Ps 23:1: The Lord is my shepherd. He leads me, guides me, and restores me. Though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I will fear no evil. Matthew 6:25: Do not be anxious. Mark 4:35-40: Jesus in boat – Be still and do not fear. 2 Corinthians 5:14: The love of Christ compels us. Isaiah 26:3: The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace because he trusts in You. 1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, casting all your anxieties on Him. Matthew 11:28: Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Isaiah 40:31 Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. 1 John 4:18: Perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment and the one who fears is not perfected in love.

1 Peter 1:7: So that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable even though tested by fire may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. James 1:2: Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials. Heb 12:11: All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.

Jesus will give rest and peace. Cast all my worries on Jesus otherwise the word will be choked.

God expressed his love by sending Jesus to die for us. Philippians 2:6-8: Although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
