“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
1 Peter 5:7
There always seems to be a hymn during different times in my life that sticks with me and constantly go through my mind. This has been my hymn this month. :) Isn’t its message so true, sweet, and simple yet we so often forget. “What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a Privilege to carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!” I am clinging to that today and pray that you are blessed by this truth too. :)
Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer.
Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you; you will find a solace there.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
