Good morning.

Often the stress of everyday life can leave us feeling so exhausted that we lose sight of both our gifting and our calling. We no longer even remember who we were created to be.

"We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

God created you to accomplish some meaningful things in this life. What are you best at? What were you put here to do?

A study of some great leaders revealed that they had one thing in common - they did what they were best at when they were at their best. They worked in their area of gifting and passion when their energy was at its highest during the day. And as a result, they got their top priorities accomplished day in and day out.

For us to move from being overwhelmed by what we perceive to be pressures of life to a stress free life we need to live in a fundamentally different way.

Isaiah gives us clue as to the how - "but those who hope in (wait on) the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

God's purpose for us is not a stressful life.

"For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord , ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)

Take time today to quieten yourself down and wait on Him.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
