Worry and fear are also things that show an utter lack of faith in an all-caring God who sees me and cares for me.
Back to the practical......when I am irritated or worried, I don't realize that I have tensed up, and am not breathing normally. Obviously, this leads to a lack of oxygen all over my system, and can eventually cause any number of physical problems. When I realize that I am tense, in faith, I can stop, and breathe. Breathe, knowing that God will take care of me. Breathe, knowing that he loves me today. Breathe, because I can trust him. Just by taking a few deep breaths, I am telling God that I believe him, that I am, once again, relinquishing control. I will quiet my spirit and trust.
