Learn about the power of “anticipatory joy” and understand the challenges to newness and how rest helps you take action to step out to create space for new ways to nurture your mental health, instead of busy. Week #6 of the Stress Less Lent Series.
Lent Focus: Jesus is in the Garden of Gethsemane facing his anguish. “Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him… They said to one another, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while he was speaking to us on the road?’” - Luke 24:29-32
Scripture: “Behold, I am making all things new… in you.” Revelations 21:5
Soul Care Tip: Make weekend plans that bring you peace and fun. Research shows that simply making plans revitalizes you with what psychologists call anticipatory joy.

5 Best Love Stories From The Bible
The Bible is full of so many great stories, from struggle to triumph and impossible to miraculous. The most memorable for me are the love stories. There are many different kinds of love stories in the Bible, including parents with their children, friendships and loving your enemies, but I really like the marriage relationships in the Bible. You have to read and study the verses closely, but there is so much to learn about what true love really means and how to remain committed in your relationship.
