1-Peter-5-7

I’ve spent quite a bit of time this week crying out to the Lord for others. This life is so hard, and my heart gets heavy at the thought of people I love in pain. 

And then, there are the people I don’t know, but hear about through social media who are suffering from every kind of affliction possible in this earth.

It’s enough to bring you to your knees, and make you question the existence of a loving God.

In my experience though, the hardest times that I’ve walked through have brought me to a greater faith.

Each time that I didn’t know what was going to happen next, anxiety my companion, The Lord showed up in ways that could not be explained by  my human understanding.

Times when I should have needed pills to cope, I was instead given peace.

When my heart was to run away, my feet were steadied to stay the course.

These experiences, stitched together, have strengthened my ability to trust that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and cares for me, and takes on my pain so that I don’t crumble in under it’s weight.

He knew we would have those days when we were anxious about all that we have to face in life, so The Lord left us with an invitation to cast it on Him.

Even if we’re unsure, it can’t hurt to try right?

Please feel free to share your burdens here – I’m always happy to pray for you.

Peace & Love,

Carrie
