Care

Each week, we write for five minutes, freely, on a one-word prompt. No time for process. We write quickly, then post, a flash-mob linking together at Kate Motaung’s site. It’s fun!
This week’s prompt:  CARE



I fished for a compliment and I didn’t get it, and I had to fight back tears.

Traffic and poor planning made me late, and my hands clenched in rage. 
On that very same day, boys got shot, people were tortured, and unborn babies were murdered… 
and I hardly paid attention.
God tells me to cast all my cares on Him. I used to think He was just being thoughtful… wanting to take my cares so that my burden could be lighter. 
“Cast your cares on the LORD 
and he will sustain you; 
he will never let the righteous be shaken. “
Psalm 55:22
  

But when I really look at what I care about, and I remind myself of who He is, 
I realize that He has bigger plans. 
Cast your cares, my child, and I will give you a rock to stand on. 
I will give you a new heart and righteousness. 
Cast your cares on me, and you will receive new ones.
So we may cry and laugh together.
