Inspired by . . . Hymns of Faith: Does Jesus Care?

God whispers in our pleasures but shouts in our pain. 
~ C.S. Lewis


Does Jesus care? is a question asked by the great majority of the population at some time in their lives. Frank E. Graeff, known to many as the "sunshine minister,"  explores this question in today's hymn, which he wrote during a time of severe physical agony.

When our pain is too great for mirth or song, when our fear is strong and the night closes in, when we fail and give in to temptations, when our heart breaks over the loss of a loved one, does Jesus care?

Oh, yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

Graeff wrote more than two hundred hymns but none more comforting than this one. May his words and the scriptural truths they are based on comfort you today.

Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. 
1 Peter 5:7

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. 
Matthew 28:20
