Good morning! Whatever your circumstances today, you need to know that it is no accident you are here right now. I hope you take the time to read the Scriptures posted on this webpage and meditate on them...how they apply to you right now. God loves you. He knows your every need. You can bring Him all of your problems and concerns right now and make your petitions and requests concerning them and then rest assured that He is able to take care of them all.

God does not want you upset but filled with the Spirit and with faith in His abilities.

"Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)

The NASB says, "...casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you."

The NCV says, "Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you."

The Amplified Bible says, "Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully."

No matter how you say it, it boils down to the fact that we have a loving, caring Heavenly Father who wants you to speak to Him, to rely on Him, to have faith in His ability to work in your life and in the lives of those who concern you. He alone has the power to change lives, to bring peace, to mend hearts and save souls.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." (Eph. 3:20-21)

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." (ESV)

"Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it)."

"He knows my name, He knows my every thought, He sees each tear that falls, and hears me when I call."
