Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
I Peter 5:7
What do you do with your worries? We all have them. We can’t help what comes into our heads, but once there, we have choices. The trouble is worry feels productive. It feels like we are attempting to solve something. It feels like we are getting close to resolution, but all we really are doing is repeatedly ruminating all these negative scenarios in our heads. Situations can cause us to be concerned, shocked, apprehensive, cautioned, and even horrified. But after our initial reaction, we can reflect, review the situation and take action. Worry, however, just worries. It doesn’t stop; it goes on and on unless we do something to make it quit. We need something bigger than our worries to take care of them. That is why Peter says you can give all your worries and cares to God. Why? Because He is God, He is big enough! And because He cares about you! Can you feel your body relax? He cares for you. Can you feel the worries leave? How wonderful. Today, don’t hang on to your worries one more second. Give them to God. He cares about you.
Dear Father God. Thank You for caring so deeply for me. I am bringing all my worries and cares to You. Help me to leave them there.
