she wanted to fly away

as tempting as flying away and leaving problems behind is, real life demands that we stand and face our problems. anticipatory anxiety, (living with what we think possible outcomes of a problem might be), is harmful and can cause damage to our mind, soul, heart and body.  continually replaying "what if this happens?" in our mind - can and will destroy our peace and eventually our life.
"she wanted to fly away"
the answer to anticipatory anxiety and its' effects is given to us in several passages in the Bible.  
Psalm 4 - "meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.  offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord."

Philippians 4 is one of my favorite passages in the Bible and if you are suffering from anxiety, i recommend reading the entire chapter. if we followed the advice given in Philippians 4, we would live a worry-free life.

"be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
