Casting Your Cares

I got this from a friend and it spoke right to my heart:

My Child,
You think you're all alone.  You think no one cares.  "What's the use," you say.  What's the use?  Hush, child.  Still your mind.  From time to time, everyone hurts.  It isn't the end of the world.  You've experienced hurt before, and it has not defeated you.  It will not defeat you this time.

Just turn to Me, child.  Stand firm, and do not run away.  You will come through this victorious. you are victorious even now, so don't be swayed by the confusion and troubles that surround you.
And don't be moved by the turmoil within you.  You are not ruled by circumstances.  You can change right now!  Instead of reacting in fear, respond in faith!  Take action!  Do something!  Close your senses off to the circumstances and cast all your cares on Me.  Give Me all of your burdens.
It isn't what happens to you in life that causes you to be defeated.  It's what you believe about the circumstance of your defeat.  Right now, in the middle of your problems, you're standing on dry ground.  You'll not drown, for you're in the River of Life.  Right now, in the middle of the fiery furnace, you'll not be burned, for I am with you!
Child, you're not going under, you are going over!  You're going through!  The circumstances around you will not defeat you!  It isn't necessary for Me to change the circumstances.  All you have to do is change.  Refuse to quit.  Refuse to run.  Refuse to react in fear.  Just stand firm.  Stand on My Word. Have faith in Me, for I have overcome the world.

Lift your head above your problems, and view them from your position from above.  For you are above, not beneath.  See how small your problems are when you view them from the right perspective?

Rest in Me, child.  Abide in Me.  Do not for one moment forget that My strength is your strength. You, child, are sheltered in the secret place of the Most High, and you abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  Stay close to Me.  Drop your burdens.  Drop them.  Give them all to Me.  Stay in My presence, and you shall overcome.

Remember the you don't have to stand in faith for something that is already yours.  All you have to do is receive it.  I have said, "Peace I give you, not as the world gives do I give peace.  But I give you the peace that is beyond understanding."

Love, God
