God Cares

Problems can be roads to spiritual growth that good times will never provide.
We stand the tallest and the strongest
on our knees

(Dr. Charles Stanley)

God cares and pleads for us to cast upon Him all our care
No pious platitudes, His Word; nothing He cannot bear

God cares: daily He succors us. Praise be to Holy God
No other god can sanctify the sinner through his blood

Can trust The Great Caretaker for those things we cannot see

God cares; He does not overlook our unbelief and pride
But once for all He sent His Son; on our behalf He died

How could it be a God who sends His Son for us forgets?
God cares; His promises abide where pain and grief besets

He does not leave us comfortless; He hears our humble prayers
And answers in His timing: how He loves us, how God cares

 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Ps. 55:22
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Ps 68:19

"I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jer. 32:27 

One of my favorite songs...

God Will

God will walk with me
down streets where no one else will walk
God will talk with me
of things that no one else will talk

When no one else will walk
and no one else will talk
when no one will
God will

God will share with me
the little worries no one knows are there
God will care for me
whenever there is no one else to care

When no one will be there
and no one else will share
when no one will
God will

God will think of me
when friends forget and fail to understand
God will strengthen me
when I am weak and need a helping hand

When no one understands
or lends a helping hand
When no one will
God will
when no one will
God will
