Caregiver support comes in many ways. So many of the caregivers I speak to every day have a sense of hopelessness. Many feel alone. It is in these times of struggle and challenge… many family caregivers rely on their faith to get them through the difficult times.
I am blessed to have Veronica Badowski, author of,Treading Water with God, Lessons in Love While Care Giving, to be a regular contributor for this site. I hope you will find her posts inspiring and comforting.
SHORT BIBLE STUDY
Romans 8:31b-32 (NIV)
“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”
What comfort is found in the above verse?
God always reminded me to think positively. But still, too often I wished for my freedom from the commitment. This impatient thinking only made me feel miserable, selfish, and depressed. Instead, when I thought about how I wanted to love my parents and serve God, I was able to reset my mood as well. Whenever I embraced this work and decided I was where the Lord wanted me to be right now… my restless spirit became calmer.
Ask your Heavenly Father for… wisdom, strength, enthusiasm, and peace as you watch over the person you care for. He gave His own dear Son our Lord Jesus to die on a cross for your sins, so you can be sure He loves and cares for you. Be patient. He is working behind the scenes in your favor, and He always knows what is best. Have faith; God will supply all your needs as you work as a caregiver.
What is your most pressing need today?
Dear Father in Heaven, it is a comfort to know You love the person I care for and me. Thank you each day for supplying us with good and worthy gifts. Amen.
