Cast Away Your Cares – A Student’s Daily Thought for the Day.


At the start of this new OU (Open University) module, this new and final academic year, I have given into panic and anxiety about all the new changes being introduced creating a more VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), and that I will be revisiting information that I have not looked at for two years and consequently I’ve forgotten! I’ve been metaphorically running around like a chicken with its head cut off panicking! When I’ve stopped long enough to get some perspective, I’ve heard a Voice within me calming me down, reminding me not to worry, because worrying doesn’t help, that worrying doesn’t add a single day to my life, that the birds of the air do not worry about what they will eat  because He provides for them, so why worry?!  He reminded that He’s helped me get this far in my journey, and will continue to do so and to trust Him.  This morning I was reminded to cast my cares on Him because He cares for me. So once again I choose to cast away my cares, adopt a more positive outlook and face down my fears!  As a friend often reminds me, I can only do what I can do. At my own pace, in my own style and way, not dancing to anyone else’s tune but my own. I’m a  plodder, a slow reader, I have a poor short term memory, I’m afraid of numbers and statistics, but I will get there, I will be okay, I will cross the finish line!
