    Do away with all your worries and regrets. What am I trying to say in essence? I'm saying that you should cast all your worries or regrets on God. For, he (God) cares for you scripture reference (1st Peter 5:7). Mind you, if you keep on worrying or regretting, you cannot and will not help your condition. Rather, you will end up worsening it. But, when you cast all your worries on God. He will surely put his peace or calmness in your heart and life and as well he will take care of you. Yes of course, he can and he will surely take care of you. So, quit worrying or regretting over and over again. -Emeasoba George
