Are you tied up in knots? "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7). Strong verb there. Cast. Not place, lay or occasionally offer. Peter enlisted the same verb Gospel writers used to describe the way Jesus treated demons. He cast them out. An authoritative hand on the collar, another on the belt, and a "Don't come back". Do the same with your fears. Get serious with them. Immediately cast them upon God.
Worry is an option, not an assignment. God can lead you into a worry-free world. Be quick to pray. Focus less on the problems ahead and more on the victories behind. Do your part, and God will do His. He will guard your heart with His peace....a peace that passes understanding.
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5
We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair....For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory...For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:8, 17-18
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts You. Isaiah 26:3
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
Please keep us in prayer today. It will be a hard day for us. We are leaving the hotel soon and will be bringing Trek to his temporary home. We are sad to have to leave him, but thankful the Lord has placed such wonderful people in our lives and Treks lives to help us through this. Please keep our travels in prayer as well. It's gonna be a long journey home!
We have loved our time here in Nepal. The Lord has been with us.
Goodbye for now Nepal. We WILL be back!
