On My Mirror

As a reminder to myself I have this on my mirror. It helps me remember who is really in charge of my life!

Whatever it is that presses you, go tell the Father;
put the whole matter over into His hand,
and so shall you be freed from
that dividing, perplexing care that the world is full of.
When you are either to do or suffer anything,
when you are about any purpose or business,
go tell God of it,
and acquaint Him with it;
yes, burden Him with it.
Then you will have put the concerns and cares of the matter behind you.
From that point forward,
exercise quiet, sweet, diligence in your work,
recognizing your dependence on Him to carry the matter for you.
Roll your cares, and yourself with them, as one burden, all on your God.
--paraphrase of quote from Streams in the Desert, Nov. 11 R. Leighton

How simple is that to do? I keep practicing and the Pandemic has certainly challenged me in this respect. How are you doing with “rolling your cares and yourself with them, as one burden, all on your God”?

Sunshiny days seem to make it easier. A serious challenge and hopefully freeing!

I do recognize my dependence upon God to carry all matters for me. When my hands or wrists begin aching with arthritis, I will try to remember that He will carry all matters for me. If only I will let go!

Casting all your care on Him, because He cares about you.

1 Peter 5:7 (HCSB)
