Read an Excerpt
Anxiety Cast all your anxiety upon him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7. God, You are big enough to hold the world in Your hands and loving enough to care about every little detail in our lives. When we’re anxious, bring peace.When we’re afraid, give courage. When we’re unsure, provide confidence. Right now I’m worried about __________. I release this to You and entrust myself to Your love. Amen. I stand at the edge of a pond, ripples across the waters mirroring those of my unsettled heart. I pick up a rock the size of my palm and place it in my hand, running my fingers across the surface worn smooth by time and troubles. I pull my elbow back as if I’m a human slingshot and release the stone. It flies over the midnight blue surface before skipping once, twice, and disappearing from view. I dust the dirt of it off my hands. To “cast” our cares means more than just a tentative letting go—it’s a hurling, tossing, complete surrender. This is the offer of God: to let Him take our anxieties as the lake takes the stone, fully and completely. There is enough room for one care or a thousand. We can let them all sink beneath the surface of His endlessly deep love.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This devotional is so beautiful, inspirational and encouraging. I felt like the each and every word was a balm to my heart. I love that Holley covers so many topics that concern us in our daily lives. Anxiety, comparison, depression, heartbreak, rejection and worry are just a few of the things that are focused on. I love that if I'm having an issue with something, more than likely, this book is going to guide me through Scripture and Holley's wise words to give me direction. Each devotion starts with a topic, a Scripture and a beautiful prayer then goes into the devotion based on the topic. They are short devotions but they are comforting and wise. I came away from each one feeling like I knew God in a more intimate way and knowing that God loves me beyond measure. That's a great thing! The devotion also has beautiful artwork that is a feast for the eyes. I love books that give us beauty with graphics and words. The companion journal is so lovely with lots of blank pages for your thoughts and prayers. It also has a lot of the artwork that matches the devotional throughout that make this journal just gorgeous! Scriptures at the bottom of some of the pages are a reminder of God's Word. This is one of the most beautiful journals I've ever seen! These two books would make a wonderful Christmas present or a special gift anytime. They are books that will bring hope and comfort into your daily life and allow you to write your own words and thoughts as you read the devotional and your Bible. I absolutely love them! *These books were provided to me by DaySpring. I received a copy of this book to review but I was not financially compensated in any way.
