For the weary, broken-hearted, heavy laden and depressed: I say to you – cast your cares on me.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
Breathe it out sweet child – all that tense fear and emotion that ensnares your beautiful soul. Let that breath out, expel all the hard routines of life that press on your spirit and soul.
You clench your fists and worry in vain, sweet one. For it is not you who controls your destiny, I am the Master of your eternity sea; and, it is my choice to take on your burdens – both light and small.
Trust me, and hand over that backpack of stones. Remember, I chose to take the nails for you and have called you to be a light. You are needed on this terrain to walk uninhibited and urgently.
Focus on the goodness of my Word and breathe in that mercy. Let this mercy fill the chambers of your lungs. Inhale and exhale the sweet honey of my security.
The evil one wants to hold that heart captive and burden it with apprehension and fear. I am with you child –you lose sight of that truth at times; but, I am ever-present – always.
Day to day earthly chores, routines and schedules press against you and you lose hope.; but, I am in the everyday steps you take. I am with you when you wipe that nose of that crying toddler, when you work late at night on a project for your job, when you feel like your world is crashing in on you – I am there saying – ‘give me that burden, sweet one.’
Trust. Seek. Follow.
Look for me in the small – for it is my strength that sustains you in all situations.
There is no more blessed way of living, than the life of faith based upon a covenant-keeping God – to know that we have no care, for He cares for us; that we need have no fear, except to fear Him; that we need have no troubles, because we have cast our burdens upon the Lord, and are conscience that He will sustain us. – Charles Spurgeon
