Let Go and Let God Carry Your Cares – July 6 Inspiration

Let go and let God carry your cares, because He cares for you. Sometimes this is easier said than done. We tend to want to hold onto 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 we 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 Wednesday 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 with the weight of grief due to our family tragedy, 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. Sometimes it’s the fact that we keep holding on that keeps us from being free from our doubts, worries, and emotions! When in fact we just really have to let go and let God. It’s important to stop trying to control things that you simply cannot control.

  2. I like this post, I was inspired by your thoughts. It is very important that we hold on to God.

  3. God is good all the time, that is doubtless! I like this post, very inspiring and moving.

  4. Nope not really. I have an issue that I’m working with my coach on about letting go especially the things that upset me especially when it comes to the idiotic things my family does. Sigh. But this was a great read on reflecting on the thing I don’t let go thanks

  5. Worrying just doesn’t help. Praying does. That’s how I’ve gotten through the hard places in life. That’s how I’m getting through the political drama in my country. God is in control of history. I need to do what I can, and leave the rest to Him.

  6. Letting go is probably one of the hardest things for me to do. I know it is necessary in order for me to grow in my spiritual walk, but it’s tough :/

  7. I seem to try to take it all on myself at first, but then I realize how overwhelming it is. That’s when I let go, and I instantly feel better.

  8. I am so sorry to hear about the tragedy in your family. My prayers will be with you! I needed to read this inspirational quote you shared today, I am also dealing with quite a bit and I have the tendency to want to carry all my burdens myself and I end up stressing myself out and worrying way too much, when I should just give all my troubles up to God. Thank you for sharing this and lifting my spirits this morning!

  9. Amen. He is my strenght, he’s all we need to keep fighting

  10. God is always good and He do great than your expectations.

  11. This reminds me of the ‘Footprints’ quote. When we let go, God will carry us!

  12. This is perfect timing for me to read. God works well like that. Thanks for the encouragement:).

  13. I have a better time letting go and letting God on big things and not small things. Isn’t that weird? Great post thanks for sharing the Joyce Meyer quote

  14. Such an uplifting read. The very words I am needing today. Thank you. God indeed works in mysterious ways. Ive been finding some comfort and reading your blog post gave me that comfort.

  15. It’s so hard to let go especially when it’s so important to you

  16. This kind of faith carries people through difficult times. To me, it would be exceedingly difficult to let go. I do have control freak tendencies, which, intellectually, I know is ridiculous.

  17. What a lovely post indeed, I was brought up to always bring everything to God and leave it in his grace. He has never let me down and I trust him completely
