Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
—1 Peter 5:7
Yesterday, there was a terrible tragedy about an hour’s drive from my home.
People all over the world are talking about it.
Because of our technological capabilities, people all over the world can learn of breaking news in moments.
While being informed is a good thing, it can sometimes be overwhelming, as well.
When I check the news headlines, I get an overview of all the major occurrences across the globe.
Politics, science, war.
Health, sports, natural disasters.
Weather, entertainment, economics.
When horrific things happen–like yesterday’s tragedy–it’s too great to comprehend.
There is so much to take in.
It’s overwhelming for me.
And what about those who are directly affected?
I can only imagine their consuming emotion.
What is there to do?
1 Peter 5:7 reads, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.“
God is greater than anything we could ever envision.
When we are anxious and troubled, distraught and undone, we can cast our emotions on Him and look to Him to comfort and to heal.
