Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

When fear feels bigger than my faith

And struggles steal my breath away

 

When my back's pressed up against the wall

With the weight of my worries stacked up tall

You're strong enough to hold it all

 

I will cast my cares on You

You're the anchor of my hope

The only one who's in control

I will cast my cares on You

I'll trade the troubles of this world

For Your peace inside my soul

 

This war's not what I would've chosen

But You see the future no one knows yet

 

And there's still good when I can't

See the working of Your hands

You're holding it all

 

I will cast my cares on You

You're the anchor of my hope

The only one who's in control

I will cast my cares on You

I'll trade the troubles of this world

For Your peace inside my soul

 

Im finding there's freedom

When I lay it all on Your shoulders

 

Cast my cares

I will

Cast my cares

I will

Cast my cares on You

There’s a little game you can play next time you’re in the car.  It’s called “What’s the desire?”  It’s a pretty simple two-step game.  Step one is you realize that every single person in every car around you has something that they are desiring right now.  It may be ice cream from the grocery store down the street.  It could be their daily latte.  It might just be the desire to go to work, make money, and provide for their family.

Step two, you can pray this song for them and for yourself.  You can say “Lord, I cast my cares on You, and I pray that the person next to me will trust you enough to also cast their cares on you.  Please help us realize that you’re the only one who's in control.  I know that they are having troubles of some kind, and that they have a desire that only you can fill.  I can’t see what’s inside their heart, but I do know that there is peace inside my soul because of you, and I pray for them to find that peace, because that will ultimately meet their desire."

Can you imagine how we’d be able to erase road rage from our streets if everyone did that?!
