Cast all your care upon Him for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5: 7)

Have you ever had a sleepless night when the cares of life, the stresses of your job, or some family crisis has had you so concerned that sleep left you? Just this past evening that happened to me. There were many things that weighed and are still weighing heavy on my soul, I woke up way before I had to get up for my route and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I came here to write a devotional, but erased it because I did not feel it was exactly what the Lord would have me to share. For starters, my little Jenna, (my Granddaughter) has been vomiting since Thursday evening. At this time Dad and Mom have her at the hospital were they have kept her all day. She was dehydrated and she is running a high fever. I think they plan on keeping her over night tonight. I have Josh, (my 8 year old grandson) he is so very upset about his baby sister. I have prayed with him and tried to comfort him and assure him that Jenna is in good hands. He really loves his baby sister.

Last night when sleep wouldn’t come again, I began to read some blogs until I could finally go back to bed. It was there that I began to pray and talk to the Lord about what was troubling me. I knew that the issues that concerned me were beyond what I could fix, and it was then that the words of 1 Peter 5:7 came to my mind, "Cast all your care upon Him for He cares for you." I simply prayed, "Lord, I trust You." I placed the situation in His hands. I felt such a great sense of peace. When the troubling situation would come back to mind I would begin to feel anxious, but as soon as I looked to the Lord and reminded myself to trust in Him the peace returned. I know God will take care of Jenna and the other situations in my life that are out of my control.


When I think of the situations that trouble me I still don't have the answers, but I know the One who does, I am going to spend tonight meditating on Psalm 91 especially verses 1 & 2 which say, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, "You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust” I will trust in Him tonight. He is able to do for me way beyond all I can ask or think (Ephesians 3:14-21)

Hi Lori -- I'm praying for Jenna too. I hope she is better now and can come home not sick. Till I know, I will pray.
Thanks too for the work pictures. It looks peaceful out where those people live.
We are hectic here also, especially for retired people. A dear lady friend who we had power of attorney for her health died Saturday. We will be in Corpus Christi Tuesday. We've pretty well arranged her funeral from here so far. She was a part of our hectic life. We will miss her a lot.
