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 comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Nirvana, a concept in several Oriental religions, is the state of detachment from all pain and concerns, which translates ultimately to turning off the capacity to interact with the wound-giving world. “Anxious for nothing” doesn’t mean Nirvana. Christ’s followers are called to be engaged with stark daily reality, not withdraw. Rather, to be “anxious for nothing” means that we are not to worry constantly, or keep turning concerns over in our minds. As we live in the fury of the world, turning over our fears and scars to God, His peace guards us.
