Roll Your Worries Away-Day #12 of Thanksgiving

Here's another way of saying this:
Casting the whole of your care
[all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all]
on Him,
for He cares for you affectionately
and cares about you watchfully.
1 Peter 5:7 [Amplified]

Ruth Bell Graham, a Christian author and poet, said this about 1 Peter 5:7-
"The Amplified Bible pictures us committing our load to God
by rolling it onto Him. 
It is helpful to note that we can roll something that is too heavy to carry or to cast."

God is teaching me to
"let Him have"
all my worries and cares.
They are, indeed, too heavy for me to carry or cast.
By His grace, He reminds me
to turn my eyes upon Him when I'm tempted to worry.
He helps me see His fingerprints all over my life in this season.
He fills my mind with His thoughts when I get depressed.

I am so thankful that I can give Him my worries
and that He cares for me
affectionately and watchfully.

How do you handle your worries and cares?
Do the holidays add to them?

Grace and peace to you, my friends!
Love, Karen

I love I Peter 5:7! Thank you so much for reading my story and for sharing yours with me. His forgiveness is amazing and complete and we all need it. What an amazing difference He has made in your life as He has in mine. Thank you for the encouragement.
