Spiritual Care

IMG_2036Today has been difficult.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

– 1 Peter 5: 7

Last month, one of my posts was about Pastor Dale praying for me after a church service. I had asked him to pray about my depression as I was very unsettled during the entire service. We prayed for healing and also talked about God’s plan…how perhaps, by sharing the struggles on my walk of faith, I could possibly help other people.

On our walk of faith, we will have the opportunity to talk with people who have difficult days. As I talked with God this afternoon, I was guided to this verse:

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

God first drew my attention to the second word: all. God isn’t saying to bring just some of our anxiety or just some of our depression, He welcomes us to bring it all before Him.

The reason for this is so beautiful: “because he cares for you.” 

My prayer for us is to remember this verse and to share God’s awesome love.

    “My children, come to Me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will give you rest.” –Jesus (Mt. 11:28) (paraphrased)
    It really helps to know we’re not alone. Thanks, Rick.

  3. Last Sunday night we heard a teaching about allowing Jesus to carry us, as the Shepherd would carry His one lost sheep after He found it. My prayer is that you can allow yourself to be carried this week by The ONE Who LOVES YOU More than He loved His own life. Breathe Him in tonight!
