This is so unlike what I would normally write, I was not sure about posting it; but I feel this is the message that Holy Spirit gave me and wants me to share.
It was a strange fact indeed that the more she thought, the more confused she became.
And the more confused she became, the more thoughts scurried around in her mind as if chased by a furious wind.
Round and round the thoughts chased each other until she was sure the top of her head would just blow right off.
She reached up and put an agitated hand to her hair and pressed, as if to push all the swirling chaos out.
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Let it out and breathed in again. Let it out and sighed.
As the thoughts quieted, she took another deep breath and blew it out, as if trying to blow the lingering upheaval out with her breath.
The quiet voice filled her spirit, overflowing with love and chiding concern.
“Yes, Father?” she asked quietly.
“Why do you allow your mind to become so concerned with what is around you?”
She stretched the word out as she struggled to find an adequate answer but found none.
She closed her eyes and blew out another breath in self-directed derision.
“It’s difficult not to,” she admitted.
“It should not be difficult. What have I told you? Numerous times?”
A smile curved her mouth as love filled her for the One that always asked the tough questions. But she remained silent, waiting for Him to tell her.
“Have I not told you? Do you not yet understand?”
There was another silence as He waited for her to answer. She felt rather than heard the answer. When the words left her, they were barely above a whisper, but she knew He heard her.
“Cast all my cares on You because You love me and will carry them for me.”
“Give them to me,” He prompted, “and allow My peace to overflow within you.”
She lifted her arms and held out her hands, silently offering up the fear, agitation, and stress that had risen all too often recently.
It was all gone.
And in its place was love. Peace. Assurance.
She smiled again as the slightest whisper of warmth pressed against her forehead.
Maybe if He filled her, the other stuff would have no room to grow.
Just a thought.
“Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”
