eternal stability

"So we fill up the space where anxiety grows with humble, lowly “help me” prayers that are full of thanksgiving for God’s goodness, God’s gifts, and the ultimate good gift, the gospel. The gospel is grounds for unassailable joy. If the gospel is true, it puts eternal stability into the hearts of all who believe it. And it is a wellspring of “in everything” thanksgivings. Thanksgiving and worry can’t occupy the same space. Thanksgiving is worry’s kryptonite. You can’t worry if you’re giving thanks."
