29. God Cares About You
Verse Of The Day: May 29
1 Peter 5:7 NLT
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”
Worry creates a heaviness in your soul. You can lose your mind to anxiety. It's the slippery slope down to depression. Seeing a health care professional can be very helpful. Just talking to someone can make a difference.
A lot of women talk to their hair dresser and men would be surprised how much this helps them get a load off their mind. Friends talking to friends you can trust can ease the pain. It can help with despair. No wonder one of the greatest punishments is solitary confinement, where you are cut off from all human contact.
People can be in a crowd of people and still feel like they are all alone. The christian should technically never feel alone, because God is ever present. What's more, God understands your worries and wants to carry them for you.
This is why the bible says to give your worries to God. But how do you give worry to God? The same way you give it to any person. You talk about it with Him and leave it with Him to help fix it. Obviously this takes some trust because we are used to telling people, who do very little about our situations, and then find ourselves telling more people about it.
God cares more about you than any other person could ever care about you. Talking to God about anything that worries you is the best thing you can do to clear your mind and create some balance.
How often do I talk to God about what I'm worried about?
God, help me to come to You first with the things that concern me. There is nobody that cares for me like You do. I trust You to take care of me and sort out the things that bother me. Amen.
