"The Lord has been mindful  of us; he will bless us"   Psalm 115:12

Yes, Jehovah has thought of us, provided for us, comforted us, delivered us and guided us. In all the movements of His providence He has been mindful of us, never overlooking our mean affairs. His mind has been full of us - that is the other form of the word "mindful".......

The next sentence is a logical inference from the former one. Since God is unchangeable, He will continue to be mindful of us in the future as He has been in the past.....He will bless us after His own divine manner, and that for ever and ever.

HELD IN HIS LOVE

When I am lonely and prone to despair I look to Jesus - I know He is there;
Able and willing my prayer to receive, more ready to help than I to believe.

Held in His love all the day through; serving Him here, constant and true.
Always believing that jesus is near, my ready Helper, I never need fear.

Friends may forsake me and cast me away; Jesus has told me "I'm with you alway".
So in His promises I will abide for He is faithful my footsteps to guide.

When I am tempted on self to rely my will to conquer most surely will die;
But if I follow the path Jesus trod then I shall know I am walking with God.

Lord, I have promised to be wholly thine; fashion my will for Thy purpose divine.
Be round about me when trials assail, then I am certain that I shall prevail.
