“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

— 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)


There is nothing like having someone care for you. Someone to be there for you and someone to lean on. We have all kinds of life situations. Some are harder than others. But when life gets full of anxiety, we have a God that knows us. 

Thank goodness for that, especially during times when we don’t have anyone to talk to or lean on. We know that our loving Father’s arms are open wide for us to draw into and lean on him.

The Lord wants your anxiety. He doesn’t want you to carry it. Peace for you is very important to the Lord. As you rise each day, remember that as the day is teaming with busyness, God is with you.

 Whatever trouble comes, you can handle it. What you can’t manage, you know you can layout, cast, throw, give up and release to the Lord. 

You have a God that cares for you. A Father that loves you. There is nothing too hard for Him to handle in your day, your life, your family, or your past. 

Let\’s Pray:

Lord, I thank you for caring for me, and because of that care, I can give you all of my fears and anxieties. I release them today to you and trust that you can handle anything that comes. Amen.

  1. I’m so thankful God cares for us in the deep places that only He can touch, Paula. And I’m thankful for natural hands that serve us when we find ourselves needing care and attention. My husband had eye surgery, my son had his four wisdom teeth removed and my daughter had a medical procedure all in the same week. It was baptism by fire to have three patients at once! Yet, the Lord gave grace and all are making progress in their journey of healing.

    1. Amen Lisa. I pray they are doing well.

  2. I’m relearning the importance of prayer both individually and by those who intercede on our behalf. I’m so glad that we can cast all our cares on the one who cares.
    Thanks for this needed encouragement (and the brevity of your post).

    1. Your most welcome Nylse. I agree. Amen & Amen.

  3. “The Lord wants your anxiety”. I love this Paula. I know this but to see the words here in black and white make such an impact. Loved ones I know really suffer and need to see this. Thank you!

    1. Your most welcome Jan. I agree, I know this too, but sometimes my anxiety gets ahead of me and I have to put it in check pretty quick.

  4. Paula, I definitely had some cares that I needed to cast on Him over the last day or so … I’m so thankful He hears and sees and invites us to release our troubles into His loving hands. Hugs, friend.

  5. Anxious moments come to us all. I am so grateful that as I speak His name, He brings a peace and calm to my heart and mind. And I don’t say that lightly, as He got me through today 🙂 Thank you, Paula, for bringing an encouraging word!

    1. Your most welcome Joanne. Amen for sure.
