The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,
Because he trusts in You.
Xanax, Valium, Prozac are reminders that rushing to the local pharmacist to refill a prescription for medication numbing the senses, is a fashionable pursuit for those seeking relief from life's anxieties imposing their daily dose of reality on the unsettled mind.
Mind you, the human being's demand for immediate relief from life's daily adversity, might well become the beginning of reliance on that providing nothing more than a side step from a condition needing treatment restoring our sense of stability.
Trust in Our Saviour's wise guidance is the beginning of wisdom, enabling those of us who walk His path to remain patient with our adversities, pending our enlightenment when the remedy presents us with all we need to mend our ways.
The first step towards remedying our trouble filled circumstances is acknowledging that we need help, beyond feeding the symptoms with pills. We need to reach the root cause of our difficulty, rather than simply reducing the volume.
Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Trusting in the advice that flows from within our inner person is the beginning of a lifelong friendship with The One, leading us out of our self imposed cell of isolation, into His life filled with all that The Father provides for our well being.
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. ~ Matthew 6:6
