    The Mega Stress Attack by PI Girl Victoria

    When I am stressed, it really hinders my ability to function. I freeze up. My brain seems to shut down and I can’t think straight. Every time I try to think about something remotely important (in any way, shape or form), I get even more stressed.

    Sometimes the stress only lasts for a little while, and after a talk with my mom, encouragement from a few friends, prayer and MANY deep breaths, it’s over, and I realize I didn’t need to be that stressed.

    Then, other times, I have a MEGA STRESS BREAKDOWN.

    No matter how much comfort my family and friends supply, it only makes me feel better for a few minutes. Any idea of something productive becomes impossible. Every small thing that happens to me seems to be TEN TIMES worse than it actually is. And I even know that things aren’t as bad as I have told myself. But for some reason I can’t shake the SUPER STRESSED feeling.

    My life falls apart in my head, and though this seems dramatic, it’s how I feel. Anything remotely unfortunate that has happened recently seems much worse. Like accidentally doing something dumb in front of someone at youth group or getting a C on my biology test, it all blows up in my mind.

    This is when I have to BREATHE! Turn on the music, get out my Bible and really just ask God to help me get through the day. I may get a few things done, but nothing like I had wanted, and I have to trust Him that all the school I didn’t get done will work out okay. That the fact that it’s Thursday and I’ve done almost no school the whole week will be okay, that maybe there was something else God had in mind for me to do.

    It’s now that I really can appreciate my homeschooling to the proper degree. When my mind blows a fuse, I can take the day off to calm myself down and give my worries to God.

    Really I’m not sure why my stress gets so bad. I really don’t have a reason for it. I don’t have to much to do, and what I have isn’t that hard.

    In these times, there is really only one thing that will give me peace in my stress. And that is Christ.

    So when you’re dealing with a MEGA STRESS ATTACK (or even just normal stress), remember God is there, knowing every bit of what you feel, and that he will give you peace.

    Be still and know that I am God. (Psalms 46:10)

    Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? (Matthew 6:27)

    Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

    Peace I leave with you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)
