With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Think on These Things ~ Faith

Think on These Things ~ Faith

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you
1 Peter 5:7

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall
Psalm 55:22

I saw this acrostic for FAITH on my friend, Deb's blog, Jeremiah 29:11, and love the simple reminder that God never intends for us to be weighed down by concerns.

1 Peter 5:7 is one of John's favorite Bible verses.  He is better at forwarding than I and he sometimes reminds me to put on the shield of faith.

This is a wise post and I am doing this more and more. I apologize, as I hit send too quickly and then realized you did not have a linky attached to this post. I quickly edited my post, and am sorry for using your title. Have a beautiful rest of the weekend.

I think this is great and it's new to me. It would even be something to cross stitch or work on for my art journal. Wise and wonderful words!
Hope you and yours are enjoying a restful weekend.
Blessings~

I need to be doing much more of forwarding my issues to heaven, I seem to want to try to handle them myself first. Lovely post

Debbie Huffaker said...

The picture is so pretty. My hubby is much better at forwarding than me, too! Please pray for me, my sweet blogging friend. I'm facing a major decision and seeking God's guidance and His will!

A good thought for me- especially today. Our Earthly cares are so burdensome sometimes...yet we hold onto them. Blessings- xo Diana

This is a perfect illustration to "forward our concerns", and have faith in God's perfect ability to take care of all we care about. I love the acrostic - one I can remember!
