“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
There is a saying that is seen quite often lately that goes something like this: “Even though they carry it well, doesn’t mean the load is not heavy.” There is a lot of truth to this statement. There are those among us that suffer from things we may not see or ever know about. A childhood trauma, an illness that shows very little outward symptoms or a phobia are just a few of the things that can interrupt a person’s life and cause pain and suffering, both physically and emotionally.
There are people, that although they are suffering everyday, don’t complain. They get up each morning and put one foot in front of the other and move forward as best they can. To the general public, they appear to have it all together. They don’t look sick or depressed or stressed. The outside looks fine. But thank goodness, God sees the heart and He knows our thoughts and He feels our pain.
So for all you that suffer silently and give it your best everyday, God bless you. Please know that God loves you, that He cares for you more than you can even imagine and He is always there to give you new strength and hope.
When others don’t see or understand, God always does and He invites you to give all your cares (worries, sickness, pain) to Him. Why? Because He loves you.
