Let's Play Hot Potato With Our Cares
I think it's time for us, as adults, to play that HOT potato game with the worries, concerns, challenges, fears, intimidations and any other adverse taunts that the enemy sends our way. He plays games with us, so why don’t we play games with him? When we play offensively against our arch-enemy #1, with the power of God’s Word and His Spirit within us…..he will be the loser every time. 1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.” I love that. Casting is like playing Hot Potato – getting rid of that potato as soon as possible, and getting rid of our worries and anxieties by casting them on He Who is our worry-bearer, our care-bearer, and all our other concerns-bearer.

It was just "puppy love" that brought my Honey and I together at the ages of 13 and 12. We eventually married at the "mature" ages of 18 and 17. And that's when our faith journey began. Over the years, we encountered many opportunities to stretch our faith, especially when our babies were very sick, when financial situations were out of control, and when our marriage relationship had some rocky periods.But we made it through those times by our strong faith and trust in God. But never was our faith more challenged, than when my 63 years "young" husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. Fortunately, the 44 years of marriage and faith-building experiences, caused us to "weather the storm", and still remain in peace and strong in our faith. This "peace that passed understanding" compelled me to blog and share the principles that caused our faith to be unwavering and continues to give me the joys of living large! I'm still here, so I'm not done!. I pray you will grow in your faith as you, not only read the blogs, but apply the principles to your own life -- for the good times, and especially for those times that seem so overwhelming.
