As I was thoroughly enjoying my lovely stroll through Target the other night, I couldn’t help but notice a precious toddler coming down the center aisle. It wasn’t his looks or his cute little waddle that caught my attention, it was the fact that he was declaring for all of Target to hear, “I happy”!
Every few seconds, he would declare in a matter-of-fact-kind-of-way, “I happy”.
A sweet boy, who didn’t have a care in the world, was focused on the fact that he was happy, period.
As I was talking to God about a situation in my life, my mind replayed that sweet boy’s voice.
Naturally we think he’s just a small child, he doesn’t have any cares or worries. He is taken care of.
Who knows, he may have had a diaper full of lovely creations, but he made a choice to be happy.
I was reminded that I am taken care of. I don’t have to worry. I have Someone who is doing the caring for me.
I Peter 5:7 says “Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.”
I love how the Amplified Bible says it! Plus, the Amplified Bible uses a lot of words, like a woman. 🙂
As we cast all of our cares (every worry) on to Jesus, He will do the caring for us! This verse is one that gives me a sigh of relief. Like a weight has been lifted off of me.
What a great verse to read over and over! I encourage you to replay this verse over and over in your mind. My Pastor always says “Put the Word of God in you when you don’t need it so it will come out when you do!”
Be encouraged today! God is good and He truly cares for you!
