Practice Makes Perfect

The Webster's definition of anxiety is: 
1. painful or apprehensive uneasiness of mind usually over an impending or anticipated ill 

2. an abnormal and overwhelming sense of apprehension and fear often marked by physiological signs (as sweating, tension, and increased pulse), by doubt concerning the reality and nature of the threat, and by self-doubt about one's capacity to cope with it
We live in an anxious world  filled with stressed out people. That's not God's plan.

Look at the verses around verse 6. 
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

God's way is always the best way. Accept His peace and give Him your worries. That is a pretty nice trade.
Thank you Jesus!
