Our Ultimate Care-Giver

Unnecessary burdens are crushing the life out of people every day. Mental institutions are overflowing and psychiatrists are doing a rushing business because the burden of living is getting to be more than we can bear. Civilization has not made our lot easier except in things pertaining to the body; the burdens of the heart are growing more numerous, and science has found no remedy. The silky voice of the practitioner may soothe the mind for a time, but the disease is too deep to yield itself to such inadequate measures.

Surely we could live longer and better and be far happier and more useful if we could learn to cast our burdens upon the Lord. Then it would not matter how heavy they were, for He would carry them for us.

Verse

Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you. First Peter 5:7

Thought

Because He cares for us we can unload upon God all our anxieties--heavy or light. He does care for us!

Prayer

Your Word assures me that You care for me. Your care, Father, is expressed is so many ways not least of which is bearing my anxieties.
