Casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].

Happy 4th of July! When you’re birthday is on the 4th of July, the entire country is happy and celebrating. Even knowing the temperature has been over 105 degrees on many days, in Florida people are cooking outdoors, going to the beach or pool, eating burgers and watermelon, and enjoying the fireworks. It’s a good day to be surrounded by friends and family, and celebrate the freedom our forefathers fought to create for us. So, take time today to reflect on the history of America the Beautiful.
There are some who have so much anxiety they are unable to enjoy this or any holiday. Social anxiety is serious and prevalent in society. Some people are having anxiety about things such as: how to pay bills; what they will eat; where they will live; if they will find a job; how to keep from losing their children; or what to do about a parent with Alzheimer’s Disease. If you are one of these people, I have good news for you. Regardless of the problem, God understands. You are never alone and He is always there. Turn to Him. If you know someone who is having anxiety, be there for them. Help them. Pray for them. Go celebrate with them. You will be blessed beyond measure.
Have a blessed holiday.
