On sustaining

Psalm 55:22
"Cast your burdens on the LORD,
and he will sustain you;"

I am a big fan of casting my burdens on the Lord.
"casting all your anxiety on Him who cares for you" 
1 Peter 5:7

A big fan, but not always a faithful one, but that is another thought.

This morning while reading Psalm 55, I discovered a new side of the casting--
the receiver.

Yes, we cast our burden on Christ Jesus, 
but then what?

Psalm 55:22 was encouraging to hear,
it tells us what happens next--
after the casting, it says
we will be sustained.

"Cast your burdens on the LORD,
and he will sustain you;"

Sustain is defined as 
1. : to give support or relief to
2. : to supply with sustenance : nourish

Could you use support or relief from some burden?
Could you use a little nourishment?

Whatever your facing.
Whatever burden you are carrying,
cast it on Him who cares for you.
trust and believe Him;
walk forward in peace
and boldness,
be sustained.

it's actually simple.

Be encouraged.
