Caring Enough to Worry

I’m having trouble getting why we should’t worry.   If I really care about the outcome of a situation, and the outcome is presently not turning out well, shouldn’t I worry?

Jesus makes a pretty strong case against worry at the end of Matthew 6.  He’s God, he cares more about stuff than we do, and worry never accomplished anything anyway.

Maybe I’m just stuck on semantics.  A certain amount of concern is needed when things aren’t going right.  Despair or worry goes too far because it goes without God.
