Ever heard you are to cast your cares on God? Ever gone fishing and casted your line? Do you remember how far it went when done well? We need to let it go for it to not come back. Fishing probably wasn’t the right analogy since with fishing you are trying to catch rather than get rid of and so you keep the rod and reel it back in. With our cares we are to cast them and let go so that we can let God take care of it.

Cast your cares:
Pile your troubles on God's shoulders.
He'll carry your load, He'll help you out.
