Dealing with: Stress

One word that can sum up my whole college life: stress. Stress can be caused by all kinds of things: work, money, school, guys, family, or even friends. Stress can cause us to do things we will later regret, like spouting off to someone, giving in to a situation where we are pressured, or just giving up. I wish there was a simple solution to stress, but I don't know of one. The Bible does, however, give encouragement when it comes to stress.

"Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light." Matthew 11:28-30
