A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
(Proverbs 15:13)

Have you ever looked at a person with a sad or anxious face? They have a dark cloud over them and their face is full of sadness and worry. You have to wonder if their face bares the fruit of their Bible.

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
(1 Peter 5:7, Amplified Bible)

As long as you carry your cares of this world in your heart you will be weighed down with them and sink away from the power and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. When you fix your eyes and heart on Him, you will be closer to His power and love. Wherever Jesus went He would always tell the people to go or be in peace. When your eyes are upon Him and not on the cares of this world His joy and peace will overflow through you. This will bring the Lord Jesus Christ’s healing joy, peace and victory to you.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 15:13)
These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
(John 15:11)
You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.
(Acts 2:28)
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 15:13)
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
(1 John 4:4)
