It’s easy to talk about the joy of serving. But the truth is – serving someone, caring for them day in and day out is hard work. Always listening. Forever keeping watch.
Take comfort, caregiver. You are not alone. Every moment in the hours ahead, in every demanding situation you will face today, you have an active, resourceful partner, an ever-present, always-understanding, Compassionate Caregiver.
Be assured. There is not a single situation in which our Lord is not with you, strengthening you, empowering you.
Take just a moment to let your heart call on him. Draw on his peace and his wisdom. He’s waiting patiently to meet your need.
Help me remember, Lord, that you are with me. Amen.
