Amid the trials that I meet

Amid the trials that I meet,
Amid the thorns that pierce my feet,
One thought remains supremely sweet—
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
What need I fear when Thou art near,
    And thinkest, Lord, of me!
The cares of life come thronging fast,
Upon my soul their shadows cast;
Their gloom reminds my heart at last
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!
Let shadows come, let shadows go,
Let life be bright, or dark with woe,
I am content, for this I know
  Thou thinkest, Lord, of me!

This song just came to my mind this morning to increase my faith and trust in my GOD knowing that with JESUS all things are possible. Mountains melt before HIM, Valley becomes plain before HIM. Thank You LORD JESUS Amen !

This song has been on my lips all day.

It reminds me of the confidence in the word of God.

It's a powerful revelation for me and my wife Bertha. We are encouraged in every way possible and continue trusting the Lord.
