1 Peter 5:7 New International Version (NIV) ~
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
I was challenged to go inside this toy space ship and look out. Of course I did and we laughed so hard. I was at a Ladies Retreat with several friends. My problem wasn't getting inside of it, but out of it. I think we laughed even harder, but I did it.
This example brings me to the places of life where I can get myself into. Then the wonder of how I will get out of it or over it. It depends on what I am facing. So many times we don't realize what we are inside of at times. In the picture, I was inside a space ship that could have carried me far away if it were real. Inside my life is Jesus who lives and can carry my troubles far away.
The Bible says to CAST ALL your anxiety on God!
Psalm 55:22-23 New International Version (NIV)
22 Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.
23 But you, God, will bring down the wicked
into the pit of decay;
the bloodthirsty and deceitful
will not live out half their days.
But as for me, I trust in you.
CAST YOUR CARES ~
Toss it away and don't go after it!
Together we learn things in life from childhood to adulthood. We see examples of others and we wish were them or maybe we wish we were not them. Bringing us to thoughts of our own lives and what do we need to do to better our lives. God wants us to live in freedom of mind and thoughts. God wants us to live in freedom of a new day and not to remind ourselves of the things we can do nothing about.
Just like the picture above of me in the pretend space ship, I often wonder how things will work out. I am inside of a situation and now I need to get out. I need to realize that God is in charge of my space ship of life and he knows exactly how fast I need to arrive at something. No fear and allowing him to guide my life so gently. I am reminded of all the things God has brought me through and his favor is upon my life. His favor is upon your life too when you have surrendered all of you to God. A simple asking of forgiveness of sin and God into your heart. A lifestyle that will change in wanting to know God more and living through his word (Bible).
Come on join me today in seeing yourself free from the old and moving into a new day of hope! I know that somethings in life can be breath taking and hard to bear. I also know that others things lift our hearts up as we cast things away. Mixed together to see yourself stronger than ever and able to handle today. My prayers continue for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. I thank you for taking time to read this and share it with someone.
God is a God is hope and love. He is our strength in the darkness hour and the hope of today. His love is amazing and I can't imagine my life without talking to God. I want him to use my life to write and help others. Along the way, someone prayed for me and continues to pray for me. I count blessings daily and choose to cast something away. Even if they come back, cast again and again. Live your life in freedom of mind. Go head ~ CAST.
