STOP LOOKING UGLY –
Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. – 1 Peter 5:7
The essence of this verse is not to live in apathy, but not to live in stress, in panic and in confusion.
I love that I get compliments on how upbeat and happy I am! It’s not me, it’s because I have been taught how to cast my care!
I know Christians that every time I see them they are stern, unhappy, and depressed. Nothing is uglier to me than a professing Christian wearing a frown or a scowl. The action word in this verse is to CAST! This means to throw! To get rid of it!
But if you look fearful, depressed, angry and stressed obviously you are still holding onto the care!
IT IS GOOD NEWS TODAY THAT I DON’T NEED TO CARE FOR MY LIFE BECAUSE GOD CARES FOR ME!
The question is: Can you trust Him with that care?
If so, bring out that smile you haven’t worn in so long, dust it off the shelf! The joy of the Lord will strengthen you, but you must be willing to be joyful!
Stop looking like an ugly Christian, put a smile on!
