Jesus came to give us “life to the full” not a life full of Stress. In this 40-day devotional book you’ll take a fresh look at Psalm 23 and learn God’s ways for “busting” your stress and replacing it with God’s peace, balance, confidence and success.

Many people equate Psalm 23 with death. When was the last time you went to a funeral and didn’t hear that verse read? But Psalm 23 is really about life; it s about experiencing God as fully as David the shepherd king experienced God. In this Psalm David is sharing with us the paths he took to experiencing God. It starts in green meadows, moves to right paths, goes through dark valleys and comes out with a life that overflows with God’s presence.

Each daily devotional will take you along this path with suggested Bible readings, real-life stories that “puts flesh” on each lesson, reflection questions to make the lessons personal and spiritual growth exercises designed to help you put what you’re learning into practice.

“I am thoroughly enjoying my time in the word with StressBusters. I like how the book combines daily Scripture passages with stories from people who are real. It makes it very easy to understand. Since starting this devotional time I am walking closer with God and feeling more peace in my life.” Tracy

“My husband has a hard time doing a Bible study but we have been using the StressBusters book and love it!” Cammie
