I Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on Him for He cares for you.
I remember hearing a sermon on this verse one time and how the word “cast” is all about throwing something out and not reeling it back in.
And then the word “all” is about EVERYTHING…not just a few things, but every single thing that is stirring up anxious thoughts in your heart and mind.
WHY SHOULD WE DO THIS?
Because He cares for us.
I love to think of a Father who doesn’t take a deep sigh when I come to Him with a request as if I am keeping Him from what He really wants to do.
I love to think of a Father who always has time.
I love to think of a Father who is so absorbed in His children that nothing can cause Him to become exasperated………
When I picture God like this, I feel safe pouring out my heart.
And I believe that God wants us to feel safe with Him.
If you woke up this morning feeling anxious about your week or about your life, please know that you have a Father who wants to take it all from you and allow you to walk in peace.
I’m heading to work early and hoping that along the way, I can do some casting.
PS Our son Todd is 17 today! Where does the time go????
Love you all,
