Does Anyone Care?

I Peter 5:7

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Life is sometimes a lonely thing. When troubles pile on it is easy to fall into despair and assume that no one cares. Compounding this sense of alone-ness is the experience of many persons who are abandoned by their friends and family, sometimes through no fault of their own. The person may not even be aware of what they have done to merit such treatment.

Whether it is the circumstances of life or simply a state of mind that is captured by despair that prompts one to wonder about these things, the question as to whether anyone cares is a most troubling question to ask. The abject loneliness that leads to the question is one of the worst feelings one can experience.

The Bible answers that question by telling us we are never alone and that someone does, indeed, care. Even when one feels that no one in the world cares about them at all--which in all likelihood is not true--the Bible assures us that God cares about each of us individually. And He never leaves us alone.

Song: 'O How Much He Cares For Me' by Smitty Gatlin and the Oak Ridge Boys. This one is a classic from the old days of 'quartet music'...a black and white clip of the Oak Ridge when they were a Southern Gospel Quartet. This is as good as it gets.
