Have you ever seen a fire hose get loose?  The water pressure becomes to great and causes the hose to slip from the hands of the fireman and the hose swings wildly, to and fro, up and down, like a snake gone wild, trying to escape from itself.  It can be a danger.  The remedy is to relieve the water pressure, so the hose will lay still.

Likewise, I see stress fractures in my friends lives and in the lives of people around us.  Even in my own life.


There is an answer.  But, we must embrace the answer – or better yet, The Answer, let Jesus, embrace us, so we can rest.

I could go into a long and detailed message copied from some psychology oriented website, but, few would read it.  So, let’s keep this short and to the point. 

1.  This requires you trust what is being written and just do it.

2.  Your mind needs to be a wiped clean of the daily distractions:

a.  For the next 24 hours:  No News Channels;  No Newspapers;  No FACEBOOK or other social media.

b.  Your mind needs to be as close to a clean sheet of paper as possible for this to work.  The Bible refers to this state as “childlike faith”, untainted by the world and untarnished by the sin of this world.

c.  Revelation 3:17 “Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked”

d.  You must come to Jesus as His disciple, admitting you are Poor in Spirit,  (from the Greek language), “Ptochos,” (Matthew 5:3) – You actually need to act this out, aloud.

i)    Jesus, I am reduced to begging and asking alms;

ii)   Jesus, I am destitute of wealth, influence, position or honor.

iii)  Jesus, I am lowly, afflicted, destitute of the Christian virtues and eternal riches.

iv)  Jesus, I am helpless, powerless to accomplish an end.

v)   Jesus, I am poor, needy.

vi)  Jesus, I am lacking in anything as respects the spirit.

vii) Jesus, I am destitute of learning and intellectual culture .which schools afford.

People of this class most readily give themselves up to Christ’s teaching and proved themselves fitted to lay hold of the heavenly treasure.

Once you reach out to Jesus, in this state, you are where it can begin:  NOW, YOURS IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

NOW, “You will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.” (2 Corinthians 9:11)

3.  Set the conditions of worship.  Prepare the mind to relax and receive.

a)  Go to the videos and listen and meditate and rest.  If you fall asleep, just rest: 

Your Brother and Friend,
