His Personal Concern

1 Peter 5:7 (Phillips Translation)
You can throw the full weight of your anxieties on Him. For you are His personal concern.

AMEN! My heart leaps at this. This verse is so comforting to me. I have been struggling with anxiety lately - and I have to moment by moment throw all of my concerns on the Lord knowing that I am His personal concern! I love that - His (the God of the universe!) personal concern - it boggles my mind and brings me amazing peace all at the same time! He wants to know what is on my heart! He cares about what makes me anxious. He wants to carry those anxieties for me! Did you catch that visual? Throw the full weight of your anxieties on Him! He's big enough to handle them all - even if you throw them!

Moonbeam and all the waiting children are His personal concern!

And you know what? You too, are His personal concern!
