I had to connect and share what was on my heart when I saw our online ministry had surpassed 60,000 Caregivers connected to our webpage. Pure joy was my initial feeling followed by a deeper urgency to reach even more Caregivers in the name of Jesus! My mind cannot comprehend the number of children, young adults, and seniors who day in and day out dedicate their lives to the care of others. The task of Caregiver is not one for which to take lightly or with haste. It is a dedicated position for which God has only called very special ones to respond.
If you are among that chosen group of Caregivers today and you feel overwhelmed and weary, take refuge in knowing you are not alone. You belong to a army, one I like to call a special forces unit, for which God has hand picked to be His hands and feet for His children who cannot care for themselves. You are special and what you do is extraordinary. Please never forget that.
Jesus left us a powerful yet gentle comforter and supporter when He left the earth so long ago and we know this is the Holy Spirit. Allow the Holy Spirit to be your Caregiver and your spiritual help when no one else is there or can begin to understand what you feel or manage on a daily basis. Let the Comforter support you physically and mentally for He can do things through you that are humanly impossible. Open your heart and mind to what could happen if you allow the Holy Spirit to become your Caregiver and supernatural strength in this journey you are walking or maybe even some days, crawling.
My message for you today is there is strength in numbers. There is power when 2 or more come together before the throne of God so just imagine the power we have as 60,000+ when our prayers go up together. What an amazingly beautiful sound that is to the Father's ears and how much more will He bless and keep us.
