Harnessing Stress - Bible Study


How can we harness stress to make us more productive? How can we glorify God despite our stressful circumstances? Stress can cause a host of emotional, spiritual, and physical problems. None of us, however, can avoid stress completely. The key is not to eliminate stress, but to handle it in a way that is godly and productive.
