“A state of negative expectation. Feeling overwhelmed by worry. Persistent fear.” Chances are, you can relate. Because anxiety is real. But so is God’s response to your anxious heart.
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
God doesn’t judge you or push you away when you’re feeling anxious. He doesn’t heap shame on you for not being “strong enough.” He simply reminds you of His care and invites you to bring your anxious thoughts to Him.
Have you done that yet today? Have you been honest about the worry you’re carrying and acknowledged that it’s too much for you? That you need Him?
When you do, the load gets a little lighter. Because He’s carrying you. Your heart senses the love of your Father. And faith re-enters the picture.
Jesus cares about you. And your anxious thoughts. You can trust Him with everything that you’re carrying. – Sandi
