Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

—1 Peter 5:7

It was peaceful.

The sun was fading as evening shadows approached.

I sat alone on the bench beside the lake.

Birds paddled across in the water in front of me.

A chilly March wind blew through my long sweater.

The trees, now barren looking, would soon answer God’s call to burst into new green leaves with the arrival of spring.



I am not strong enough to bear them.

I was not meant to.

Only Jesus can rescue me from all that threatens


in my heart.
