Spiritual Alignment in a Stressful World Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteousness to be moved. Psalm 55:22 Stress is an inevitable part of human existence. Whether it’s the pressures of work, family responsibilities, or personal challenges, stress affects us all. Just as chiropractic adjustments align the spine, faith aligns our hearts and minds. When our physical and spiritual selves are in harmony, stress dissipates.
I believe the best way to reduce stress in the world is by having a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father, the creator of life, the keeper of peace. The Bible says to not fear 365 times according to Scripture. Since there are 365 days in a year, this is our promise from God to not be fearful in the stress- filled world every day of our lives. I believe we as human beings get so caught up in our day-to-day schedules and tasks that even a simple reminder on a t-shirt that Jesus loves us and cares for us allows the opportunity for our minds to settle down and center on the fact that Jesus is the only way to true peace. I like to wear Jesus themed t-shirts, and I find that people will frequently come and talk to me about the implications the messages hold. In my personal faith journey, God has led me to be a light in this dark, stressful world. My objective is to live my life as close as I can to Jesus and teach as many people as I can about the Good News to provide the hope I have in Jesus to those around me. Upon graduation from my chiropractic program, I have plans to open my own practice. I believe that having my own business allows for the opportunity to create a platform to spread the good news of the Gospel. By being the boss of my own business, I will be able cultivate an atmosphere in my clinic that is Christ-centered and allows for open conversations about faith, should my patients wish to discuss. I plan to anoint my walls of the clinic with Scripture and promises that walking with Jesus is better than being overcome by the stresses of this world. Like my t-shirts, by promoting Jesus on the walls, my goal is to allow faith-filled conversations to flourish as my patients wish to dive further into their journeys.
Chiropractic care and Christian faith are not mutually exclusive; they complement each other. By addressing physical symptoms and nurturing our spiritual well-being, we can reduce stress and live more abundant lives. Let us embrace both paths toward wholeness and find peace amidst life’s challenges. Jacob Vallee is a student at Texas College of Chiropractic in Pasadena, TX. He plans to graduate in December of 2027.
