Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
—Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
Have you forgotten that I am here? Whatever you face I am with you. Look to me to take care of it all. Trust me. Lean on me. Rely on me. Let go of all your burdens and give them to me with thanksgiving—knowing that I will take care of all the concerns of your heart. You can be free in me. You can move on rejoicing that I have you and all of your worries in my care. It is time. You have tried far too long to fix what I only can fix. If you don't release everything to me, you will crash. Give me all your concerns, your fears, your torment, your hurt, your pain, and trust me to take care of each one the way I know is best. Only then will my amazing peace be yours, and continually guard your heart from fear and your mind from the destructive thoughts which have plagued you. Each time one springs to mind release it to me. Don’t claim it as your own. Claim me. You belong to me, and I take perfect care of what is my own.
