Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7

Dear Jesus,

I’m often surprised and overcome with feelings of anxiety and worry.  Sometimes I don’t know what to do with all my concerns about what’s going on in my life and the lives of the people I love.  But you tell me to give my worries to you because you care for me.  So here they are, every one of them.  You get to be God today.  I will just be a little person who knows so little but trusts a whole lot.  You have fixed my biggest problem.  I’m a sinner who needs forgiveness or I will most certainly be lost forever.  You forgive me of everything.  I will live forever even though I die.  You will work everything out for my good, even the problems I create.  I cannot lose since you are the God who cares for me.  So, worrying is worthless.  Help me to keep this holy thought all day today.

Amen

There will always be things that scare us.  Just the same, God will always be the place to put our fears.
