De-stress: What Does It Matter In 5 Years?

Every Wednesday I will post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on marriage, parenting, or life.

What was stressful or really bothering you on March 15, 2012?  Or what was stressful during the month of March 2012 or even the entire year of 2012?  I estimate that 95%+ of us cannot remember any specific stressful situations from the month of March 2012.

My point:  Whatever is stressful during this month of March 2017, we will not remember in five years.  Through prayer and with God’s help, we will cope and handle the challenging situation just fine.  Most of our problems usually pass, the difficulty generally does not persist and stay with us.

TODAY:  With any stressful challenge ask, “WHAT DOES IT MATTER IN 5 YEARS?” and realize that in March 2022 we will probably have forgotten any concerns from today. (March 15, 2017)
