Casting Your Cares On Him

Blank Facebook Post (4)

The psalmist wrote, “Be still, and know that I am God” (46:10).  Paul exhorted the Philippians to “be anxious for nothing” (Phil 4:6). And Peter instructed his readers to cast all their cares on God (1 Peter 5:7).

I confess that for too long I have tried to work out my own problems and carry my own cares in my own self-strength, but I thank You Father-God that You care so much for me that I can cast all the burdens and hurts and disappointments and worries that seem to be flooding my life today, upon You – in the sure knowledge that you have promised to carry them. I admit I am weak, but I praise You that I can draw on Your amazing strength today and in the days that lie ahead, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

 

 

Author: Cheryl Cooper Downum

My name is Cheryl Cooper Downum, I have been a survivor of childhood sexual and a victim of a stalker and sexual assault at 15. I endured a painful divorce in 2015. As I’ve walked this journey, I’ve found myself growing closer to Jesus. My heart is now infused with empathy for others that find themselves in this place. And, God has given me a story, a message of hope to share. A message birthed in my brokenness that brought forth a sweet-surrendered dependence on God’s unconditional acceptance and love. The reason I am writing this blog is; I have found in my life that the Lord often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad to our deepest calling. My desire is to encourage His children to seek a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that as you read my blog, you will feel inspired and encouraged. Thank you for visiting! God Bless! The Lord has also blessed me abundantly with 3 beautiful grown and married adult children.
