Keep Coming Back

For the past week, I’ve been meditating on the lyrics to a song sung by Audra Lynn, based on the fabulous recommendation from Mary Goes Round.  I haven’t been able to find it online, but the lyrics are below:

“Cast all your cares on Me,
for I care for you, I care for you.
For all your fountains are in me,
and I have everything you need. 
Just keep coming back to Me. 
And those who call upon My name
they will not be put to shame.
Just keep coming back to Me.
Cast all your cares on Me,
cause I care for you, I care for you.
Just keep coming back to Me.”
Not only are these lyrics encouraging, but they’re based on scripture:
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7

“As they make music they will sing, ‘All my fountains are in you.”
Psalm 87:7 
“O Lord, let me not be put to shame, for I call upon you.”
Psalm 31:17
“In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
Isaiah 30:15
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters…Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.”
Isaiah 55:1,3 
(There are lots of versions about coming back to God, so I picked a few of my favorites)

No matter what season we might be facing right now, God has so much to offer us.  He cares deeply for us and longs to bear our burdens.  Let’s take Him up on His invitation and keep coming back to Him day after day.
