Declaration of Dependence.

Most of the anxiety in our lives (and I would argue all of it) is due to things that are completely beyond our control.  Think about it -- our health, our wealth, our job security, our personal security, our friends, our future, our kids' future, etc. You name it. There is nothing you can lose sleep over that cannot be ripped from you (or tremendously altered) at a moment's notice.

So what is our response? Pull the covers over our head in despair? For many, that's exactly the response -- or worse. But not for us. We have hope. I sleep better at night, even in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, when I remember this truth.

What are you depending on?
