1 Peter 5:7
“Cast your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
All of my worries
All of my stress-ers
All of my fears
All of my insecurities
All of my doubts
Should go to Him. Why? Simply because He loves me. He wants to bear the burden with me. He wants to carry me through my worries. He wants me to trust Him enough to go to Him.
I’ve been working on giving God all of my heart but it’s hard work. I have to remember to go to God first with the state of my heart before I bring it to anyone else. But God makes it easy for me: come to Him with my anxieties because He cares for me. When I’m worried I need to turn to God who cares about me more than anyone else ever will.
*Warning: this is a bit of a tangent* I almost feel silly for having to need this reminder. Of course God cares about me. Of course God wants me to give Him my burdens. It reminds me of that passage in Luke where Jesus is talking about prayer. He will give us more than we could ever ask for because He loves us.
And for His caring and simplicity, I am thankful.
