Faith and worry

How do you have complete faith in God? Someone once said that worry should not occur when we have total faith in God.  But what happens when we get seriously ill? Yes we worry about our fate, and the ones we may leave behind. How about when our children get lost for an instant, do we have enough faith not to worry?  Should we be concerned about our connection with God when we worry?  This will be an interesting question for those who are involved in their religions.

For those who have complete faith in God, should they be worried about their high blood glucose level, hypertension, an unknown growth on their bodies, or any illness? Can they have enough faith in God not worry? Would taking medicine and seeking medical assistance lessen their faith in God?

In the Tip of the Writing Brush is written that God created mankind to live a joyous life. This parental God also created doctors and medicine to help people.

In summary, worry may be a normal human trait that is acceptable to God. Faith on the other hand is a learned skill that only comes from our experiences.
