There Are No Accidents With God
As most of you readers know, I was my husband's caregiver for four and a half years. I lost him to a devastating neurological disease in early 2011. Recently I read a statement which has stuck in my mind. The statement was this: "Widowhood is not God's plan B for your life." Care-giving with all it's challenges and heartaches also was not God's plan B for my life. I was chosen by God for both care-giving and then later widowhood. They were both God perfect will and plan for my life. God's plan for my life is not what I would have chosen for myself, but it is God's first and best plan for my life.
God has chosen you as well for the noble task of care-giving, dear caregiver. I know it can be overwhelmingly discouraging at times, but God has chosen you for this. He has chosen you for this job to refine you and to grow you in your faith. He chosen you for this task to make you fall more and more in love with the Lord. Finally he has chosen you for this, so you can be a blessing to your loved one.
Recently I read a wonderful article online entitled "There are NO Accidents with God." This is difficult truth to accept at times, but it is a blessed and soft place to land when we do accept it. Read that wonderful article by clicking the link below.
