Leave it with Him

31 03 2011

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.    I Peter 5:7   (Amplified)

Sometimes I feel like a “bag lady” commuting to and from work.  I tend to carry arm loads of heavy bags full of projects that need to be completed.    And despite my intentions, I rarely accomplish what I had hoped by carrying this load around in the first place.  I am clearly carrying around too much stuff. 

Spiritually, I have been guilty of the same habit.  I have carried concerns in my heart and mind hoping that my worry will help to address it somehow.   This passage is another reminder of God’s love and concern for us when we trust Him.   What a blessing that God loves us and cares about everything concerning us.  He is more than able to carry the load, when we leave it with Him.
