The Catcher's Mitt

I felt frustrated, anxiety and disappointment.
I heard the voice of God tell me to stop
what I was doing and close my eyes.
As I closed my eyes I began to vision Him with
a catcherís mitt and we were standing on
a baseball field.

The bases were loaded with all my cares for the day. He told me to throw Him my cares. I took a deep breath and threw Him frustration first. He had to jump a little high for frustration, but it was no problem for Jesus. He caught it. Then I threw Him anxiety. Anxiety was nothing for Him to catch, as He smiled at me. Then I threw Him disappointment. He ran up for disappointment, but a funny thing happen when disappointment entered His mitt. Disappointment jumped around a bit. Disappointment didnít want to lie quietly in the mitt. The rejections, the pains, the hurts, the bitterness, were all hooked on to disappointment. All those things I had wanted and never got didnít want to lie down in Jesus mitt. I looked at Jesus. He told me to breathe in, for disappointment would have no victory with Him. I knew I would never be disappointed in Jesus. As I breathed in and let go, I saw disappointment lay flat in His mitt.

He caught disappointment for me along with
all his little brothers and sisters. Jesus made a homerun for me today. When I threw him my cares and let go. He caught them all one by one.

Jesus catches our cares. All we need to do is give them to him.
