Our Mistress of Ceremonies for the Five Minute Friday is Kate over at Heading Home. Hope you link up with us and join the fun.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
I Peter 4:6-7
One of the harshest things I've ever heard said to another child was when a relative gleefully confessed that she'd told another, much younger relative, "You are a child. I don't care about your feelings." Most of my family laughed in pleasure. I was cussin' fightin' mad! I'm just so thankful that the culprit was not the child's mother. But what if it had been? Or worse, what if it had been her father?
There are many moments in our lives when we feel that no one cares. I have those moments often. I suppose it is a product of dealing with depression. Most times in church circles, those of us who feel any despair are told we are selfish and having a pity party. When people say that, I want to cuss (and often do under my breath). I am not asking you for anything but to simply give a s@#*! Is that too much to ask? Apparently, it is.
However, one comfort I have is the Father God never says of His children, "I don't care." He always cares. He's always listening.
