Cast My Cares

Twelve years ago I was given five years to live due to an incurable cancer living inside me. I surely didn’t see that one coming, yet in a crazy way I’m so grateful for the gift of perspective that this journey has afforded me. Because I still walk with cancer, my fears and worries are confronted daily with these questions:

Is God, God or is he not?

Is God good or is he not?

So then what’s my response to Him? If He is both of these things then what’s my posture look like in the midst of my day? Do I lean into Him or not? It’s becoming pretty simple in theory. “For me to live is Jesus and to die is gain” (Phil 1:21), so then “cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you!” (1 Peter 5:7)

Think about this in your life. What are you worrying about today? What are the fears that are paralyzing you today? Take a second or two and think about this…

If He is God and you’re not and He is good, then let’s practice casting our cares on Him today. To cast is to transfer weight to someone or something else. So let them go as if Jesus cares for you today, knows what’s best for you and everyone involved, and remember that Jesus is always at work!

Cast My Cares“Cast My Cares”

In the middle of the night
When worry finds me
In the middle of the fight
When strength is gone
In the middle of a fire
When fear is closing in
You are, You are my song
You’re my hope when hope is gone

I will cast my cares on You, the Almighty
I will cast my cares on You ‘cause You’re good
I will cast my cares on You ‘cause You love me
You love me
All, all because You love me
All, all because You love me

God of Glory, You are able
Through Your power to be faithful
God of mercy, every moment
You are near to me

In the middle of the night
I’ll pray with confidence
In the middle of a fight
You’re greater still
In the middle of a fire
You’re love is holding me
You are, You are my song
You’re my hope when hope is gone
