Worry No More
By Mason Betha

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 Peter 5:7 (Amplified Bible)

If you’ve lived long enough, you’ve experienced some of life’s ups and downs. Life will present down times, yet I have found a way to not let things get me down like they used to. 

There are often times I would spend my nights worrying, tossing and turning, thinking about what was going to happen to me or my family. There was a time when the stress got so bad that it was affecting my body. I was tense in the shoulders and at one point I couldn’t even lift my arm all the way up. I had a lot of emotional and physical pain as well as sleepless nights until I decided I wasn’t going to keep dealing with this the same way anymore. I knew that I loved God and God loved me so there must be a solution.

Then I read in the Word to cast my cares on Jesus. The Word says to give all of my worries to God. So that’s exactly what I did. I told Him about all the things that had me stressed and worried and I said, “Lord, I give You all of these things to fix.” 

That night I went to sleep and slept well for the first time in a long time. I have been practicing this every day since. If something comes my way and I begin to over-think about it, I take it to the Lord in prayer and give Him all of my cares. What a blessing it has been to live a worry-free life!
