Treasure Island

Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

He Cares


Cast all of your cares on Him
When troubles come your way
Lift up your eyes unto the hills
Then see a bright new day

Knows about your broken heart
Sees all your silent tears
Will be right there beside you
Stand by you through the years

Would never leave you all alone
Hands that's always opened wide
A comfort in the time of need
Be your Healer and your guide

Days can be so long and dreary
Seems it'll never come to an end
When it's more than you can bear
His Angels He will always send

    Yes, so true. Your verse is a comfort. Must share at my G+ page. I like encouraging people. Love the last stanza:
    ...Days can be so long and dreary
    Seems it'll never come to an end
    When it's more than you can bear

    Beautiful poem. Definitely he cares..He gives us strength to pass crucial times..if we think back, we can see many tough times we have crossed. It only strengthen us as we moves further...He send Angel, may be in form of person, or the encouraging words, or send messages through unknown person. Some times we just tell, it was a miraculous escape..I have experienced many many times...I loved the poem, especially the way you presented..
    Loved it. (Report) Reply

    I always reach out to Gods during normal as well as troubled time and sometime I try to find who has implanted this God seed in my mind for it to grow so wild, not letting me to go away from its shade. strange..very strange mind.. (Report) Reply

    This has been my experience so far. When we cast all our cares on Him, we feel so light! Hope the same power will protect us all through! This poem has such simple grace... so gentle in tone and soothing in spirit. It has the back up of conviction and flows from a heart fortified with Faith in Providence! ! (Report) Reply

    @ Unwritten Soul
    God is love and He cares for all of us as His Children. None of us are perfect.
    We all have some cleaning up to do in our lives. It is an ongoing process. It
    is when we acknowledge our wrongs and go on to be better individuals then
    we show our love for Him. Appreciate your honest comments. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes by only remember Him and His true loves that can soothe us a lot...
    You know, i am no good person..i am a commoner that do things like commoner do..
    I know i am no good always do wrong, but i know He always helping me many times
    No good i am but He still cares me a lot, sometimes feel ashamed of myself
    Because He cares me a lot but i am no good...i will find my way to be
    better because He...He cares me..though i am not good_Soul (Report) Reply

    God sits beside without a sound
    Oberserving only with perhaps a frown
    Raising not a hand to warn or be wary
    For free will bounds his good intentions
    We wade the bogs of life danger abound
    The plains of beasts and jungles full of howls
    He is step for step, tear for tear
    but is silent in his companionship, ask, or prayer.
    Only in us can we go to him, then toward reaching arms
    and shrieks of joy we will here him. (Report) Reply

    Very nice thought Pat.It's also in Hindu religion that if you can completely depend on God, He will be taking care of you.Wise write. (Report) Reply

It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
