You will break the bow if you keep it always bent. (Greek motto)

Stress can be both helpful and harmful. When we put stress on our muscles (as in exercise), we strengthen them, but if we don’t relax them, they will cramp or do injury to us. When we face stress in life situations, we gather our forces and work hard to complete the task and overcome the tension. Then it’s time to relax and restore our energies.

 When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy (Psalm 94:19). Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).
