Humble yourselves, therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
1 Peter 5, verses 6 and 7.
I would have you without carefulness.
1 Corinthians 7, verse 32.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41, verse 10.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen
your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.
Psalm 31, verse 24.
such as thou canst cast on God, and then hold
none back. Never brood over thyself; never stop
short in thyself; but cast thy whole self, even this
very care which distresseth thee, upon God. Be
not anxious about little things, if thou wouldst
learn to trust God with thine all. Act upon faith
in little things; commit thy daily cares and anxieties
to Him; and He will strengthen thy faith for any
greater trials. Rather, give thy whole self into God's
hands, and so trust Him to take care of thee in all
lesser things, as being His, for His own sake,
whose thou art.
E. B. Pusey.
Pastor Roland's comments
Chances are that your problem is that you are lost between your ears. Maybe the best verse of all is:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.
Proverbs 3 verse 5
What happens to us is that early in your life, someone was mean, confusing, or pressuring. You got upset. You fell into thinking, and now at the first sighting of stress, you fall into thinking, daydreams and imagination. We meet stress badly, we fail, and then we retreat into thinking where we plan and scheme our next move. Then what we do is canned and unnatural and the timing is off, so we fail again.
Then we retreat into the endless stream of images in our mind where we hide and feel somewhat secure down there. But being separated from reality, we grow more guilty and less adequate to meet the next moment.
What you need is mental distance, and I can show you how.

Many good people and good Christians would like to believe these verses and would like to cast their cares, and worries upon the Lord, but they don't quite know how. If you will permit me to be so bold, I think I can help you with this disconnect.
