This passage is encouraging and intriguing to me for several reasons. 

1) Did you notice that we are actually commanded not to be anxious? Worry is a sin. and if you aren't supposed to be anxious that means you don't have to be anxious. 

2) God tells us to wrap our anxieties in a neat package of praises given to Him.

3) God promises not only to take our burdens from us. He also promises to assign peace to stand guard at our doorstep against anxiety coming back in.

My wife, Samantha, found a quote not long ago she shared that says, "Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere." Remember each morning when you hit your knees before God that he does not intend you to get back up with anxieties in your arms. Leave them on the floor.
