Cast Away

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Anxiety can make life very difficult. It can lead to frustration and even doubting God's
sovereignty. Two things to remember.

Cast all your anxiety on him- this is a command not a suggestion.

because he cares for you- When we try to handle our anxiety it often leads to more anxiety.
As an act of love, God puts our burdens on his his shoulders. We learn to trust him, become more humble and progessively start to acknowledge His control in our lives.

Think of these burdens as a grenade. Our first attempt to handle our problems on our own strength- we pull the pin. Now here's the question. When would be a good time to cast away?

God Bless,

A Change
