casting cares

1 pierre 5:6-7
“humiliez-vous donc sous la puisante main de Dieu, afin qu’Il vous eleve en temps voulu. dechargez-vous sure lui de tous vos soucis, car Il prend soin de vous.”

1 peter 5:6-7
“humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. cast all you anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

the greek for cast is “to hurl” which is pretty strong. how often do we cast our cares on God? i tend to hand them over gingerly. i think maybe i’m afraid to hurl them for fear of not being able to pick them back up later. like i’m comfortable with my cares. i want them close by sometimes because i’ve come to know them so well. but gosh, it’s heavy at times. and surely God can care for them better than i. and surely there are better things for me to get cozy with.

practice casting.
