As a caregiver there are times when you feel totally alone, even if there are others around. Perhaps you feel uncertain about a new procedure. Or you’re facing one of those crisis moments when you simply don’t know what to do.
You have a resource. Just for a moment, let your heart grow quiet. Slow your breathing. Without words, if possible, and without a shred of shame, admit your uncertainty. Open your hands and your heart. Begin to draw from the deep reservoir of our loving Father’s vast resources. Experience his quieting presence. Let him fill you with a stillness of heart and a strong reassuring confidence.
Coming to a place of inner quiet is not some mental trickery. It is a weary soul’s admission that our heart can only find the deep levels of inner peace and wisdom we need when we allow our Lord to quiet our inner storms and uncertainties.
Don’t settle for just a sip of God’s provision. He offers the thirsty soul an inexhaustible well that will never run dry. Drink deeply. Drink often.
