Worry and anxiety are emotions that every single human being experiences. They're normal responses to many situations we face in life, such as exams or loved ones falling ill. However, when worry and anxiety begin to impact our everyday lives, influence our behaviour and take over our thoughts, they can become a problem.
God doesn't want our lives to be ruled by worried thoughts but by things like peace, hope and joy. The Bible says that God cares about us and that we can go to him about every single one of our cares. Even in the times we feel super-overwhelmed and fearful, God is with us.
Key Bible Verses
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
