Finding refuge and rest in God

It seems like everywhere we turn, we hear about the increasing stress of demands placed on us: on the job, in our families, sometimes even on vacation. The joy of accomplishment, the satisfaction of a job well done, and kudos from the boss may not seem to stave off stress—especially when we feel personally responsible for all the work. Advertisements promise relief from health issues associated with such anxiety through physical exercise, artistic expression, special seminars, and the use of drugs to calm and control—at least temporarily—our stress.

But these kinds of measures aren’t intended to get rid of stress entirely, just to manage it. Is merely coping the best we can hope for?
