It’s the unknown part of tomorrow that creates the fear and worry. There is no way that anyone can know exactly what will happen tomorrow. … Yet, as a Christian, you know that God is timeless. With the Creator, there is no yesterday, or today, or tomorrow – just endless, seamless time. You don’t need to worry about tomorrow anymore because God is already there.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2013)

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
—Psalm 46:1-3 (NRSV)
