God Cares

God cares
Do you have any idea how much God cares for you? Because God’s love for you is boundless. God went to great lengths to make a way for us to get back to him. But even that’s not all. God wants to care for you right now, right where you are. God cares for you more than you ever know. No matter what you’ve done or left undone. You are loved.

I waited a long time for the Eternal;
    He finally knelt down to hear me.
    He listened to my weak and whispered cry.
He reached down and drew me
    from the deep, dark hole where I was stranded, mired in the muck and clay.
    With a gentle hand, He pulled me out
To set me down safely on a warm rock;
    He held me until I was steady enough to continue the journey again.
As if that were not enough,
    because of Him my mind is clearing up.
Now I have a new song to sing—
    a song of praise to the One who saved me.
Because of what He’s done, many people will see
    and come to trust in the Eternal.
(Psalm 40:1-3, VOICE,*)

God kneels down to you.
God reaches down to you.
God holds you until you are steady enough.

That’s God Almighty we are talking about here. And he loves you so much and he cares for you so much that he turns to you to listen to you and to help you out. How amazing is that! God is gentle and loving. You are his treasure.

Since God cares for you, let Him carry all your burdens and worries. (1 Peter 5:7, VOICE,*)

What’s on your heart today? Do you need help? Even if you feel that no one cares, God does care no matter what. Turn to God and tell him. He is ready to listen to you and reach out to you just the way you need. Nothing is too small to bring to God. No mess is too big for God. He is ready to help you.

That kind of caring really puts a spring in your step. You are cherished and loved and cared for. Just don’t forget to ask for help. God is waiting for pouring our love upon love and grace upon grace.

We all need tender loving care once in a while. It’s always available. Always according to our needs. Always empowering. What are we waiting for?

 

Dear God,
We bring to you our concerns, troubles and messes we’ve made.
Help us!
We bring to you our brokenness, sickness and our neediness.
Heal us!
Pour out love upon love.
Turn to us, Lord!
Let us experience your tender loving care.
Reach down to us!
Hold us until we are steady enough.
Empower us with your grace!
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

I always appreciate if you help sharing the blog posts with your friends & followers. So that everyone might know the love of God, receive the grace of Christ, and live in the presence of the Holy Spirit! Thank you! BLESSINGS!
