Today’s devotional is from Max Lucado’s Grace for the Moment:

Lay Down Your Cares

Praise the LORD,

God our Savior, who

helps us every day.

Psalm 68:19

Perhaps the heaviest burden we try to carry is the burden of mistakes and failures.  What do you do with your failures?

Even if you’ve fallen, even if you’ve failed, even if everyone else has rejected you, Christ will not turn away from you.  He came first and foremost to those who have no hope.  He goes to those no one else would go to and says, “I’ll give you eternity.”

Only you can surrender your concerns to the Father.  No one else can take those away and give them to God.  Only you can cast all your anxieties on the one who cares for you. What better way to start the day than by laying your cares at this feet?

Walking with the Savior


We must remember this during these tough and challenging times, when we are not sure what to trust or what we should be doing.

God is there for us, to give us rest, unload our burdens and even carry us when needed.

It is so easy to forget as we trudge through this world and all of the distractions and stuff it heaps on us daily.

We must remember to take some time each day to lay our cares and concerns at God’s feet.  He is waiting for us…

May God Bless You, until Christ Comes!
