I feel like I struggle with trusting in God and leaving things in his hands. I tend it worry too much and I drive myself crazy. I keep thinking "what if so & so happens," making matters seem worst then they really are or creating an issue out of nothing. I worry about the smallest things. Any advice? I know it's a sin & I am trying to overcome those thoughts so please don't judge me but I would be very grateful if you share a Bible verse, psalm or advice that would help me out & please pray for me.


  • Psalm 91
    He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
    Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
    My God, in Him I will trust.”
    3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
    And from the perilous pestilence.
    4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
    And under His wings you shall take refuge;
    His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
    5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
    Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
    6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
    Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
    7 A thousand may fall at your side,
    And ten thousand at your right hand;
    But it shall not come near you.
    8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
    And see the reward of the wicked.
    9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
    Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
    10 No evil shall befall you,
    Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
    11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
    To keep you in all your ways.
    12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
    The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
    14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
    I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
    15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will deliver him and honor him.
    16 With long life I will satisfy him,
    And show him My salvation.”
  • Psalm 46:10
    "Be still and know that I am God."
  • Matthew 6:34

    Therefore do not worry over tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    I also struggle with worry over tiny things, especially the future and what if this or that happens and how to plan to avoid it, when in reality it probably won't even happen that way. This one helps me more than any other.
