The peace that comes from talking things over with your best friend

The greatest enemy of joy is anxiety. To a certain extent anxiety is natural; it helps us avoid danger. Sometimes, though, it becomes a type of mental illness because it bears little relation to reality. But for most of us anxiety is what Norman Vincent Peale called ‘an unhealthy and destructive mental habit.’ It’s become a way of thinking that makes us miserable. When that happens the only way to overcome it is by changing the way of thinking. That’s why the Bible says, ‘Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.’
It’s all about the peace that comes from talking things over with your best friend.
