Whose Gonna Carry Me?

Sometimes caregiving can just simply be overwhelming. Nothing in particular has to be happening, the tired just comes. We don't get a "weekend" away from our job. While the rest of the world celebrates and enjoys paid vacation days and holidays our days all look the same. Then comes the tired.

The caregiver can't put in for a day off, who would they ask? And taking a day to at least relax the schedule a bit can bring a fear that you're not caregiving enough. Sometimes there's just no break! Sometimes we need to be carried.

Sometimes it can see very far away, however, God is the caregiver's caregiver! On days when I need to be carried through (for no reason in particular) He will take care of me! Isaiah 40:11 says it this way:

Like a shepherd He will tend His flock,
In His arm He will gather lambs
and carry them in His bosom;
He will gently lead the nursing ewes.

Maybe you don't need to be carried today, if not stick this verse on your fridge so you'll have it on the days you will need to be reminded that He carries us! Make this your resting spot today - He is your caregiver; He will carry you through.
