Cast Away Your Cares
Anxiety is so debilitating. Body, mind, and spirit can plummet when filled with it, and no one is immune to its effects. But God, in His love and care for you, will take your anxiety onto Himself – just simply cast it to Him. Hurling or throwing something takes focus and force so the object being thrown lands far away from your presence. When you cast your anxiety on God, it gets caught up in His mercy net where He receives the weight anxiety brings and replaces it with His comfort and calm. Nothing is too small or too big – just cast.
And do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink, nor be worried. (Luke 12:29 ESV)
Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6 HCSB)
When you are brought into the synagogues before the leaders and other powerful people, don’t worry about how to defend yourself or what to say. (Luke 12:11 NCV)
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. (I Peter 5:7 NIV)
Lord, it is so hard not to worry, but I know I shouldn’t. You have taken care of me in the past, so I know You will today and in the future. I cast my cares to You now and trust that You are with me and You will provide.
