Leaving your Worries and Cares with God!

1 Peter 5:5-7 (New Living Translation)

5 In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favors the humble." 6. So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. 7. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

I know a lot about giving my worries and cares to the Lord, but I sure have a lot to learn about leaving them there! Why do I go back and get them? I couldn't do anything about them in the first place, and yet when something is going wrong or I don't see anything happening, there I am again, worrying and fretting over something that is entirely out of my hands. Being humble has something to do with it according to this scripture. Maybe it is those proud, impatient people (like me sometimes) that really doesn't believe God would do what He said. How many ways and how many times does our Lord have to reassure us of His mercy and goodness? Isn't it wonderful that He is so patient with us, that He loves us so much and that He is always there just waiting for us to ask Him to take all those things we are burdened with? We will never be able to understand just how much He loves us and that nothing will ever separate His love from us! I don't know about you but this is exciting to me, as well as deeply comforting. So why should we worry? lets really give it all to Him, and see what happens! He said He would lift us up at the right time. I believe Him, how about you?
