Triumphant Victorious Reminders

"casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you."
~ I Peter 5:7 NKJV ~
Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
~ Hebrews 10:35 NKJV ~
I heard a great phrase a few weeks ago from my pastor's wife. With great exhortation she proclaimed, "We must become 'professional care-slingers'!" I laughed in hilarious agreement. I thought, "What a great visual."
Of course, the more I think of it, that scripture, "Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you" truly comes to life. Not only does it come to life; but it is a beautiful reminder of how we are called to live an abundant life revealing Jesus Christ and His victorious freedom that is provided when we abide in and obey Him.
Notice that when we cast our cares upon Him, we know something...We know that He cares for us. I am reminded yet again, that 'knowing' that He cares for me must be a reflection in my daily walk, allowing Hebrews 10:35 to become a manifestation of what I already know. "Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward." As we should become 'professional care-slingers' we must remember not to professionally sling along with our cares, our confidence in Who He is. How often I tend to 'take back' those nagging cares and anxieties.
This is a great reminder that when I professionally 'sling' those cares to God, I must remember those cares were never meant to be 'slung' as boomerangs. They're not suppose to come back for us to receive again!
I want to make sure that I'm slingin' my cares to God; not slingin' boomerangs to myself!
