"There your people finally settled, and with a bountiful harvest, O God, you provided for your needy people. " Psalm 68:10
The slightest wave in our life that is going smoothly and we run frantically to the comfort of our anxious thoughts and our "what if's?" We run to try to find as many solutions as we can to the problem that has cropped up as if the solution lies in our human hands. We go into a frenzied "survival" mode of anxiousness and what we view as action to "fix" our problems, when we need to run to God.
We should all desire a settled and secure faith. One that is deeply developed and where God is leaned upon as our unwavering tower.
Surround yourself with the word of God, good reading of solid Christian men and women who are secure in the arms of God and build yourself up. Forsake other foolish pursuits and pour yourself into what is worthwhile and your soul will be filled. Spending time pursuing God, the only One who matters, will never be regretted.

untroubled by fear of harm.” Proverbs 1:33
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:29-31
"And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
"No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:37-39
