You may even remember a Bible verse or several of them. But still, the unsettled feelings continue to haunt you. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." — Philippians 4:6 For all of us, at some point in our lives, there were situations that were so overwhelming, so challenging, so distressing that we just couldn't help worrying about them.
