God's Strength in Our Weakness
Does the challenges of care-giving seem over whelming at times, dear caregiver? Do you feel inadequate for the task? Do you ever ask "why?" when you see your loved one struggle and perhaps decline in his or her health? Do you ever wonder why God has laid this burden on you or your loved one's life?
Know that the work you are doing is noble work, dear caregiver. Know that God is using you as His "mighty warrior." in this challenging but wonderful work of care-giving that you are doing in His kingdom. Know that He will use even the difficult moments to refine and grow you. Know that God's grace is sufficient, as we talked about in our last post.
In the Old Testament of the Bible God assigned a man named Gideon a task for which he felt very unqualified. He asked the "why?" question as well, and he tried to make excuses for doing the task that called him to do. He had to learn the secret of finding his strength in the Lord and not in himself. In fact, Gideon learned that when he was weak, God's power shows through the strongest.
I have another blog called "Moments with God." It is a devotional blog. Click on the link below and it will bring you to a post at this blog which tells the story about this man,Gideon. I think you will identify with Gideon in many ways, dear caregiver!
