Do You Run to or Away From God When Pressure Comes?

"Under pressure, we either run to God, or away from God." James Barnett, president of DaySpring, shared that thought with us the other day.

So, how about you? How are you handling pressure and stress today? Are you taking it to the Lord in prayer for His direction and His response on how you should respond?

Do you need the words, courage, perseverance, wisdom or direction?

Rick Warren said: "God changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds using time and pressure. He's working on you, too."
