"When we humble ourselves each morning by casting all our cares on the Lord, we will start the day free of care. The humble are genuinely care free. I've discovered how true that is about myself and my soul. Where there's worry, where there's anxiousness, pride is at the root of it. When I am experiencing anxiety, the root issue is that I'm trying to be self-sufficient. I'm acting independent of God. What's the solution?
"Humble yourself," God says.
"Acknowledge your need for Me! Cast your cares upon Me, and I will transform you, (enter your name here). For though I'm opposed to your pride, I'll give grace to you when you humble yourself, and I'll make you care free - not responsibility free, but carefree. You'll be free from care. You'll instead be characterized by joy and peace.""
