Read an Excerpt
Anxiety Cast all your anxiety upon him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7. God, You are big enough to hold the world in Your hands and loving enough to care about every little detail in our lives. When we’re anxious, bring peace.When we’re afraid, give courage. When we’re unsure, provide confidence. Right now I’m worried about __________. I release this to You and entrust myself to Your love. Amen. I stand at the edge of a pond, ripples across the waters mirroring those of my unsettled heart. I pick up a rock the size of my palm and place it in my hand, running my fingers across the surface worn smooth by time and troubles. I pull my elbow back as if I’m a human slingshot and release the stone. It flies over the midnight blue surface before skipping once, twice, and disappearing from view. I dust the dirt of it off my hands. To “cast” our cares means more than just a tentative letting go—it’s a hurling, tossing, complete surrender. This is the offer of God: to let Him take our anxieties as the lake takes the stone, fully and completely. There is enough room for one care or a thousand. We can let them all sink beneath the surface of His endlessly deep love.
