Not Too Big for God

DSCN0963 too big

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Do you have a problem you are struggling with right now?  If so, I encourage you to take it to God in prayer.  Give whatever is worrying you or keeping you awake at night over to Him and as the verse above promises, you will find peace.  No problem or worry is too big for God, He can handle anything!

I tend to be a worrier, but I find when I take my concerns to God, they somehow seem smaller and more manageable and I can find peace, despite what might be going on in my life.  Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep, I pray and it allows me to relax, let go of my worries and drift back to sleep.  It seems like such a simple insomnia solution, but it is a very powerful one!

How about you?  Do you have a favorite verse?  If you have one that helps you, please share it in the comments.




Give Your Worries to God

This past Sunday in church we sang a song that I hadn’t sang in a  long time. It is called “The Cares Song.” The words go like this:

I cast all my cares upon You
I lay all of my burdens down at your feet
And anytime, that I don’t know
What to do
I will cast all my cares upon You

How many times do we just feel burdened down with the tasks of life and think we have to carry it all by ourselves. I think it so important to just remember that is what God is there for…to lay our burdens down.

Here is a rendition I found I YouTube. Listen, absorb the words, feel the healing and let go of your cares.
