This week has been an anxious one. Is it okay to be honest with you about that?

I know there are 100 different things I can do to deal with that anxiety, but one reigns above all others.

1 Peter 5:7 says that I can give all my worries and cares to God.


One reason only: because He cares for me and you.

So, if you are in that same place, let’s do it together.

Let’s hold up our anxious thoughts, our burdens, and GIVE them to Him.

Close your eyes. He knows what you need before you even ask (Matthew 6:8). Offer them up.

Yes, you’ll do what you can do, but beyond that — that place where worry and anxiety take place — we exchange it for trust that God knows the plan He has for our lives. That He’s Sovereign. That if He promises to take that burden, that it lightens as it shifts from our shoulders to His. We’ll follow His lead. We’ll listen for His gentle admonition or encouragement.

But the burden isn’t ours to carry one more moment.

What have you been carrying? How can I pray with you today?
