The Cast Away By Tammy Nicole Glover

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 NIV

My Dearest Friend,

What has happened to us? We’ve been inseparable for so long, I didn’t think anything could tear us apart. When people saw you coming, they saw me. I’m so confused. What would possess you to cast me aside like this? How could you throw all of our years together away like this? What are you going to do without me?

I bet it was that Faith causing all this trouble. I knew it was trouble the moment I saw it lingering in the shadows, just watching and waiting for you to notice it. Once you noticed it you have been a completely different person. I don’t like it. I miss the old you. The one that hung out with me all the time and didn’t ignore me.

It’s ok though, someone who calls himself El Shaddai caught me while I was drifting aimlessly with your other friends, Anger, Fear, Guilt, Shame and Depression. What a bunch of clowns…how could you hang out with them? Anyway, El Shaddai is taking real good care of us now but he won’t let us run back to you. If you just tell him that you miss us, I’m sure he’ll let us come home. Don’t you miss us? Why can’t we come back home? How are your new friends better than us? What does Faith, Joy, Mercy and Love have that we don’t have?

Maybe one day you’ll let us come back home. It’s ok we’ll wait for you.

Sincerely,

Your Worries

“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:27 NIV
