GOD PAUSE: Several years ago, Michele and I were going through a very difficult time in our lives. And we made a very wise decision to have some professional Christian counseling. We took what was called a stress assessment and it was off the charts. The counseling with God's Holy Word turned everything around for us. In Psalms 119:143, David says “As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.” You know something? You and I cannot live without stress in life. It just goes with the territory. But running to --- and soaking in --- the words of the Lord can make all the difference for us. Papa, in our stressful world, we go to the refuge and strength of Your Word, the Holy Bible. And our hearts are filled with the joy and peace they give. Amen and amen.
