1 Peter 5 verse 7: Casting ALL your care upon HIM; for HE careth for you.
I was looking over some correspondence from a friend of many years who had been through deep sorrow following a family tragedy. This is what he wrote: It is not wrong to sigh and groan at times. Tell the Father about your misery and problems - we are guaranteed a listening ear, and we are assured of a response. Although the Lord allows His own to experience times of suffering, there is always a good reason, and they are always accompanied by sympathy and deliverance.
There’s not a secret sigh we breathe,
But meets the ear Divine,
And every cross bears light beneath
The Shadow, Lord, of Thine.
And God heard their groaning and God remembered His covenant with Isaac and Jacob. Exodus 2 verse 24.
