Daily Living Made Easier

 

One of the more difficult Sandwich Generation issues is dealing with grief and loss due to illness, hospitilization, or even hospice and death. During a prolonged season of suffering, your heart may sometimes feel like you are living in a desert. Too little time for the Word of God combined with too much overwhelming sorrow can lead you to join with the Psalmist as he wrote in Psalm 42:2,5-6…

 Encouraging Bible verses against the dry desert remind the Sandwich Generation to fix their eyes on God in the midst of grief and loss such as hospitilization or hospice

I love the hope that is found in these difficult, yet comforting Bible verses. Notice that even though he doesn't "feel" like all is well, he chooses to fix his eyes and his heart on God. Wise words and guidance for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, caring for elderly parents, raising children or babysitting grandchildren, perhaps dealing with special needs – difficult illnesses – or more.

P.S. You can find additional encouraging and uplifting Bible verses and pictures, so comforting for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, by popping over to visit Internet Cafe Devotions. And…

  1. Blessings Kaye… yes, these are WISE words and words of comfort and encouragement. HOPE in GOD!

    Sadly this is how it gets when we are in the midst of grief or loss just being in this Sandwich Generation as you write. Your message is so true and heart warming. Knowing that we can get out of this desert place… and soak in His Living Water!

    God knows where we are in this season of our lives and just what we need to see life with HOPE and return to JOY, like special words from a friend and sister in Christ, when they visit and leave some endearing words… and you find another common bond like LOVING FALL! That was so special. Praying that we can fix our eyes and heart on God.

    EnJOY WFW and a wonderful week with your grandkids! They are so special.

He’s a great writer and has great insights. Check out his posts at http://blogs.vnsny.org/author/vcorso/
