Cast your cares
on the LORD
and He will
sustain you;
He will never
let the
righteous fall.

Psalm 55:22

Burdens come in a variety of emotional, spiritual,
and physical forms, but they all feel heavy and
cause weariness. Persistent problems and trials
drain our vitality and threaten to overwhelm us.

Every circumstance in life is lovingly sifted
through the Lord's fingers before reaching us.
From His perspective, those things which are too
heavy for us are opportunities for dependence on
Him. God never intends for any of us to carry
a burden without Him. He says to give it to Him
and promises to sustain us.

Casting your cares upon God means releasing them
fully into His control. The freedom Christ offers
will release you from the burden's oppressive weight.
He'll sustain you with His peace as you trust Him.

  1. Susie,

    I just read this at the most perfect moment. I can't even tell you. There are no words to how much that spoke to me, as today is a VERY hard day for me. Thank you for sharing these. They get me through.

  2. Hard to remember sometimes that everything is in His hands. Thanks for the reminder.
