[Originally published as Cast Your Cares: Words to Encourage You in Your Walk With God]

Engaging in nature photography ministers to my spirit. Observing creation calms me because it reminds me to focus on our Creator.

Composing poetry blesses my heart too. God knows about my tendency not to sit still long enough to hear from Him. Poetry has always been the perfect place for me to bring my inner self before the throne room of God, where I linger long enough to experience His touch.

When God encourages me, I long to encourage others. Nothing is more rewarding than inspiring others to seek, love, and enjoy the Lord.

We need His sustaining power every moment of every day.

I hope today’s post blesses you.

Count your cares
As seeds of blessings
For the Lord will take each one
And tend them with providence
Under the reign of His Son.

Whenever I see the words, “Cast your cares on the LORD,” I think of how kind our Father is to each sparrow.

He cares for us too, dear friends. He won’t snub our sniffles.

  1. I agree Wendy, nature photography, art, poetry and writing are a wonderful ways to glorify our Creator! I recently began my third re-read of Dr. Henry M. Morris’ book, Biblical Creationism and this quote rang true: “God said five times that different aspects of His work were ‘good’ and then finally, after it was all complete, pronounced it ‘very good’ (Genesis 1:31). This divine evaluation could be received and then detailed by man in works of music, art, and literature, glorifying and praising God for all He had done in creating and making all things.”
