Worry is a cycle of inefficient thought, centered on a fear. (Quoted by Corrie ten Boom, Holocaust survivor)

People worry about a lot of different things: money, romance, politics, crime—the list is endless. We all know, of course, that worrying doesn’t solve problems. As ten Boom says, it is a very inefficient method for solving problems. We must learn to face our fears, work out a plan to address the problem, seek counsel, perhaps, and be courageous in facing life.

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? . . . Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. (Matthew 6:27, 34).
