Anxiety disorders cost Americans more than $40 billion annually. Anxiety disorders manifest themselves in two ways—specific phobias, like fear of spiders or flying, and social phobias, fear of scrutiny, embarrassment or humiliation in the eyes of others.

But to be in God is to be inside the refuge nothing can penetrate.
