I once heard Joyce Meyer say that her husband Dave says, "Do what you can, then cast your care." In other words, there are things that are our responsibility to take care of, and things we just have to trust God with. For example, I am responsible, with God's help, to be the wife, mama and nana that He would have me to be. But when it comes to changing my husband or children, I've got to cast all of that care onto God's shoulders instead of trying to fix them myself.
And did you also notice the words "once and for all"? How often have I cast my care on God, then picked it right back up? Too often! To help me remember the "once and for all" sometimes I write down what I'm casting onto Him,then physically put it down somewhere, and refuse to pick it up. (For the rest of this post join me on Sunday, Jan. 17th, at Woman to Woman Ministries for some Sunday Soul Food AND A FREE DOWNLOADABLE PRINT to help you to remember to cast your care on God.)
