cast away...

today, i found this post on one of my favorite blogs. it spoke volumes to me and i was leaving her a comment, i thought i should post a link to her post on my blog. i think a lot of other moms/women will really relate to what this blogging momma, steph, is talking about!

1 peter 5:7 was referenced in her post. it was very refreshing to be reminded that He wants us to cast all our anxieties to Him so He can bear them for us. often i carry around so many things in my heart and it becomes so heavy. such a burden. it may not be one big thing, just a bunch of little stuff that on top of all the other responsibilities i have, i am completely weighed down and worn out. and honestly i don't even talk about them much because they are so insignificant in the scheme of things.

to be reminded that i don't have to keep all of my fears, anxieties, worries and burdens inside of me, i can lay them at His feet and walk away knowing He cares for me and will take care of me. it is so freeing to release it all and focus on who He is calling me to be; a servant, a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend.

This was beautiful. It is so free. All we have to do is let it go! And whee! : )
