Does God Care About Me?

Does God Care About Me?

I’m so alone. I have 4,329 “friends” but they reside in my phone. I’m starting to think they’re figments of the virtual world, which plays out between Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. My friends are doing so much better than I am. They always post how great their lives are. Me, on the other hand…not so much. Last night my car broke down in the seedy part of town and when I picked up my phone to call a friend for help, I couldn’t think of any.

Does God Care About Me?

I haven’t eaten today, and it’s 3PM. My ravenous belly aches from hunger. I press my folded forearms into my stomach to quiet the roars. Twenty feet from me is a fridge and pantry bursting with delicious food. But I can’t eat. The moment I break down and stuff that first morsel into my mouth, the dam will burst and my body will be flooded with the enemy food. And then will come the extra girth and its accompanying invisibility, irrelevance, and obscurity.

My money’s run out. Seems strange because I work all the time. But as soon as payday rolls around, so do the bill collectors. The money’s gone as soon as it was deposited. “Payday” should be called “Money Transfer Day,” but it’s sure not transferring into my account. On top of that, the kids are hungry, the credit cards are maxed, and I need to figure out how to make a box of Cheerios and a bag of brown sugar last two weeks.

Does God Care About Me?

Last night I talked to Jesus. I could see Him; it was strange. I asked Him the burning question: “Do You Care About Me?”

He shook His head and sighed. “Of course. But the better question is, Why didn’t you do it My way?”

He gently but firmly grasped my shoulder and guided my gaze to a vision of me. A better me in a better life. I cried.

“Jesus, why are You showing me this?”

His eyes pierced mine. “This is my Way. It’s all spelled out for you, you’ve just ignored it. You’ve been floating through life and you’ve no idea what you’re doing. My daughter, do it My way instead. Seek Me and you will find Me.

And darling, I show you because I, God, care about you.”
