BIBLE MEDITATION:
"Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you"
(Psalm 55:22 NKJV)

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
When worry comes knocking on your door, stop it on the doorstep or it will move in and take up residence.

'Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you' (1 Peter 5:7 NIV). God cares about the things that worry you and prey upon your thoughts. He cares about them more than you do. Not one nagging, aching, worrisome, gut-wrenching, bloodpressure- raising thought escapes His notice. Because 'you are his personal concern', He watches over you day and night.

What qualifies as a worry?

Anything that robs you of joy, anything you can't change, anything you're not responsible for, anything you're unable to control, anything that torments you, anything that keeps you awake when you should be asleep. All of that 'stuff' needs to be transferred from your worry list to your prayer list. The Bible says, 'Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace. '
(Philippians 4:6-7 NLT).

Give each worry, one by one, to God. The more you practice doing this, the more exciting your walk with Him will become. You'll be amazed at how easily He handles things that overwhelm you. Remind yourself that He's able to handle it, willing to handle it, and waiting for you to give it to Him.

'Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.' Those who live worry free are those who keep casting their burdens on the Lord until it becomes as natural to them as breathing! It's time to STOP worrying about it and let Jesus work it out!

Jesus can work it out (repeat)

That problem that I had (I had)

I just couldn't seem to solve (to solve)

I tried and I tried (I tried) Kept gettin' deeper involved (involved)

I turned it over to Jesus (Jesus)

And I stopped worryin' about it (about it) I turned it over to the Lord and He worked it out (oh yeah)

Jesus can work it out!
