“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
I cast all my cares upon You, Lord,
for worry is something I can’t afford.
I’ll take Your peace, instead of stress;
Your thoughts towards me are always to bless.
Oh, what a compassionate God we have.
His love for us is like healing salve.
Cast your cares on Jesus–His peace in trade;
then leave them there once you have prayed.
Now, keep your confidence–don’t cast it away.
Hold fast to your faith in Him each day.
P. A. Oltrogge
