ANXIETY! PSYCHIATRISTS, COUNSELORS, PASTORS and others who are in the helping/healing professions deal regularly with upset, scared, anxious people. There are a thousand reasons why people live lives of distress and uneasiness.  Even the Psalmist said, “ … my soul refused to be comforted.”

Psalms 77:2 (kjv)

It’s far beyond my ability to provide a complete answer, but I’m convinced that the closest answer is this:

“Be careful for nothing [force yourself to reject worry]; but in every [little] thing by prayer [when was the last time you got alone with God] supplication [humble prayer] with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God [tell Him – He loves to hear you praise Him].  And [this is what is going to happen] the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 (kjv)

I have NEVER read anything in the Bible that in order to have peace you should eat cheese with your whine!  It says,

“Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!”
Philippians 4:4-5 (msg)
