Having a stress free life means having the courage to relieve/release the tension causing the stress. I have rose trees in my yard and I understand well the importance of regular pruning. Likewise, you must make regular assessments as to whether or not the load you are carrying or the company you are keeping is helping or hurting and be strong enough to make the necessary cuts now so that you can blossom the way you were meant to later. Be strong… God is with you.
Joshua 1:9 NIV Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
