GOD LOVES THE CAREGIVERS
by Mariane Holbrook
You wake up every morning and it seems you haven't slept.
You know another day has dawned, a day you must accept.
Your loved one in that sterile room is waiting for you now;
You know that you'll get through the day, but still you're wondering how.
For weeks you've made that anxious trip to try to ease her pain.
You pray each visit that you make will not be made in vain.
You see her suffer, hold her tight, and wipe away her tears.
You tell her Jesus loves her and can calm her mounting fears.
You hold her hand, begin to pray and soon you hear God's voice,
"My children, I am here and though it seems you have no choice,
Your pleas aren't falling on deaf ears, for I've known suffering, too;
I suffered on that cross to give eternal life to you.
"So trust in me, I'll never give you more than you can bear;
I see my child who's hurting and my child who's giving care.
I've wrapped my arms around you both, and I will hold you near;
One day it will be over and the pain will disappear."
God has a special love for those who minister and care,
When life seems very hard for you and sometimes seems unfair.
One day will be Awards Day and He'll show the prize you'll claim
And heaven will erupt in cheers, when God calls out your name.

Mariane, I am so glad that God loves caregivers. I become discouraged at times, giving care to my sister, who has Alzheimer's. I tell myself "it could be ME who has the disease." But instead God has given me the privilege of caring for one of His dear children, who gave her life in service for Him, in India...Oh God, give me patience and understanding...Thanks so much, Mariane for blessing me...And I know you know PAIN, so I ask God to comfort you and pour down His grace on you...Blessings, your friend, Helen.

Oh, Mariane, this hits home for me right now. It's a lonely place to be sitting in that caregiving place watching and waiting. Thanks for reminding me that God is mindful of what caregivers go through as well.
