“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”1 Peter 5:7 NIV
Have you ever been around someone who isn’t really interested in communicating, they just want to talk? You can tell they didn’t really hear what you had to say. They were just waiting for you to take a breath so they could start talking. I use to think these people were rude and inconsiderate but now I realize that most of these people are just excited about their ideas. They don’t mean to devalue you. They are just want to share their thoughts. There’s nothing wrong with that but it can leave you feeling even more alone than when you first started the conversation. That makes it even more amazing when you find someone who slows down and thoughtfully listens… someone who really cares. That’s what I love about the promise in God’s Word above. It says you can take all your conversation and share it with God because He truly cares. He’s not trying to hurry you along or quickly excuse your issues. He’s attentive and listening. So, talk. Say everything on your heart. His ear is always open to you. He won’t criticize your thoughts, feelings, off-topic ramblings. He’s ready to hear it all.
- I will talk to God without fear.
- I will tell Him everything on mind.
- I will not allow myself to keep my anxiety. I will give it all to Jesus continually.
“Today, I give, over and over again, my fears and worries to you. I know you care for me.”
