When faced with stress and tension, there is a process we can take in order to allow God to transform our anxieties. The acronym for this process is G-I-F-T.
G – Gage what the stress or tension is. Sit with God and discern what is at the root of this stress or tension.
I – Invite the stress in. Our tendency is to push stress away. However, when we face our stress, we are able to lessen its power over us.
F – Filter this stress/tension with the gaze of God. God looks upon everything with eyes of love. If we can look at our stress or tension through the filter of his gaze, we can reach the next step.
T – Transform the tension. Act with God and transform your stress or tension.
