Does Jesus care when my heart is pained

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained
Too deeply for mirth or song,
  As the burdens press,
  And the cares distress,
And the way grows weary and long?
  O yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
  When the days are weary,
  The long night dreary,
  I know my Savior cares.
Does Jesus care when my way is dark
With a nameless dread and fear?
  As the daylight fades
  Into deep night shades,
Does He care enough to be near?
Does Jesus care when I’ve tried and failed
To resist some temptation strong;
  When for my deep grief
  There is no relief,
Though my tears flow all the night long?
Does Jesus care when I’ve said “goodbye”
To the dearest on earth to me,
  And my sad heart aches
  Till it nearly breaks,
Is it aught to Him? Does He see?

I read in Then Sings My Soul, by Robert Cook the story behind this song. I am going to copy it and these words and send them to women on death row in the US.

With eyes clouded with tears as I thought about all my family and I are going through while doing my chores this morning, this song came to my spirit. I left all that am doing to sing it from the hymns. Lord You do care about me and my eyes are on You. I must testify of your goodness before I leave this world. Thank You Lord my saviour.

I was reminded by this song because sometimes I have doubted a lot of things. Even to the point, I doubted Him. But the reason why I realized many thing is because He did not let me go away from Him. He does care for me. His grace is sufficient for me. I just need to learn how to trust Him. To God

be all the Glory, from all praises and thanksgiving I have read.

This song is coming to my lips at a time when am proving the mighty powers of God, have gone through a lot only to be encouraged by this quarters lesson "The book of Job" more so this week of lesson 4. Am planing to sing this song tomorrow in my local church to praise God and give assurance to my brethren that indeed Jesus cares.

I know Jesus cares for me. He has shown me his love in many ways and though my future is still not clear, difficulties here and there, pushing me back into the world, making me doubt God, Yes, I know my Saviour cares. He will see me through these delays and I will have a major breakthrough, to the Glory of His name.

Today facing the awful giant of "financial trouble", the devil whispered see Jesus don't know or cares for you. Well Satan, eat this, IN YOUR FACE!
