The title alone may bring a few ideas to mind. Perhaps we’re talking about the popular hit movie from the year 2000, staring Tom Hanks. Maybe we have our technological hat on and we’re streaming a video from our mobile device to our smart TV. Or we prefer a simpler time and envision sitting out on a lake during a warm afternoon, patiently waiting for a slight tug on our reel.
Instead, I mean casting away your cares, fears, worries, anxieties, troubles – you name it, it’s gone!
For the past few weeks….
I’ve been stressed out.
I’ve been worried.
I’ve felt anxious.
My patience was worn and my frustration would easily show. Everything was upsetting, no matter how small or insignificant it truly was. I knew something wasn’t right within myself.
Sure, I made certain to read the Bible at the start of every day. Okay, well most days. Some days got ahead of me so fast, that if I didn’t hit the ground running, I would be so far behind. Or so I thought.
I couldn’t have been more wrong. The one thing I skipped for “lack of time” was the one thing I needed most.
I needed to find my balance and restore my inner peace.
I needed God.
So if you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, anxious, stressed out or worried, always remember that God is right there for you and knows all that you need.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you!
