I am the worst at weighing myself down with responsibilities that are not my own. I always try to fix other people’s problems. I am always trying, even though I am not good at it at all and I am continuously wearing myself out doing so. Then as I am standing there, all upset and frustrated, wondering now what, I am reminded that it wasn’t my problem to start with. How do I break that cycle of trying to carry something that isn’t mine?
That’s when I am reminded ever so gently that we are to give ALL our anxieties to our Heavenly Father. Everything that concerns us, no matter what it is, whether or not, it is our responsibility, we are to give it to Him.
So as we start out this brand new day, in this brand new year, make a conscious choice to give ALL your concerns, all your anxieties to God, and see what a big difference it makes.
1 Peter 5:7 “casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.” (ESV)
