Talking faith

Has the optimism that goes with the a new year slipped away yet?

With the circumstances of our lives, some things we can resolve to change, but those beyond our control can sometimes overwhelm us.

It may be strained relationships, or financial worries, or the loss of a loved one. When we don’t know what to do about these things, the word of God is very clear. Psalm 55 declares: “Cast your cares on the lord, for he cares for you” and again in 1 Peter 5 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”. If you are feeling overwhelmed, then focus on those two verses, and especially on the second half. This truth will sustain you through life, so take it for yourself and share it with everyone.
