I just purchased Lewis' Anthology of MacDonald and a certain section of the preface reminded me of your post here:

"His (MacDonald's) resolute condemnations of anxiety come from one who has a right to speak; nor does their tone encourage the theory that they owe anything to the pathological wishful thinking - the spesphthisica - of the consumptive. None of the evidence suggests such a character. His peace of mind came not from building on the future but from resting in what he called 'the Holy present.'"

And also this - Quote 72 labeled Fearful Thinking by Lewis:
"Because we easily imagine ourselves in want, we imagine God ready to forsake us."
