A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD

Blessed are the Caregivers…

“For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it.” (Luke 9:24, HCSB)

Are you a caregiver?

If you claim Jesus as Lord you are!

Are you responsible for caring for someone who cannot care for themselves?

If you claim Jesus as Lord you are!

Are you called upon from time-to-time to financially, emotional, physically, and spiritually carry the burden and support for someone else?

If you claim Jesus as Lord you are!

If you claim Jesus as Lord then you already know that it’s not a walk in the park. It’s not really hard to make Jesus Lord of your life but what is hard is what you need to give up – your life. However, “So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don’t give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, we must work for the good of all, especially for those who belong to the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:9–10, HCSB)

For those who grow weary of carrying the burden of Jesus being the Lord of their life and all that goes with it the Prophet Isaiah provides insight into one phase of God’s reward. “He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless. Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:29–31, HCSB)

And finally the Apostle Paul reminds us that is by faith we need to have patience in God’s plan and timing for our lives. “Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6, HCSB)

We ARE caregivers because God first cared for us!

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE!
