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.
