October 2020 Pastor's Pen


A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water everyone expected they would be asked the “half empty or half full question" Instead with a smile on her face she inquired" How heavy is this glass of water"? Answers were called out 8oz-20oz. She replied," the absolute weight doesn't matter". It depends on how long I hold it. If l hold it a minute no problem, if l hold it an hour I’ll have an ache in my arm. If l hold it for a day my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer l hold it the heavier it becomes.

 


 


She continued" the stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing much happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. If you think about them all day long you become paralyzed, incapable of doing anything.

 


 


REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR WORRIES AND THE GLASS DOWN!

 


                                                       Yours in Christ,

 



                                                       Rev. Walter Coy
