Heartaches

There are things that happen to all of us that just can't seem to be fixed. One of the hardest of these is broken relationships. Because of some broken relationships, there is a constant ache in my heart. This morning, I was hurting. I couldn't go to church this morning because my grandson is sick and his Mommy is at work so I was listening to a service online. Just when I thought my heart would break in two, the congregation sang:

No One Ever Cared Like Jesus

I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus,
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true.
I would tell you how
He changed my life completely;
He did something no other friend could do.

Chorus:
No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There's no other friend so kind as He.
No one else could take the sin
And darkness from me;
O how much He cared for me.


All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me;
All my heart was full of misery and woe,
Jesus placed His strong arms about me
And He led me in the way I ought to go.


Ev'ry day He comes to me with new assurance;
More and more I understand His word of love.
But I'll never know just why He came to save me,
Till someday I see His blessed face above.


What a wonderful, wonderful truth and what a comfort.

"Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
Hebrews 13:5
