May 19: Reflections on Sources of Stress

Spring Finals: May 19-23

            Sometimes, the way to manage stress is to deconstruct our anxieties. So we take this time to reflect on the sources of our stress. May we find that some of our stressors are not as threatening as they once seemed. May we discover that other stressors are necessary yet temporary, and we will soon celebrate the rewards of our efforts. We also acknowledge that some stress cannot be reasoned away, so we ask God to give us the strength not to dwell upon these anxieties. We pray our reflection will not become a spiral of worry but an attempt to thrive in times of stress by trusting in God.
