Casting Cares

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

I’m trying hard to cast them, but they circle back around
They fasten themselves to me, and they drag me to the ground.

The overwhelming feelings in my heart, the hurt and pain,
They tap me on the shoulder to remind me they remain.

I’m trying hard to let go, to be still, yet stay engaged.
They whisper words of doubt to me, and try to keep me caged.

The thoughts that I am failing, that I’m lost and on my own,
They plant themselves inside my head and won’t leave me alone.

I’m trying to believe it, that it’s true, He cares for me
They hijack at my weakest point, say it could never be.

The fears that I have missed out on the best part of my life
They won’t be cast, they’re being flung, at the feet of Jesus Christ.

What do you have to fling at the feet of Jesus today?

    The last verse reminds me of one of my favorite verses:
    “They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
    they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations. -“Isaiah 61:4
