Words of Encouragement
for Sandwich Generation Senior Home Care Givers
The Lord is near.
Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
This photo reminds me of a river I used to live near. I would take a short break from caring for aging parents or active grandkids, walk to the water’s edge, lean against a near-by fence and look out at the sun-reflecting ripples in the water. It never failed to leave me with such a sense of peace. Of course, that feeling didn’t last long, but it was definitely nice.
Pauls’ words remind me constantly that, even in the midst of care giving needs, health crises, and financial difficulties, God offers us a peace that does last. When I fix my gaze on the “living water” that Jesus provides, and bring all my needs to Him in prayer with thanksgiving, He keeps filling me up with that peace that we will never understand but that is so encouraging!
Sandwich Generation senior home care-giving and grandparenting isn’t always easy. Sometimes things can become overwhelming for you. Those are the times we need God’s Word the most, yet it can be so difficult to find the time to read it. That’s one of the reasons I’m participating in Word-Filled Wednesdays, to provide us with a great resource for short inspirational Bible verses to encourage us all. For more lovely photos and verses this week, please visit All You Have To Give. I’m also participating in Wordless Wednesdays at 5 Minutes For Mom with even more great pix. 🙂
