Quieting My Heart: The Way to Live Free

Do we sometimes go through our days
carrying our own heavy burdens?
All the while, wondering why
the sun is hiding,
and our hearts are weighed down?

"It's the light of God's care
that will set you free.
But you need to
cast your cares on Him."

"Give all your
worries and cares
to God, for He cares
about you."
(I Peter 5:7)

Maybe it is in the giving up
of solving our own problems,
in the moving of our cares
from our own shoulders
to the warmth of His care -
that we are then
ready to receive
His Love.

"Rather than stressing out
to get as much done
as you possibly can today,
make the space
to let God love you
as much as He possibly can."
