DOES JESUS CARE?
?The strong are not always vigorous,
The wise not always ready,
The brave not always courageous,
The joyous not always happy.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon wrote these words for his preacher students.
Well, I didn't think I needed them. One of my greatest assets was a cheerful disposition. Every body called me the ?Sunshine Minister".
Children loved me and I loved them. I just loved to smile. Things were just going great.
Then suddenly the unfamiliar valley of deep depression and despondency
began to grow. Gloom became as great as the joy I had once enjoyed.
I began to sing Joseph Scriven's old hymn:
"What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and grief’s to bear, What a prvilege to carry, everything to God in prayer...<BR>
Time went by then 1 Pet 5:7 hit me, and 1 Peter 5:7 ?Cast all your anxiety on him because He cares for you." Yes, commit your burdens to the Lord. Yes, and He cares for you! Ask for His help in prayer, reflecting on Phil 4. Search the Word for there is a promise for every need. Trust Him.
