Keeping the Wolves of Worry at Bay

Wolves

Refuse to worry!  In this world there will always be something enticing you to worry.  That is the nature of a fallen, fractured planet: Things are not as they should be.  So the temptation to be anxious is constantly with you, trying to worm its way into your mind.

The best defense is continual communication with [Jesus Christ], richly seasoned with thanksgiving.  Awareness of [His] presence fills your mind with Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear. This awareness lifts you up above your circumstances, enabling you to see problems from [His] perspective.  Live close to [Christ]! Together, [with and through Him, you] can keep the wolves of worry at bay.
(c.f. Luke 12:25-26, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

(Sarah Young, Jesus Calling, p 67)
