What if while watching one of your favorite television programs you were interrupted by a commercial advertising a company that offered a miraculous new program. This new program is designed to completely wipe away all of your cares and worries for the low, low price of just $499.00 (or 3 monthly installments of $167.00).
What if this company offered GUARANTEED results and was willing to show you their client history of numerous testimonials from satisfied customers all over the world who have had their cares and worries totally wiped away for life!
But wait! There’s MORE!
In most instances, the reason for cares and worries is due to the fact that we think we can solve our own problems.
What if this same company offered you a FREE monitoring service for any cares and worries, that may attempt to creep back into your life in the future? Their promise is that if any of your cares or worries return, they will wipe them out as well for the rest of your life free of charge!
After hearing of this service would you be willing to get in on this limited time offer to be rid of all of your cares and worries?
I can’t prove it but I would guess that a company that could back up these claims would take the world by storm. They would be trending on Yahoo. The company founders would be on the cover of Business Weekly magazine. Their company stock would go through the roof.
The line outside their corporate headquarters would be wrapped around the building with people willing to fork over $499.00 to have the opportunity to live completely free of cares and worries.
But wait a minute. Our God offers to do the same thing for us FREE of charge. Do you ever wonder why their aren’t lines outside of churches filled with people wanting to hear how they can take advantage of God’s amazing offer to lay their cares and worries on Him?
Answer: Because We Think We Can Solve Our Own Problems…
In most instances, the reason for cares and worries is because we think we can solve our own problems. And when we run into a situation that we can’t solve, cares and worries about the situation arise.
Once we realize how limited we are and acknowledge that there isn’t much we can do to change the life issues we face daily, it becomes easy to lay our cares and worries on God.
Keep only the cares and worries whose circumstances you have the ability to change
Take an inventory of your cares and worries. Of those cares and worries, figure out the ones you can change by continuing to carry the burden of them. You’re welcome to keep those.
Likewise, figure out the cares and worries in your life that you have absolutely no control over and give those cares and worries over to God and be willing to allow Him to work them out for you.
If you’re honest with yourself and you followed the above formula, you will see that carrying your cares and worries dosen’t solve your problems.
So I invite you to begin living a carefree life. Lay your burdens on God who is fully able to work out the cares and worries of your life in a way that’s best for you and for those whom you may be worrying about.
Trust God in all things and give Him the opportunity to reveal Himself to you right in the middle of your cares and worries.
