STOP AND THINK – Worry is the antithesis of trust. You simply cannot do both. They are mutually exclusive. (Elisabeth Elliot, late widow of a missionary martyr)

The uncertainty and pain of problems on the job, at school, or in the family may bring on anxiety and constant worry. How will things work out, will this stress ever go away? Elliot implies that trust may be the way out. Putting your faith in something beyond yourself instead of trusting in your own abilities can relieve stress and worry.

Those who trust in themselves are fools (Proverbs 28:26). Cast all your anxiety on him [Jesus] because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).
