Before I gave my life to Christ, I really struggled with the idea of talking to God about my problems and telling Him how I felt about life. I couldn’t understand why God wanted a relationship with me; I felt like I was a burden to Him.
Having seen God’s goodness and work in my life, I now understand how important it is for us to cast our cares onto Him. God is not trying to make us feel downhearted or instil us with worries; He simply wants us to place Him at the centre of our hearts and turn to Him with all we have. When we trust God and cast our cares onto Him, He promises to listen to us and grant our heart’s desires.
‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God, and the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.’ Philippians 4:9
