His Strength

Caregivers and their loved ones have lost so much in this life, but the Lord has promised to be their strength and song when they reach out to Him.  They also know this life is not the end of their story or of the story of their loved ones.  They know eternity is in their futures. 

In the meantime, however, they sometimes struggle with getting up each day and meeting that day’s challenges.  They know that they do not have the strength on their own to face their overwhelming challenges, and they know their strength must come from the Lord.  They know they need the Lord desperately.   

Joni Eareckson Tada is a well-known person in Christian circles.  She became a quadriplegic many years ago as a result of a swimming diving accident.  She talks about having some of these same feelings when she wakes up in the morning.  She shares that she finds her strength only at the cross.  She further points out that she and we all desperately need the Lord to make it through the hardships (sufferings) of this life.   

Dear Christian caregiver, click on the link below.  Listen to Joni inspire you with the subject of hope and needs met.  It is less than five minutes long.  It will bless your heart and encourage you, however.  In fact, you may just find yourself (like me) coming back to it over and over again.
