On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

Romans 15 13 joy and peace

Caregivers sometimes live from hope to hope. First, we hope the diagnosis is wrong. Then, if a second opinion confirms the first, we hope the treatments will work. If the medications fail, we hope for a good day. Finally, we hope for a gentle passing.

Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Caregivers are often sick at heart when their hopes are not fulfilled.

In the 8th chapter of Romans, Paul tells us that Christ is the hope of both Jews and Gentiles. In verse 13, he says that God is the source of hope. Belief in Christ, our hope, and God, the source of hope, can fill even the most heart sick caregiver with joy, peace, and abounding hope.

Blessings,
