When those worries creep in – and they will – here is a quick list to help you refocus.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34
“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? 26 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? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life” Matthew 6:25-27
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up. Proverbs 12:25
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Psalm 56:3
Do you have a go to verse for when you are worried? Does worry ever make you doubt your faith? Why or why not?
