Reducing Anxiety by Casting Your Cares on God

Reduce anxiety by casting your cares on God. Anxiety is rampant today, which is not surprising in this world of constant turmoil and continuous bad news blasted at us from numerous sources. It’s essential to find a way to manage anxiety in a healthy manner. Doing so can improve our overall well-being, along with increasing our ability to be more productive when we’re not distracted or weighed down with anxiety and worry.

Onto today’s inspiration…

“Lord, thank You

that I can give myself up to be led by You…

I can go forth praising and at rest,

letting you manage me and my day.

Thank You that I can throw

the whole weight of my anxieties on You,

for I am Your personal concern.”

–Ruth Myers in “31 Days of Praise”

My reflections:

 

I’ve mentioned before that this is one of my favorite day’s devotions in this particular devotional book. It’s nice to know God can help me manage my time if I let Him, and that I can cast my cares and anxieties on Him, because He can handle them better than I can!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

 

Have you ever considered relying on God for time management and anxiety reduction?

 

Do you have other strategies that help you relax, but also stay on task?

  1. Can’t tell you how much I love this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I came across your blog today and in a different way, I am also keeping alive the love of the Word and emphasis in getting it out to others – like my dad did. Love your premise and also this message that we should cast our cares to God. It’s the only way! Thanks!

  3. I read Ruth Myers’ 31 Days of Praise years ago in a women’s Bible study. Loved it! I gave away several copies as gifts it was so good. I may have to go dig my copy out of my bookshelf and re-read it!

  4. Every day I cast myself and my mind heart and spirit to Him who gave me life..

  5. As a “Martha” Type A, I really have to work at cast my cares. I want to do everything for God. Regular times of prayer meant to keep the conversation open with Him works better than anything else.
