Cast all your cares upon him for he cares deeply about you.
Its a great little passage of new testament scripture but used more often than not as a cliche or throw away line from a ‘sincere’ care giver.
But this casting or letting go of ‘our cares and woes’ is a method that counselors and therapists have used for centuries in the treatment of emotional and mental afflictions.
In essence, Jesus is offering to be our counselor… our therapist. An offer you should seriously consider… his rates are quite reasonable.
Here is a little prayer practice of mine that I use in my own quiet times and in larger group training sessions on identity and creativity.
