I will lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121: 1-2
Being a caregiver, in addition to working full time, can be to say the least sometimes a burden. I have found that most caregivers are unappreciated and taken for granted at times. But when praying on a particular difficult day, I suddenly looked at it from a different perspective. yes, care giving is difficult, and stressful, and even a burden at times. but it was what the Lord chose for me. so, I pray these verses a lot, and often., I mean really often… and I have learned how to be patient, show more compassion, and to be less selfish, .
Prayer for caregivers;
Dear Heavenly Father, when you called me to be a caregiver, I never thought it would be so difficult. Please help me to open my eyes to the opportunities that surround me. Help me, when I am over stressed to see this ministry as the blessing and gift that it can be. To serve others without being selfish, to be more compassionate, loving and patient. I pray for caregivers everywhere, that they may turn to you in difficult moments, and stay focused in Your Word, for strength and encouragement.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve others.
