Anxious? Burdened? Worried? Pills and Psychology Will Never Deal With the Root Cause of the Problem: Here's the Answer

Jer 17:5  Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD. 
Jer 17:6  He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.
Jer 17:7  "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. 
Jer 17:8  He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit." 
Jer 17:9  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? 
Jer 17:10  "I the LORD search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds." 

Psa 94:17  If the LORD had not been my help, my soul would soon have lived in the land of silence.
Psa 94:18  When I thought, "My foot slips," your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up.
Psa 94:19  When the cares of my heart are many, Your consolations cheer my soul. 

Mat 6:25  "Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 
Mat 6:26  Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 
Mat 6:27  And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 
Mat 6:28  And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 
Mat 6:29  yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 
Mat 6:30  But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 
Mat 6:31  Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 
Mat 6:32  For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 
Mat 6:33  But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 
Mat 6:34  "Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. 

Php 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice
Php 4:5  Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 
Php 4:6  do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 
Php 4:7  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 
Php 4:8  Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
