Who Cares!

December, once again, found us dealing with the repercussions of the recession. I was so discouraged I spent an entire day crying.

Then a thought went through my mind. What am I crying for? What's it going to do? Who cares if I cry?

Not to many days later, I was looking in the fridge. It was pretty empty. "Lord, I'm going to need to go grocery shopping." I didn't want to spend any money because I didn't know when or if money was coming in again. I had enough for rent, bills, etc. but wanted to hold on to it as long as I could.

I needed to go and get my daughter from school. I had about five minutes. The doorbell rang just as I was preparing to leave. I opened it to a dear friend of mine who I saw at church or other groups. But rarely did we stop at each other's homes. I felt a bit awkward because I needed to leave.

I invited her to join me. She said, "No, I have groceries." I offered for her to stay until I came back and she said, "No, I have groceries and some of them need to get in the fridge." I didn't know what to do.

Then she explained she had been at Trader Joe's and felt she was to buy us groceries. She had groceries for us in the car. I stood there in amazement. I had just prayed about groceries.

Our families don't normally eat together, but she had bought everything my family likes. And not only that, but I had a few events to attend and in the bags were things I specifically needed to bring.

After bringing the bags in, putting stuff in the fridge and thanking her profusely, I left to go pick up my daughter.

Though I didn't hear an audible voice. I clearly heard the words in my mind, "Remember when you asked, who cares? I CARE." I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt whose voice I heard.


I just need to say in those moments where you feel alone and cry unheard tears. God never sleeps. He never slumbers. He watches over you, night and day. He CARES and loves you so much.


Thank you Linda for this post. I know that I can add here that I have been in this situation for some time now.......starting all over again at my age after making another relationship choice that I really thought was from the Lord......was not.....more on my upcoming blog on all of that but wanted to say...

Time and time again God takes care of us "DAILY" when I don't know if I will have enough to buy even a single gallon of milk for a VERY growing boy.....all bills are NOT paid and robbing Peter to pay Paul. God is meeting all those needs....again........DAILY. He is teaching me right now the scripture that says. "Let the day care for itself" Matthew 6:34

Love you,
