With the arrival of Spring and the better weather, this is the time of year when many people begin to renovate their homes and have a clear out of anything they no longer need or want, that may have accumulated over the year. It has recently been proven that “hoarding” is a recognised illness, and many people save things that to others would appear completely useless, so that when things are cleared out, items that are important or of any value may be overlooked and cleared out along with them, and lost forever. In the Bible, we read these words “Cast all your cares on Him, because He cares for you.” God wants to bless us in a real and personal way, but our lives can be filled with cares and worries, maybe about our family – problem children, elderly parents, ill relatives, financial worries – where will the money to pay the bills come from, is my job secure? These are all very real problems yet so often our time is taken up with other worries that, in the big scheme of things, aren’t all that important. We can allow these cares and worries to take over so that the blessings that God wants to give us become lost or thrown out. Jesus didn’t come that we might have a life free from problems, but if we cast our cares on Him we can have a life free from worrying about our problems and experience the blessings God wants us to enjoy!!!
