Scripture Sunday

Updating my Scripture of the week tonight. Happily I can say that last weeks verse has been applied time and time again over the course of the last week, which is EXACTLY what the goal for the weekly scripture is…so that's good news! 2 full weeks into the year, and 2 new verses I have in my arsenal. 

This weeks scripture somewhat coincides with last weeks, which is pretty neat. It really makes me feel like God is speaking through these scriptures, trying to help me understand this concept, as he presents it over and over. 

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
1 Peter 5:7

Last week we honed in on his presence going with us, and bringing peace. This week the focus is on the need to give your worries to him. 

One point to consider: There is a reason that this verse doesn't say "SHARE" all your anxiety with him.  Note the word "Cast.

Merriam- Webster Defines Cast:
Cast- VERB- \'Kast\
: to throw or move (something) in a forceful way
: to throw (a fishing line, hook, etc.) into the water by using a fishing pole
: to send or direct (something) in the direction of someone or something

Throw, Send, Direct…make sure when you cast your worries on him, that you are ridding yourself of your concerns in such a manner that you can't retrieve them. He doesn't want to share in your fear, he wants it transferred from your back to his own. What an awesome God we serve!

Have a good week!!

…and that my Dear, was all she wrote...
