She clicked the disconnect button on the cell, missing those old phones you could slam down hard on the cradle. Somehow a finger tap wasn’t enough. Raw emotions rang the bell atop her internal ‘test your strength’ limit.
It wasn’t true you know. She still cared, but she was spent. The worry sucked the breath from her lungs like a vice grip. Maybe if she stopped caring, she could let go of the worry.
Sound familiar? I think we’ve all been there.
But caring isn’t an emotion we can easily switch off, and why would we want to?

Pray away the worry-gray.
Praise Him in the light of day, and dark of night where He brings light.
It doesn’t mean we stop caring, it means we start surrendering.
And worry-free we can be. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
Are you ready?
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7 (NKJV)
