we prefer to worry

Mr. Oz is much better than Dr. Oz any day, hands down, no question.

See below.

What is the thing that not only disturbs you but makes you a disturbance?It is always something you cannot deal with yourself. “They rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more.”Persist in the disturbance until you yet get face to face with the Lord Himself;do not deify common sense.
Watch how we limit the Lord by remembering what we have allowed Him to do for us in the past: “I always failed there, and I always shall”; consequently we do not ask for what we want, “It is ridiculous to ask God to do this.” If it is an impossibility, it is the thing we have to ask.If it is not an impossible thing, it is not a real disturbance. God will do the absolutely impossible.
Our agony comes through the willful stupidity of our own heart. We won’t believe, we won’t cut the shore line, we prefer to worry on.
If you have faith in Jesus, it is stupid to withhold hope in God for things which seem impossible while leaning only on Him for things you feel you have under control.
It is also stupid to call that “faith.”
Do not attempt to cut the thickness of your pride with the water of self-deprecation. The problem cannot be that you are too far away. Who could be so far that God could not reach them? What problem could be so large as to stump its Creator?
Romans 8:38-39
38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
You are included in the “anything else” category.
You cannot separate God’s love from you if by faith you have received and by grace embraced Jesus as Lord.
Stop trying to defy Scripture by becoming the one thing that God cannot overcome.
He can.
You can’t.
