The Lord is in Your Tomorrows

Dear Christian caregiver, the Lord has promised to always be with you. His presence in your life is a forever-promise. Your future and the future of your loved one for whom you are caring may be very uncertain, but you need not fear that future. The Lord is already in that future, dear caregiver. 

He will always take care of you, dear Christian caregiver. He will also always take care of your loved one for whom you are caring. God may choose to heal your loved on this earth. God, on the other hand, may at some future date decide to take your loved one home to heaven, as He took my dear husband home to heaven on January 2, 2011. Either way He is with you caring for your needs, and He is caring for the needs of your loved one.

Your future and the future of your loved one, dear caregiver, is in His hands; if you both have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior. He releases that future to you day by day and moment by moment. The Bible tells us not to worry about our tomorrows. (Check out Matthew 6:34 in the Bible.) He promise that He will never leave or forsake us. (Now check out Hebrews 13:5b.)

The difficulties and stresses of care-giving are overwhelming at times, but the Lord may be using your experiences to train you to focus on the present and not the future. He may be using your experiences to train you to focus on His Presence in your life.   


  1. Sharon, yes,I have been so aware of God's nearness during this caregiving and it is comforting to rely on Him. Two weeks ago my husband qualified for hospice and daily there are changes. I am so grateful to know the God that holds my future.

    I also apologize for any offense I may have caused you, it wasn't intentional. I admire your wisdom and courage. Janet

  2. Jan, I am so sorry to hear that your husband has entered the hospice phase of his life. I am so sorry for the changes. You will be in my prayers. Please keep me updated. I am puzzled as to why you thought you offended me. I assure you that you did not. Again you are in my prayers, Jan.
