Leggo all a yuh problem pan Jesus
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 NIV
Good morning friends, happy Friday.
Apologies for last week’s reflection, I was not feeling well.
Today’s Reflection text is not new to us, but I believe it’s a timely reminder , with all that has been happening around the world and here inna wi likkle island!.
Hear the word of the Lord today, “leggo all a yuh problem pan Jesus, em a di one weh bizness wid yuh” ( Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you).
Women, men, and children have been dying, earthquake shaking, gender activists breathing down our necks and so much have been happening. Everyday we hear of destruction and devastation on the news. The violence against women and children are seemingly increasing day by day. The problems of life are just becoming Giants in our land. However, I hear a voice saying “the giants you see today, you will see them no more”.
It is high time brothers and sisters in Christ, and it is easy for us to tremble in fear. But Jesus is saying to us today “cast all your anxiety on me”. Why is Jesus saying this? Because he knows that on our own, by ourselves, we are not physically, emotionally nor mentally able to withstand the wickedness of this present evil world.
Then he went on to say “because I care for you”. Jesus is reminding us that he is our care giver, our daddy, our provider, our refuge, our strength, a present help in the times of trouble*. This is why we cast all our cares on him, because he cares! No human can care for us, in the way he can. He’s ultimately our everything!.
Therefore friends, I urge you in these last days, to seek him while he may be found, to call upon him while you are able and to pray and seek his face daily. There is no other hope in this cold, dark world, our only hope is in Jesus.
Untill next week, “dash all a uno problem pan Jesus, coz a Em care fi uno”.
