Cast Your Cares

likeachild2.jpegWhen was the last time you talked to Jesus?  Shared your heart with childlike abandon, unafraid to pour out your heart to your Savior, your mind undistracted by less important things?  We all know and love the verse in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”  But do we cast our anxieties on Him?  Do we tell Him about our fears and our apprehensions?  Our struggles and sorrows and secret heartbreaks?  He cares for us with an all-powerful, ever-loving care.  Come to Him with your problems.  He is eternally willing and infinitely able to help us.

Every prayer does not begin with “Dear Father” and end with “Amen”.  Some prayers are too poignant for words, others are desperate yearnings.  All are heard by the Father.  So pray constantly…not always on your knees with hands folded, but just in such a way that you live your whole life and go through each of your daily rituals, no matter how mundane, in the presence of God.

Don’t be afraid!  Come to your loving Heavenly Father with the happy boldness of a child approaching her daddy.  Go to His side and whisper your heart’s secrets.  He is faithful, He will help us.  All we need to do is ask.  Shut out the world and its habitual clamoring and ceaseless pressures…and just be still with your Lord.  Find that peace which passes understanding and learn once again how much He cares for you.
