Carefree in His Care

8 Jan

Look at the ravens, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, carefree in the care of God. And you count far more.  Luke 12:24 Msg.

Today Mike and I went to the pool at my school and as we swam swallows dipped into the pool for drink.  It was delightful.  They swooped down like bullets and grabbed sips on the fly.  They were carefree in the care of God.

Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.  1 Peter 5:7 Msg.

The King James version of 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”   We should throw our cares–our anxieties and distractions–on Him, our God who is powerful enough to DO something about them.  Instead, we’re often like little kids who insist on being “all grown up” and carrying our own burdens rather than giving them to the Burden-bearer.

Do you have any to cast His way today?
