Casting Your Cares Unto God...

I read this in my email devotional this morning. This came to me right when I needed it. I need to memorize all of this so it can flow through my mind every day. Wow!

"In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength..." Isaiah 30:15

NIV translation:
"In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength..." Isaiah 30:15

Strive to see God in all things without exception, and-acquiesce in His will with absolute submission. Do everything for God, uniting yourself toHim by a mere upward glance, or by the overflowing of your heart towards Him. Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inward peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. Commend all to God, and then lie still and be at rest in His bosom. Whatever happens, abide steadfast in a determination to cling simply to God, trusting to His eternal love for you; and if you find that you have wandered forth from this shelter, recall your heart quietly and simply. Maintain a holy simplicity of mind, and do not smother yourself with a host of cares, wishes, or longings, under any pretext.
