In 1 Peter 5:7, we are instructed to "cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." God does not want us to carry around the weight of problems and burdens. In this verse, God is telling us to give Him all of our worries and concerns. Why does God want to take on our problems? The Bible says it is because He cares for us. God is concerned about everything that happens to us. No worry is too big or too small for His attention. When we give God our problems, He promises to give us the peace which transcends all understanding (Philippians 4:7). Of course, for those who do not know the Savior, worry and anxiety will be part of life. But to those who have given their lives to Him, Jesus promised, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30).http://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-worry.html

Meditation can sometimes help. Pick your favorite picture or scenery and focus on that. Then concentrate with your eyes closed to stop the thoughts that enter your head one at a time as they enter. Do this while breathing very slow deep breaths for about fifteen minutes at a time. Just take some time and relax afterward. It's ok to relax. Everything can be done in time. Anxiety can begin to affect you physically through real disease. So, before it escalates, meditate and pray.
