What do I do when life feels overwhelming and out of control? How about stop trying to play Atlas, and start crying out, “Abba, Father.” It’s what a child does. And the Father loves for us to come to him in our need.
So let’s review:
1. I can’t bear the weight of the world, or even my own problems.
2. Jesus can.
3. So, cast your anxiety on him (1 Peter 5:7). The effort is in the casting— casting the burden off of self and onto him, whether sin or circumstance.
Will you do the hard work of casting with me today?
