At Calvary

cast all your cares

My old home church used to sing, Burdens are lifted at Calvary.
Peter wrote, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”

However, when resolution is delayed or not going the way you want it to go,
your emotions will prompt you to take back your burdens & your fears.

That’s a really bad idea!
Because YOUR solutions are always filtered through your SHAME!
Whereas His plans for you are so much greater than you can imagine.

Instead of your former shame
    you will receive a double portion,
& instead of your past humiliation
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
Because He fully intends to give you
a double portion of His goodness right where you are,
    & everlasting joy really can be yours.

[Dr. Debi’s amplified version]

Yes, it is time to lay all of your burdens & your pain at His feet.
Leave everything that concerns you in His hands. Let go.
He has promised you & He will do it!

It’s Time to Build a Better Life!

God is not human & does not lie.
Does He speak & then not act?
    Does He promise & not fulfill?
A longing fullfilled is a tree of life!
