SOMEBODY CARES



  Casting all your care upon him;
for he careth for you
1 Peter 5:7




SOMEBODY CARES 

Somebody knows when your heart aches,
And everything seems to go wrong.
Somebody knows when the shadows
Need chasing away with a song.

Somebody knows when you’re lonely,
Tired, discouraged and blue,
Somebody wants you to know Him,
And know that He dearly loves you.

Somebody cares when you’re tempted,
And the world grows dizzy and dim;
Somebody cares when you’re weakest,
And farthest away from Him.

Somebody grieves when you’re fallen,
Even then you’re not lost from His sight;
Somebody waits for your asking
Him to take the gloom from your night.

Somebody loves you when weary;
Somebody loves you when strong;
He always is waiting to help you
And watches you all the day long.

Are you needing His presence so holy
Or needing His friendship so true?
His name? We call Him Jesus.
His people? Folks just like me and you.



I love them that love me;
and those that seek me early shall find me.
Proverbs 8:17

‘ A Mother’s Love ‘ 

Whose is the heart that burst with pride each time she sees your face.
Whose are the eyes that dart about, to check your world is safe.
Whose are the arms that wrap you up and hold you tight and close.
Whose is the love that’s always there whenever you need it most.

Whose is the smile that lights the room when you smiling too
Whose shoulder is the place to be, when only a cuddle will do.
Whose chest is warm and comforting when you’re a weary soul
Whose motivation only has your happiness as her goal. 

Whose are the tears that cry for you as you grow old and free
Whose is the heart that aches so much, in the space where you should be.
Whose is the head that knows that you must find your path alone
Whose is the voice who welcomes you each time you go back home. 

Who could have so many facets that make her oh so great 
Who has you on her mind each day, and today we celebrate.
Whose hands hold and guide you, in a way unlike another 
All these are part and parcel of the joys of being a mother.




A mother laughs our laughter: 
sheds our tears, 
fear our fears. 
She lives our joys. 
Cares our cares, and
all our hopes and
dreams she shares.

TODAY IS THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER


My voice shalt thou hear in the morning,
O LORD;  in the morning
will I direct my prayer unto thee, 
and will look up.   
Psalm 5:3
Come to the morning-prayer;
Come, let us kneel and pray:
Prayer is the Christian pilgrim’s staff,
To walk with God all day.

At noon, beneath the Rock
Of Ages, rest and pray;
Sweet is that shelter from the heat,
When the sun smites by day.’

At evening, shut thy door;
Round the; home-altar pray;
And, finding there the house of God,
At Heaven’s gate close the day.

When midnight veils our eyes,
Oh, it is sweet to say,
I sleep, but my heart waketh, Lord,
With thee to watch and pray.

James Montgomery


The LORD is nigh unto all them
that call upon him, 
to all that call upon him in truth. 
Psalm 145:18 


Faith asks no signal from the skies,
To show that prayers accepted rise,
Our Priest is in His holy place,
And answers from the throne of grace.


Faith, mighty faith the promise sees,
And Looks to God alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, It shall be done!


Charles Wesley




Can I have the things I pray for?
God knows best;
He is wiser than His children.
I can rest.


Pray without ceasing. 
1 Thessalonians 5:17

FRET NOT

  

 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, 
neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 
Psalm 37:1



Dear restless heart, be still; don’t fret and worry so;
God has a thousand ways His love and help to show;
Just trust, and trust, and trust, until His will you know.

Dear restless heart, be still, for peace is God’s own smile,
His love can every wrong and sorrow reconcile;
Just love, and love, and love, and calmly wait awhile.

Dear restless heart, be brave; don’t moan and sorrow so,
He hath a meaning kind in chilly winds that blow;
Just hope, and hope, and hope, until you braver grow.

Dear restless heart, repose upon His breast this hour,
His grace is strength and life, His love is bloom and flower,
Just rest, and rest, and rest, within His tender power.

Dear restless heart, be still!  Don’t struggle to be free;
God’s life is in your life, from Him you may not flee;
Just pray, and pray, and pray, till you have faith to see.

Edith Willis Linn

THE BEST BOOK OF ALL


Cling to the Bible, though all else be taken;
Lose not its promises precious and sure;
Souls that are sleeping, its echoes awaken,
Drink from the fountain, so peaceful, so pure.

Lamp for the feet that in byways have wandered,
Guide for the youth that would otherwise fall;
Hope for the sinner whose best days are squandered,
Staff for the aged, and best Book of all.

M. J. Smith



Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, 
rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15
