Under “normal” circumstances stress is a fact of life. But in more recent times the problems of stress have accelerated exponentially.
Today’s list based on Philippians 4 and adapted from Alice Gray, Steve Stephens, and John Van Diest’s book of lists, offers a practical, doable, and scriptural method to manage stress.
