Memory Monday – Week 82

In Psalm 55:22 which reads, “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken”,  David expresses dismay after the burden he was carrying was too much. I think we can all relate to David at some point in time. Lately I have felt worn out. I’m weary and much like most other winters, just feel like I’m in a funk. Yes, I hate cold and I hate winter. Thankfully yesterday the Lord blessed us with a gorgeous day and lots of sun!

The Lord calls us in this verse to cast our cares on Him and in turn He promises to sustain us.The wonderful thing about the Lord, just as mentioned over and over on my posts, is He wants us to seek Him. God never wants us to go about life or deal with trials on our own, but He wants us to partner up with Him.

When we follow Him, we will never be shaken. What a beautiful promise! This isn’t just words on a paper, but this is active and alive today! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to let the Lord help you in all areas that you need Him.

Do you trust God to sustain you as you give him your cares and burdens? David ends the Psalm by stating he trusted in the Lord. That place of trust and surrender is the best place any of us can be. Don’t let your burdens weigh you down, but instead give them to God, the one who can sustain you.

    So true! Whenever I face a huge problem now, I can almost hear God saying, “Why are you letting this worry you? Let me handle this.” And it helps me calm down. A beautiful promise, indeed 🙂

    I needed this so much today! I’ve had the most rotten day and anger and frustration and sadness was welling up inside me… then I read this.

    I wrote this verse on my whiteboard.

    Thank you my friend. Once again you blessed me.

    Caroline, sometimes I feel like you are in my head, ha! You know just what I need. Thank you.
    And we are total opposites when it comes to winter. It’s been so warm here we aren’t getting any snow. Obviously WA missed the memo on it being an epic winter. 😉

    What a great reminder. I just need to try to remember this on the days that I’m struggling. I’m getting better at that, though. I loved the sunny weather we received, too. I just love Spring and am so excited for it to arrive!

    I wouldn’t say I ever have the attitude that I can do it on my own but I feel a disconnect in the communication with the Lord. As we know that is me and not him. I guess we just get in a fun every once in a while and have to be purposeful in keeping our eyes on Him. Thinking of you friend 🙂

    Thank you for the gentle reminder of how the Lord works in our lives and how He wants us to partner with him. I’m so thankful that I have a savior to call mine!

    This is unrelated to this post, but I am tagging you in a Q&A post going live tomorrow (Wednesday)!
