Care

I care too much.

I care about the homeless and hungry.

I care about animals and world peace.

I care about other people and what they may think of me.

I care about perceptions and misunderstandings.

I turn it over to God. 

 And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

--Micah 6:8

Everything is easier. I can breathe again. 

I still care, but I am not drowning in it.

  1. Yes, caring can become overwhelming! I try to practice justice in small ways - gardening, praying, reading.... It helps temper my overwhelming desire to help in big ways. Thank you for the reminder!

  2. I hear ya here! Caring too much can be exhausting. It goes from caring to carrying...and then we have to lay it down from pure exhaustion! Thank you for these words! :)

  3. Caring so much also hurts some. There is so many needs but we can only meet those that God brings to us
