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!

God really does think about us, even times we feel He is not there. I got a good news yesterday when I least expected. Praise God!

I grew up in Indonesia and we used to sing this song in Indonesian and the words often come back to me, "Hu ingatla aku" (literally, Thou rememberest me!

You are nearer than I can imagine Lord when I sing this song. Your wonders to perform for those who trust completely in You. Thank You Jesus for the cross.

I am sitting here and watching my loving wife on a sick bed. Our two children playing oblivious of the great sorrow that has overtaken me. With the song in the background and an uncertain future, I am trying to pull myself together. Please pray for us.
