“Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken” (Psalm 55:22).
We have all imagined what it would be like to run away from our problems. When examined under the scope of objectivity, it becomes obvious that the things most troubling in life, whether difficult people, challenging circumstances, or negative emotions, are concerns over which we have no control. Such things are neutral when they cross our path. Our response, however, can be proactive. The language of casting is an expression of trust; a trust that accomplishes a sustaining Divine reinforcement.
