In her Faith and Caregiving post this month, Veronica Badowski reminds us all of the importance of seeking support for caregivers includes leaning on our faith and accepting that we, too, are human. 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.
Romans 8:31-32 (GNT)
“…If God is for us, who can be against us? Certainly not God, who did not even keep back his own Son, but offered him for us all! He gave us his Son—will he not also freely give us all things?”
What comfort do you find in the above verse?
God was always reminding me to think positively, but too often, I yearned for immediate freedom from care giving. This impatient thinking only made me feel miserable, selfish, and depressed. When I thought about my desire to love my parents and serve God, I was able to reset my mood and enthusiasm returned. Once again, I was able to experience peace, trusting this was where the Lord wanted me to be right now.
Our Heavenly Father loves to hear our prayers, loves for us to just be in His presence asking for wisdom, strength, enthusiasm, and peace. He gave us His Son to die on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins. This proves He loves and cares for us; surely, He is more than willing to supply all our daily needs. Let us thank and praise Him often for His faithfulness.
Today, write a thank you note to God who is supplying your needs?
Father in Heaven, I praise you for Your unconditional love and give thanks for the times You bless me with positive thoughts and enthusiasm for my work as a caregiver. May I always remember that You are just a prayer away. Amen
