Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 12.1.16

Scripture


casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. 

1 PETER‬ ‭5‬:‭7‬ AMP

Pray

Father I’m turning this all over to You. I’ve been trying to handle this on my own, and it’s clear that I don’t have a clue what I’m doing. My hard-headedness keeps me anxious, worried, and concerned–and that’s just foolish Father. So I’m going to start right now, this very moment, to turn my cares over to You. I’m going to pull back on my worrying and press forward with my praying. Strengthen me Father. You know me and You know this isn’t going to be easy for me, but I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. So I’m letting go, getting out of Your way, and letting You do what You do best. I love You Father. Thank You for loving me.

Reflection

Aren’t you tired of this rat race? This hamster wheel you keep spinning on? Jump out. Jump off. Take that pile of nonsense and push it towards God. Take your cares and turn them over to God. Anxiety attacks, heart attacks, high blood pressure, migraines, body aches, sleep deprivation, tension headaches, clinched jaws, and emotional roller coasters—none of those things are natural, and we can relieve ourselves from this misery. Take those anxieties, worries, and concerns, and turn them over to God. I know it’s not easy, we think “I’ve got this”, when we know deep down inside that we don’t have a clue what to do. But we do know where to go–directly to God–so let’s stop being foolish, stubborn, and doubtful. Start moving those piles of stress off of your shoulders and let God take care of you.

If you doubt He can handle the job, then keep doing what you’ve been doing–and keep ending up with the same results. It’s your choice.
