Trust is not just leaving it up to God. It is also doing whatever is in my control so God need only tip the scale with mercy. Trust doesn't relieve me of my responsibilities. My father, of blessed memory, used to say, "God helps those who help themselves." So one way to relieve fear is to do what is on my control. However, sometimes no matter how hard I try or how long I try, something doesn't work out. I trust in God I am not afraid because I believe God knows the bigger picture. I trust God knows what is best me. This allows me to give my fears and worry to God so I can do something else more productive and positive.
