Personal Peace is Possible

Worry and stress are horrible things.  In my lifetime, I’ve been paralyzed at times because I couldn’t handle what was going on.  As a Christian, this was quite embarrassing and frustrating. 

Yes, the Bible promises all these things IF you are actively seeking a relationship with God, studying His word and developing your prayer life.  You can find joy, peace and harmony — if you daily strive to know God and apply His word to your life.

When I went through changing my business model and finances it was a tight rope act at times.  Had I been the old Nathan, I know with 100% confidence that I would have been committed to a mental asylum. 

But I knew where I was headed and where God wanted me. I had peace.  My wife saw it in me.  My daughter saw it in me.  Others around me saw it in me. 

Do I still have hard times? Yes! Did I have moments of worry?  Yes!  Did I let worry and stress consume me?  NOPE! 

Life Lesson:  God loves you and cares for you, but to get the benefits God has for you, you must walk with Him daily.

What pain is this issue causing you?  The pain and misery are NOT going to get any better until you admit the problem and start the process of changing. 
Stop denying, stop delaying and start admitting you need to make changes. 
Second Step: Identify  
Is your problem the real problem?  Or is your “problem” just a symptom of a deeper …
