"Trust does not eliminate the bad things that may happen (in life)....  Trust simply finds a new outlet for anxiety and a new grounding for confidence: God.  Let God worry about the worrisome details of life, most of which are out of (our) control anyway."

- Philip Yancey, Rumors of Another World/
