Dealing with Stress:

Successfully Coping with Stress:
Solutions from the Scriptures

1. I will not let my heart be troubled; as I think in my heart so am I; I will think truths. (John 14:1, 27; Proverbs 23:7)

2. I create my own stresses; therefore, I can uncreate and prevent them by living the laws of peace. (D&C 130:20-21; John 10:1; Luke 2: 13-14; 2 Timothy 1:7)

3. I will develop increasing love for others and myself so that my confidence might wax strong. (D&C 121:45-46; Matthew 22: 36-40; Romans 14:22; Moroni 8:16)

4. I can do no better today than my today's best; my best tomorrow will be better. (2 Nephi 28:30)

5. I believe in becoming perfect; I also believe in the law of eternal progression. (President Joseph Fielding Smith)

6. I will do all things in order and be diligent, but no attempt to run faster nor labor more than I have strength. (D&C 10:4; Mosiah 4:27)

7. I will focus my life on the Savior, learn of Him, become "meek and lowly in heart", and I shall have peace in Him. (D&C 11:12-14; Matthew 11: 28-30)
