Someone Cares for YOU

While walking along the street one day thinking about the things that was happening in my life and wondering what I was going to do, how I was going to cope, I was given a piece of paper and told to read it by a complete stranger, so when I got on the bus home, I took the paper and unfolded it, and this is what it said.


He knows your present circumstances.  He knows your very thoughts.  And he is calling to you now. “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11.29).  Rest – real rest – from the burdens of life, is what Jesus Christ offers you.  Rest from fear and guilt, from worry and frustration, from loneliness and disappointment.

If you are struggling under life’s pressures.  He offers to bear your burdens with you: “Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:29.30).

If you are searching for peace of mind and soul.  He offers you is peace. “Peace I leave with you.  My peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” (John 14:27).

Yes, Jesus cares for you.  He god the son, became a man to redeem you from the consequences of sin.  In his 33 years on earth he suffered refection, abuse and cruelty.  He endured hunger, thirst and pain.  And he died upon the Cross of Calvary to fulfill God’s plan of salvation: “He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for  ou iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).  When he arose from the grave he triumphed over sin and death, promising all who will receive him: “Because I live, ye shall live also” (John 14:19).

You can be sure that this very moment Jesus cares for you and wants to meet your need.  For the risen Savior is both God and man: being man he understands your every need;being God he is able to deliver you.

Because Jesus lived upon earth as a man, he understands your feeling and need. We can all encounter all these by praying this simple prayer:

Lord, thank you for sending Jesus Christ to die for my sins and rise from the dead so that I can know your forgiveness and live with you forever.  Right now I ask Jesus Christ to be my Savior so that I can live as the special creation that you intended me to be“.

I found this piece of paper that was thrust into my hand by a perfect stranger a comfort, I keep it in my wallet and when I am feeling down and overwhelmed with life, I take it out and read it.  Once i have read it, I don’t feel as if I am alone anymore.

Thank you for letting me share this with you.  So when someone you don’t know pushs a piece of paper into your hand as you pass by them, take a look at it and read what it says, sometimes there is a wonderful message, just like the one I got.

To that stranger, I say thank you.
