Most people in need of caregiving are part of an existing family that should be responsive. Different family members will meet needs in different ways. God’s plan for caregivers is summed up in the word repayment – God is giving you the opportunity to repay your family for the care you once received. This care is given through meeting the practical/physical needs or by providing protection for a friend or loved one.
God is just as concerned about you, the caregiver, as He is about the one placed in your care. If you have a sincere desire to help others, the tendency is to assume too much responsibility and to overdo! Thus, you, as God’s chief instrument of care, can become disappointed, depressed and defeated. To help with this, see the section “Not a Prison, but a Privlege” from the download below.
God desires to give you hope as you face life challenges, problems and difficult trials. The good news for us, God specializes in redemption and transformation. He takes that which was lost and restores it. He takes that which was dead and gives it life. He takes that which had no hope and rewrites its story. This is our God! As you pray today, ask God boldly to transform the thing inside you that you want to see changed forever!
“If a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God.”
1 Timothy 5:4
“And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
"For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.”
1 Peter 5:6-7
