1 Peter 5:7

Me at Walmart...NO JOKE.:

 Any ladies who are menopausal or on hormone blockers relate to this one? Me too!

I love to laugh and the guy in this link just cracked me up:

Adding to the my second 1000 Gift gratefulness list( http://www.aholyexperience.com/  ) :

7. Time spent in 1 Pet 5:7 this morning:

7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].(AMP) 

7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.(NLT)

7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (KJV)

7. Cast all your care on Him because He cares for you. (NIV)

Last week Wade was sharing with me how Mike loves 1 Peter 5:7 “because of the because” (or “for” in some translations)”.  The FULL weight of EVERYTHING that is stressing me, worrying me, causing me anxious thoughts–every bit of it can be cast–completely let go of and thrown–on God Himself.  Cancer is simply too much for me, way too heavy of a burden for me to carry and I can’t handle it myself and I don’t want to.  The thing is, I don’t have to and God doesn’t want me to either so why do I keep taking back this mess back after I give it to Him? I gotta knock that part off.  Instead,  His plan is for me to have full, unwavering confidence in this One that I can unload all my burdens on BECAUSE He cares for and about me.  The Lord is genuinely concerned about my welfare.  His desire is to sustain me with Himself.  His heart is for me and with me.I can cast then rest and repeat as needed.

8. Seeing old friends last night and sitting next to Jean: I want to be like her if the Lord lets me live to 95 too…sweet, loves God above all else, a blessing to be with, not complaining, content, interested in others.  Please help me not to be a grouchy self centered crab, Lord.  Not now, not when I’m old.

9. A colorful bouquet from John and my BD orchid from Sue gracing my kitchen island: lovely gifts from people I love dearly.  I’m so glad that God thought up flowers. They bring me so much enjoyment.

10. Jenny passed along one of my favorite poems to me during my first round of cancer. It’s  been in my mind a lot lately:

Sometimes on the Rock I tremble

Faint of heart and weak of knee

But the Steadfast rock of Ages

Never trembles under me.

 

11. I love this song: “Your Hands”

12. Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. ~Emory Austin

Gratefully His,

Paula
