When the solution hurts more than the problem

A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body. Prov. 14:30

When we look for solution to stress rather than solutions to problems we too often hurt our physical bodies and sometimes the bodies of Christ to which we belong. We may do things that provide momentary relief, delay dealing with it, or make it temporarily disappear. Christ is the Reconciler of situations, the true Source of peace, inspiration, and solace…but sometimes reaching His solution requires struggle and sacrifice.

Lord, You are my peace. Help me trust instead of worry and to patiently work the problem until the result is real peace and health.
