The Perfect Cast

"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7

I had to meet with the Lord several times this morning. My daughter, Wendy, and my grandson, Elisha, just left for a 350+ mile trip to visit family for a week. I was worried—okay, I am worried! My mother was the Queen of Worry and I used to tease her about it all the time. (Oh, I hate the moment when you realize you are turning into your mother!) However, in this case, Mom's weakness could be sin and I don't want to endulge my own sinful nature.

When Wendy was born and we held her the first time, we bowed our heads and gave her back to the Lord. Our Father knows so much better than we do. Even after being saved for more than 40 years, I have to daily remind myself that He cares for me and He will carry my cares.

I just need to cast.
