Stress relief.

urban garden 2


All of us need some peace and quiet, to be away from stress. Stress is something that no one asks for or needs in their life. It is not something that feels good, for it can cause serious health issues. It can happen to any of us at any given time. And at any age from child to adult.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

“Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.” 

King James Version (KJV)


We need find a quiet place where we can put GOD 1st in it and have a calm spirit about us as we de-stress. It should be where you can be one on one with our GOD. Yes a quiet time reading GOD’s word is one for me along with, long walks on a nice day, working in the garden, working on crafts and my artwork. Quiet times. My mind is at peace when I am alone with no distractions at all from people or negative things.


1 Thessalonians 4:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

King James Version (KJV)

Even writing this blog and sharing my thoughts is another form of de-stressing my mind because I am praising GOD for what HE has given me my whole life long. I want to share with you a way if you are stressed over anything to go to the LORD 1st and let HIM guide your through it.

Hebrews 13:15

“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” 

King James Version (KJV)

As I am alone in my quiet space while hubby is doing his puttering about the house, I am listening to GOD. To what HE is saying to me about what is troubling me, letting me know HE is there. I need GOD with me at all times. This is a fallen world and many people in it do not realize what they are doing to themselves or other people with the things they do or say. And then some people who know all well what they are doing.

When I am in my garden, I think about the fact that GOD gave me this garden! That GOD is allowing me to grow plants on HIS earth for food or even just to look at for their beauty. To be able to enjoy the food that GOD has designed for us to eat , that has such a fresh and wonderful taste. Nothing is like it!

Genesis 1:29

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which isthe fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Getting the soil on to my hands is calming touching what our GOD has made! Putting the seeds into the soil as the soil will give it life with the help of GOD. Watching them grow and this is a miracle in it self too! A little tiny seed like a grape seed or tomato seed can grow into a plant bearing fruit after its own kind will always amaze me. and this gives me a calming spirit because I know this is how our GOD planned things to be.


Psalm 46:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

King James Version (KJV)

When I am outside enjoying nature, there are things in the Bible that will go with what I see happening in the soil, the animals and how you will see new baby calves bouncing about in the spring, the weather changing and the earth waking up to see the sun.

GOD is good. 100% plus and all of the time!

With being in awe of GODS power and seeing it for myself and being able to smell roses, taste corn, touch the grass beneath my feet, hear the water in the creek, and see bunnies running about in the field! Praise GOD, for HE shows us the good things in life everyday.


Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Stress is a distraction and we all need to know this is not something our loving FATHER GOD wants us to dwell on or have. Even those of us with great levels of faith, will have some stress such as our pastors concerned about the congregation!

If your stress comes from people pray with a full heart at all times. Avoid them as best as you can at all times. If it comes from a situation that you can walk away from, walk away and still pray. If it is a situation you can not, pray for a way that GOD will lead you righteously to get away from it or it from you. Peace is what we need at all times.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Fear not. Give your issues to the LORD in faith, GOD sees the whole picture and knows how to fix it fairly so that it is the best for us all. I have met people as well as you have that seem to have on grudge with the whole world, jealous, and mean towards those they are jealous of.  You can not show kindness to them, for they seem to get angry when you do. So this is why I say let GOD deal with them. HE knows your heart and theirs and will do what is right by you and them.

Galatians 6:9 King James Version (KJV)

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

                                                      King James Version (KJV)

Life is way too short to have to deal with the negative issues some people bring with them from their own life and household into the world of other people. Find a happy place to be alone with the LORD. There you will be able to talk with the FATHER GOD and tell HIM what is on your heart. For those lost souls will not be there with you when you do, and you will have the comfort of GOD and HIS son JESUS with you!

Psalms 91:11

“For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” 

King James Version (KJV)

It is so wonderful to know that GOD and HIS son JESUS is always with us. 24/7, 365 days including leap year.  Be blessed and never stressed….stay in prayer…..stay close to GOD. We do not know when our saviour will return to take us with HIM.  And we need to be ready with our minds off of  worldly distractions.
