We need to think positively, to face life fearlessly, and to trust God steadfastly, in order to live life successfully and happily. Really, it's not hard to do. For every fear substitute faith. Learn to say with David, "My soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast" (Psalm 57:1) .... St. Paul knew and practised it, for he advised, "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind."
And isn't that where all the trouble, all the fears, all the despair, all the hopelessness arises— in the mind? No one can control your mind for you, but you, yourself. It is up to you to create the atmosphere in which you wish to live, to stock your mind and your memory with thoughts that will be a help instead of a hindrance. The secret lies in the same 57th Psalm, whose words can be ours, too: "I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. He shall send from heaven, and save me."
