Bring a picture of a fish

Sit and watch a school of fish. Or as I do, sit on the edge of the fishpond, and just stare at the fish, it is bound to calm your worry. 
The fish do not worry whether or not it is going to rain. They could care less whether or not you are going to feed them; because they 
know that somehow or other there will be food for them to eat. They are just content to keep on swimming and swimming, enjoying being fish. 

Zephaniah 3:17 
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee
with singing.
