today, I release fear and worry and I take on your faith. I thank you for Jesus, the son, who died for me. I trust Him to continue saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  • Kelly. Months ago your son Michael prayed for my son. My 31 y/o son was battling cancer and bitterness. Just as he was receiving his fourth and final round of chemo, very ill and recovering from invasive back surgery, he shut our family out of his life. He lives 1100 miles away so it’s not as if I could ever visit him. We were in his state twice this year visiting his sister, but he chose not to see us.
    This has been an incredibly difficult year to say the least. BUT GOD has been hard at work!
    Please tell Michael that Tyler has recently started accepting our phone calls and he is 9 months cancer free! And I hear he’s walking perfectly without any assistance – which is miraculous as the surgeon wasn’t sure if he’d ever walk again. I received a text last night saying he missed me and loved me very much and wants to come home for Christmas!! If he is able, please pray he is, it’ll be the first time all five of our kids will be together in two years.
    Thank you, Michael, for praying! God heard your prayers on our behalf and we are very thankful ❤️❤️❤️

  • Articles like this help you find your faith in yourself again Don’t give up and finish what you started. During this difficult period in my life, I am looking for help on the Internet. Such words help, because I know that it is difficult for everyone, the main thing is to believe in yourself and in what you are doing. The author of the article is a wonderful woman who also knows how to cheer up) We need to stop looking only at the phone screen, we need to focus on our life, and not on the lives of other people. I believe that people who want to change their lives will succeed. The main thing is to believe in it. Thanks again for such an easy and helpful article on this gloomy day.

  • Thank you for your encouragement, Kelly. We are going down to Texas Children’s Hospital today to have some tests run for my daughter, who has a rare blood disorder. The possibilities are frightening. I needed to see your posts to remind me that just because there are unknowns for me, God knows what’s ahead and will be by our side all the way, no matter what happens.

  • Very useful for me I like your blog it’s really wonderful.
