Days When No-one Is There For You

lonelinessHave you ever had a day when you feel lonely?

Have you ever had a day when you feel sad?

Have you ever had a day when all your close friends don’t seem to want to know?

I’m sure we’ve all had days when we could answer YES to all the above questions. But have you stopped to remember that even in days like these, you are not on your own because God is there for you, and He cares for you.

One of my favourite song from our Salvation Army songbook is the song Someone Cares (John Gowans), so please take a few moments to listen to the cornet solo of the same name played here by Yvonne Ferguson (Bellshill) and follow the words:

Do you sometimes feel that no one truly knows you,
And that no one understands or really cares?
Through his people, God himself is close beside you,
And through them he plans to answer all your prayers.
 
Someone cares, someone cares,
Someone knows your deepest need, your burden shares;
Someone cares, someone cares,
God himself will hear the whisper of your prayers.
 
Ours is not a distant God, remote, unfeeling,
Who is careless of our loneliness and pain,
Through the ministry of men he gives his healing,
In their dedicated hands brings hope again.
 
Someone cares, someone cares,
Someone knows your deepest need, your burden shares;
Someone cares, someone cares,
God himself will hear the whisper of your prayers.

Beautiful words, meaningful words, and words I can completely relate to, as I know someone does care about me.

Do you believe someone cares about you?

Hold onto the words of the above song as God does care about you and me.

  1. Oh Dorothy I can relate to that very much. You can be really lonely in a crowd. I find it hard especially hard when the band & songsters are not on duty then all the husbands & wife’s sit together and sometimes you sit in a row and nobody comes and sits beside you. You just feel no one cares. I just love the words of someone cares although can be emotional at times.

    1. Yes, I completely agree with you Margaret. The army can be difficult for those of us with no family there especially when all around us are families, long standing friendships. It can be particularly hard for those who don’t find it easy to socialise/mix with folk they don’t know very well.
