How not to worry?

I realize that I am supposed to be giving my cares and fears and anxieties up to the Lord but umm..... how exactly does one go about doing that? I feel like we (meaning my husband and I) are at a crossroads of a sort in our lives right now. We are getting ready to move to another state so that he can go to a better and less troubled school (check out FUMARE on the blog roll if you are interested but be prepared to do a lot of reading, on second thought maybe avewatch.org would be easier to navigate, but I digress.) And just when we think things are set to go, he gets scheduled for a brain MRI for a worrying difference in the size of his pupils. If anyone reads this please send up a prayer for my husband's health. In the meantime I should get back to trying not to worry. :(

You are in my prayers!

I've struggled with this question (of *how* exactly you're supposed to turn it all over to God) a lot.

I can't think of a quick way to summarize it (and it's not like I'm any expert on that matter), but I would recommend the book He Leadeth Me by Fr. Walter Ciszek. His story offered me a lot of practical, real-world examples of trusting God even when the going gets really rough.

thanks for the prayers and thanks for the reccommendation. I will definitely check that one out.
