Thanksgiving and Christmas ought to be the happiest times of the year, but unfortunately for many they are the most stressful times of the year. How about you? Meditating on today’s devotional should help. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Peter 5:7I Peter 5:7 ESV 7
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
I Peter 5:7
“ALL YOUR ANXIETY”
Is there a heart o’er bound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross ― each burden bearing,
All your anxiety ―leave it there.
No other friend so keen to help you,
No other friend so quick to hear;
No other place to leave your burden,
No other one to hear your prayer.
Come then at once ― delay no longer!
Heed His entreaty kind and sweet;
You need not fear a disappointment
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.
All your anxiety, all you care,
Bring to the mercy seat ― leave it there;
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus!
