Monday Prayer: A Caregiver’s Resolve
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
By God’s grace and the strength that the Holy
Spirit supplies, I resolve:
To look upon this time as a caregiver, whether short or long, as God’s appointment.
To consider it an honor to be the extension of His love to someone in need.
To do what I do from a thankful heart, with all my heart, as unto to the Lord.
To be quick to extend forgiveness to others, and to guard my heart against bitterness or resentment.
To maintain a quiet spirit that trusts God fully.
To seek those times, whenever possible, to take breaks, be refreshed, and “come aside to rest awhile.”
To choose joy, and not lose the gift of laughter.
To seek God’s strength in my weakness, to receive His mercies when I have fallen short, to draw upon His grace in my inadequacy, to receive His refreshing when I have grown weary, and to keep the eyes of faith upon Him in all I do.
My Monday Prayer
Father God, in all these ways equip me, change me, make and mold me. To resolve these things in my life seem so hard, maybe impossible—but with You all things are possible. May it be so…amen.
