Jesus Knows Me Well    by Janice Tindle

In my solitude I pray,
The pain is so crippling, so I lay,
The softness of the sheets touch my skin,
There is an excruciating fire that burns from within.

Jesus knows me well.

To his Father I pray,
So I can make it through this day,
I wait for help to come from the phone,
A doctor, a medicine, as I sit all alone.

Jesus knows me well.

I meditate on his life on earth,
There is nothing to compare with his rebirth,
None of us know what he knows in heaven,
We celebrate him with wine and bread unleavened.

But Jesus knows us well.

He sees the suffering and pain,
He has his Father’s Kingdom to reign,
He has proven his loyalty, down to the end,
He sees his subjects that he will soon mend.

Because Jesus knows.

  1. Janice beautiful and touching words. I know my disease has changed my faith. I still believe in God and know he is by my side holding me. I feel so lost sometimes. I have accepted the fact that he will not heal me but has answered the prayer that my hearing is still very good from The Meniere’s Disease. That was my fervent prayer when I was diagnosed.
