You Don’t Care About Me
When you have been deeply hurt, it’s easy to think that there is no one to care. But there is someone who holds you in his heart at all times.

My Next Steps
Thought to Ponder: We don’t ever have to wonder whether God cares for us. We have only to witness Jesus on the cross to be overwhelmed by how much he does.
Treasure to Share: “Cast all your anxiety on him [God] because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
Action to Take: Praying is a great way to cast our anxiety on God and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here’s a simple prayer for you to write out, perhaps put on a sticky note, and then put someplace where you will see it and say it out loud:
“Dear GOD, into your hands, I place my worries, cares, and troubles. Into your wisdom, I place my path, direction, and my goal. Into your love, I place my life. Thank you for hearing this prayer, for Jesus’ sake. Amen.”
