Stress Reliever

by Dara Jannes Obmerga

That night was was so peaceful as I lay in my bed looking at the window. The silence was overwhelming. Then all of a sudden, I imagined myself opening the window and right away, I flew up in the sky.

I felt the cold wind kissing my lips as I fly rapidly all over the city. I imagined myself flying through the white clouds. For the first time in my entire life, I saw the moon and the stars smiling and shining near my very eyes. I also saw the oblivious people walking around the city not knowing that there’s someone flying around and watching them. It was full of adventure and emotions.

Finally, when my imagination came to an end that night, I felt I was like a little child. But it was such a great experience flying around (I think it is everybody’s dream to fly right?) because I was able to see the beauty of God’s creation, even if it was only from my mind.

One way of easing your mind is thinking of good things, instead of excessively thinking of your struggles and fears. When you keep on thinking and dwelling on negative things like other’s business (gossip), irritating co-worker, heartbreaking love life, difficult school paper, tons of pimples, past mistakes, current sickness, uncertain future or financial scarcity, you are just burning yourself out. Don’t stress yourself with useless thinking. It won’t do anything to solve them. In fact, it only affects your health badly.

The Bible says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things” (Philippians 4:8).

Things that are going around your mind are very important because they really affect the way you view life.

So if you want true peace of mind, go ahead and meditate on God’s Word, ponder on God’s beautiful creation just like what I did and lay down everything that causes you to be stressed at Jesus’ feet.
