Worry and I used to be very close companions. We spent a lot of time together and back then, I thought that was a normal way to live. But through the years, God has helped me end my relationship with worry. And He did it with the help of my husband, Dave.
Dave and I have been married for forty-six years now, and every time I have come to him with a problem, Dave has had only one thing to say: “Cast your care.”
Believe me, it’s not very appealing to hear those words from your spouse when you’re feeling frustrated and upset, but it’s exactly what the Bible tells us to do.
First Peter 5:7 says to cast, “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” (AMP).
In the dictionary, the word cast means “to pitch or to throw.” I think that description says a lot because if you’re going to end your relationship with worry, then you’re going to have to get aggressive about it.
