God’s Care

My mother is now 87 years old. Several years ago, she lost hearing in both of her ears. She does not wear hearing aids. But recently she told me and my family that every day she heard a men’s choir sing the old hymn, “Onward, Christian Soldiers.”
Shortly after that, my mother became ill and was in the hospital. Many Christians visited her and prayed for her. After this, my mother realized that the music she heard and her Christian friends were signs that God cared for her.
Our Bible Reading today is a prayer of David. People were attacking David. He wanted to know that God still loved him. In verse 17a, David said, “Lord, show me a sign that you care for me.”
Sometimes we may face sickness, family problems, financial problems, or death. We may feel very discouraged and alone. During those hard times, we can know that God is with us and cares for us.
Don’t forget that God cares for you today!
