WHEN PEOPLE DON’T CARE ……..
“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” ` Peter 5:7……….
“Cast your burden on the Lord, And He shall sustain you;…” Psalm 55:22…….
“People don’t care [sometimes],” I told paralyzed ministry doggy Miss Mercy as I changed her diaper. “But Jesus cares.”
I knew immediately I had a message. I had been thinking of several people in the past few days who had let me down. They had made promises and not followed through. To them, it probably didn’t matter much. To me, it mattered much. So I decided to tell Miss Mercy. Not that she would answer. But the Spirit of God moved quickly on my heart. Reminding me of this.
Jesus cares. No matter how people treat us, no matter whether or not they care, no matter whether or not they keep their promises, no matter if they have compassion or not, no matter how they act, and what they say, and do, or don’t say and do, this is true. The Lord Jesus Christ cares.
I needed to forgive the people. And I needed to get my focus off them and onto Jesus. For Jesus cares. Always. And forever. He cares!
I smile as I write this. To know and experience and enjoy and rejoice over the love of the Lord Jesus Christ, how awesome! How awesome is the Lord! Oh, and how He cares!
Miss Mercy didn’t respond to me. She’s just a sweet, beloved paralyzed ministry doggy, after all. But she didn’t need to answer. For the Spirit of God gave me everything I needed in those moments.
Reminding me. As I remind you now. JESUS CARES!
