How much stress can our bodies withold? Stress can be defined as mental, emotional, or physical tension, or distress. It was originally an engineering term. Engineers used it in reference to how much pressure or weight could be placed on the steel beams of a building structure without it collapsing. Enough with the lecture, what I simply want to portray is that in our world today, more people are collapsing than buildings. Thousands and thousands of people are sick, and I believe that a lot of our diseases are caused by disease. Nothing is physically more stressful on our bodies than getting angry or upset- especially if we stay that way for very long. No wonder the Bible tells us;
Why angry, do not sin, do not over let your wrath last until the sun goes down (Ephesians 4:26)
Apostle James wrote, “understand this my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry” (James 1:19).
God created us for righteousness, peace, and joy. Our physical body was not meant to house strife, whether it be in the form of worry, fear, hatred, bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness, rage, anger, jealousy, or turmoil, while the body can endure a lot of punishment and still survive, it cannot withstand the day after day stress of living with negative emotions.
Our internal stress is often compounded by the stress we feel from living in a stressful, strife-filled world.
Negative emotions brings a lot of load to your body, different thoughts about life and unmotivated to move forward. Today set that mind above and have faith that God is in control.
