Casting My Cares on Him

"I will cast my cares on You the Almighty,
I will cast my cares on You cause You're Good,
I will cast my cares on You cause You love me, You love me.
All, All, All,  because You love me."
 _ "Cast My Cares" by Tim Timmons_

Today, I am definitely feeling confident in who God is and where He is leading me. Although I am a pastor's wife, that doesn't mean I am always sure of God's plans for my life.  I have days where I think, "God this is not a good plan... what are You thinking?!" It's funny to look back on those times and think that God was probably kind of of laughing at me saying, "Really Leah? You're going to ask ME if this is a good idea?!  My child, if only you could see the bigger picture." I love when He gives me glimpses of His bigger plan.

My husband, Jared, described it perfectly to someone the other day. He told a couple at our church that we're going through a season where God reveals something that we want to to jump on right away, but God says "Wait, there's more."

How about that? "Wait, there's more."

God's like the ultimate game show host who always has more for you. Even in the darkest hours, He has good things for you. All He asks is for you to "cast your cares on Him". That's all. I wish the simplicity of that request would slap me on the forehead like those V8 commercials when I feel like I have no clue what to do.

Today, I feel at peace. Sure, it probably has something to do with the new job I'm starting on the 22nd. But I also think it has something to do with the battle we are fighting to win Elkhart for Christ. "My God is so big and so strong and so mighty, there's nothing my God cannot do." That's a verse from a song we learned at Sports Camp and it's stuck with me. The truth in it is so powerful. I love singing and dancing to it. Just like a child.

So let me ask you this, what words are sticking with you?

Are they truths of goodness, or lies of despair? 

Which one are you going to let linger? I would challenge you to grab old of His truth and don't let go.
