Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed from everything that’s been going on in my life. I was recently laid off from my job and also found out at that my food stamps were cut off for a reason that wasn’t my fault. I also had to deal with issues from my unemployment claim and worry about medical bills.
1st Peter 5:7 NIV states, “Cast all of your anxiety on him because He cares for you.”
This scripture reassures me that God really does care about me. He cares about me so much that He wants to take on my burdens. In my despair, I cried out and prayed to God because of how overwhelmed I felt. After I prayed, I felt so much weight lift off of me.
I need You right now. I can’t handle everything that is going on; I give all of my burdens to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen!
