Cast Your Cares Because He Cares for You – March 16 Inspiration

Cast your cares because He cares for you. Sometimes this is easier said than done. We tend to want to hang on to our “cares” and problems, perhaps feeling like if we let go, we are not in control. But I think that’s the point: we need to recognize when we’re struggling and overwhelmed, we really are NOT in control and need to allow God to take the reins, because He truly cares for us and knows best how to resolve our problems. It really is NOT our “job” to worry!

Here is your midweek inspiration…

“Do you know God wants to take care of you?

It’s true. He wants you to give Him

all your cares, your problems, your failures–

and in exchange, He will give you beauty.

Many people want God to take care of them,

but they continue worrying

or trying to figure out the answers

to their problems instead of waiting

for His direction.

It’s a great privilege to be cared for

by the King of kings,

so give up your worries and concerns to Him

and enjoy His protection,

stability, and fullness of joy.”

–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”

My reflections:

I just really needed to read this today! I was feeling especially overwhelmed and discouraged, and then I read this devotional! It was like a personal word from God!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you find it easy or difficult to “let go and let God” be in control?

Have you ever experienced the peace that comes from casting your cares on God instead of trying to carry them yourself?

  1. I’ve always had problems letting things go. I tend to bottle everything up and let it eat at me. I know it isn’t healthy, but it just can’t let go sometimes. On the occasions that I’ve given it over to God, I’ve found complete peace in doing so.

  2. Thanks for the midweek inspiration! 🙂

  3. i think it is hard to cast our cares on the Lord because it is human nature to take care of things ourself. but when i am feeling overwhelmed i always pray and put things in Gods hands

  4. I love this, it’s definitely challenging to let go of some things in lie, especially if we once held it so dear. But things change and we sometimes have to let go even if we’re not yet ready to.

  5. Very inspirational Karen. Thanks so much for sharing.

  6. I never let go of anything. I am the only one in control of what happens in my life.

  7. This is such a great reminder! I’m generally pretty good at letting go but there are a few areas I struggle with. I’m working on it though.

  8. Wise words and probably what I needed to hear today, Thank you!

  9. I use conversations with friends to help me deal with issues. I also follow other paths.

  10. There’s a thin line between trying to control things and letting go. Many times you’re not sure when to stop.

    Say for a goal that I have, I usually do my best with everything that stays in my power, and then I get busy doing something else. Many times that not things then get resolved by themselves!

  11. Thanks for the terrific Inspiration. I try to end each day thinking of all the blessings i have on my life.

  12. Very inspiring! It is hard but whenever i did let go, made me feel much better.

  13. I have my struggles with this myself. Not in believing that he cares for me, but believing that I’m worth that. Especially with major mistakes.

  14. Letting go can be hard at first…but its neccessary sometimes. We hold onto memories thats why its hard to let go because we replay good time but if the present is hurtul and not going in a good direction let go.
