The Leader and Stress

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1

Have you discovered the differences between problems and facts? Problems are things we can do something about; we can solve problems. Facts are things we can do nothing about; therefore we do well not to worry about them. We should apply energy only to those things we can change. When we do, we can feel peace and act with poise, because we no longer beat our heads against an unbreakable wall.

Psalm 23 reminds us of what God alone can control and what we can control. It distinguishes between problems and facts. It defines God as . . .
Our possession
Our provision
Our peace
Our pardon
Our partner
Our preparation
Our praise
Our paradise
