Who Cares about Me?

Does Anyone Care about Me?

Have you ever felt, that you are all alone with your trials and difficulties? And perhaps God seems so far away.... Does anyone really understand and care? Or am I left alone to live in this cruel world?

Lets take a look into the Bible.

When we feel discouraged can we trust in man for help?
Isn\'t a time coming when all men will for sake us?
So then, if we are gaining strength from man, and they forsake us, we will fall.
But in Hebrews 13:5 the Bible says:
"...for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
And though all men should forsake us, even if our closest relatives should forsake us, then the Lord will take us up.
Psalms 27:10 "When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up."

God may still use a brother or sister to encourage us but God is the only one who will never leave us nor forsake us. But does He understand our trials, and does he care about what we go through?

Lets dwell for a moment on the closing scenes of Christ\'s life on this earth....

Behold Him in the garden sweating great drops of blood. A solitary angel is sent from heaven to strengthen the Son of God. Follow Him on His way to the judgment hall, while He is derided, mocked, and insulted by that infuriated mob. Behold Him clothed in that old purple kingly robe. Hear the coarse jest and cruel mocking. See them place upon that noble brow the crown of thorns, and then smite Him with a reed, causing the thorns to penetrate His temples, and the blood to flow from that holy brow. Hear that murderous throng eagerly crying for the blood of the Son of God. He is delivered into their hands, and they lead the noble sufferer away, pale, weak, and fainting, to His crucifixion. He is stretched upon the wooden cross, and the nails are driven through His tender hands and feet. Behold Him hanging upon the cross those dreadful hours of agony until the angels veil their faces from the horrid scene, and the sun hides its light, refusing to behold. Testimonies to the Church vol. 1, p. 240

And as He feels the Father withdrawing His presence He cries out " My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me". Truly all men had forsaken Jesus, his disciples had forsaken Him and now he felt as though the Father had forsaken Him!
Contemplate this and ask yourself, does God understand what how I feel?

In Isaiah 63:9 the Bible says:
"In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old."

Does it sound like God doesn\'t care or understand our afflictions?
No! Not at all but the Bible says, that in all our afflictions he is afflicted. That means that whatever we suffer, Jesus is being afflicted with us. He is actually going through it all with us! Shouldn\'t that bring joy to our hearts knowing that our loving saviour is right there beside us every moment of our day!

"Let your mind dwell upon the goodness of God, upon the great love wherewith He has loved us, as evidenced in the work of redemption. If He did not love us, and consider us of value, then this great sacrifice would not have been made. He is beneficent in mercy and in grace. Let your heart and mind be at rest, like a tired child in the arms of its mother. His everlasting arms are beneath you. In all your afflictions Jesus is afflicted. What a privilege it is for you, now afflicted, to find a refuge in Jesus." Upward Look p. 335

Yes God does care for us and He does understand how we feel! And when we are burdened with the cares of this life and feel weak and discouraged, remember these precious Bible promises!
1 Peter 5:6 "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."

Psalms 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

Psalms 62:8 "Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us."

Deuteronomy 33:27 "The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms"

We know Jesus cares for us because he has suffered even greater than we have! He can be touched with the feelings of our infirmities and was tempted in all points like as we are!

Hebrews 4:15-16
"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
"

Lets close with these beautiful words:

"Every soul is as fully known to Jesus as if he were the only one for whom the Saviour died. The distress of every one touches His heart. The cry for aid reaches His ear. He came to draw all men unto Himself. He bids them, "Follow me," and His Spirit moves upon their hearts to draw them to come to Him. Many refuse to be drawn. Jesus knows who they are. He also knows who gladly hear His call, and are ready to come under His pastoral care. He says, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me." He cares for each one as if there were not another on the face of the earth"
(The Desire of Ages, pp. 478-480)

When I draw images of my life, from the paradise realms that live within my uniqueness, and founding creations, in the exotic displays of my time, I often find myself pondering on the one thing in my life, that made my life worth living, and that being my father on this earth, before Father's day, I would like to find myself thanking the one man who made it possible to appreciate my life, through the love, and enthusiasm, he provided me with, throughout the years, and destinies of my life, that I created along the way, through the love of my Father, in this world alone..................
"And within the beauty I discovered within you, to love me beyond anything in this world, I too learned to love, and embrace a world, that witnessed a rising star, due to her emotion state of being, from simply knowing the love within you, as my father. Happy Fathers Day! to a man, who made it possible to understand, the love of one man, who will one day be, that life long partner, who could provide me with the love, and care, I once knew from you, my Father!"

According to the concept that relies on our undeniable requirements, to question the very essence of our psychologies, and the role we play within our lives, in the unrelenting truth that stands before us, my passion, that thrives to exist through my identity, provided me with the comfort to live within the boundaries of my religion, knowing my determined will over the years, was to live within the realm for the love, respect, and wisdom, God provides us with, and the continuation of a life, educating myself for the love I could provide others with, while offering my identity to co-exist as someone, who established a life for myself, through the love of a higher power, knowing the love of God was always by my side, through the acceptance of the life that surrounded me, and the power to embrace all that I could be, and I am.

In this world everyone should be able to comprehend the power of the Lord, and his father, when in believing they have been forsaken. The Lord who came into the world, was surrounded by many empty souls who reached for the Lord, and the Lord who presented the word of God to his people, and lived to surrender his body, as example for the love of God, and his understanding for mankind, and the difficulties each, and every person faced, to find themselves alone, but then there was Jesus, fearless, enlightened, and all powerful, standing amoungst a fire of angels, who called his name, on the cross, to embrace the life of man, and to let all who witnessed his courage, to never fear life, as the world was for man, who continues fill the world with life, and God who stands before him, during each, and every trial, never having left this world, to stand alone! Never should a person feel alone, if one is to embrace the power of God, they to, should know why.......Always find the answers in God!!!

no one's parents understand them. this is of course another signature of the dreadful velocity of the rhythms of everyday life in late capitalism. as each new cultural outcropping and technology is snatched immediately into the jaws of the beast of capital, the youth are forced further from family and tradition, into crannies of culture, often virtual, which an older generation can have no hope of "understanding." The abyss widens.

It did touch my heart. Going through clinical depression and feel like no one cares. People say they are there for you but they are not--or just too busy with their own lives. Learning that God really is the only one I can count on, the only one who really cares.
