This is what I know: Mostly all of us encounter stress, in one form or another. The weight of that stress can try to overload our souls. And we all have to learn how to deal with stress so that it doesn’t deal with us.

Overload: How to Unplug, Unwind, and Unleash Yourself from the Pressure of Stress

by Joyce Meyer

#1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer shows readers how to become free from the burden of stress so that they can achieve God’s best for their lives.

As technology increases your accessibility, it becomes harder to mute the background noise of your life and receive God’s guidance. Joyce Meyer calls this OVERLOAD, when the demands of your busy life become all-consuming and overwhelming. But to experience the joyful life God has planned, you must make time to focus on His Word. Then you’ll receive His healing calmness and gain the strength to take on life’s challenges, from physical ailments to problems in relationships. Through the practical advice and Scriptural wisdom in this book, you’ll learn how to unplug and free yourself from burdens that weigh you down. You’ll gain simple, effective tips for better rest and stress management and discover the fulfilling life you were meant to lead. 

Not only is Joyce Meyer an accomplished and prolific author, but as many of you may know, she is a minister of the Gospel and is on TV and radio around the world. I was listening to a ministry podcast of hers recently, and she shared that this book was birthed out of her own struggles with stress. I immediately wanted to hear more. And I am so glad for this book…it is very timely for me in this season of my life.

Overload Joyce Meyer

Overload is aimed at helping us to live a de-stressed life, with God’s help. It’s written in a simple and straightforward manner, and is easy to follow, understand and digest. Joyce uses real life examples to illustrate points throughout the book, much like Jesus does in the Bible for us {you can’t go wrong following His example, right? :)}

Overload Joyce Meyer

Each chapter focuses on one particular topic, and is filled with simple Biblical principles. She addresses things like: the stress of comparison, what we are saying out of our mouths, making decisions, having a plan, and so on. Each chapter ends with  “Things to Remember” – practical points for us as readers to implement.

The pairing of the spiritual principles and practical applications is what I love the most. and the fact that Joyce is transparent about her own life and stress is priceless. I personally feel as though I walk in more and more freedom as I keep reading. God wants us free to enjoy the abundant life in Him that Jesus died for us to have!

I think that it is vital to have wisdom from God on how to deal with stress. Overload is a great resource to have to help to guide us scripturally and practically. You can get a hold of this book in the following places:
