Thoughts for Today
Are you a caregiver for a loved one? Or perhaps you will be in the future? Most caregivers find themselves dealing with a turmoil of emotions. Guilt . . . stress . . . confusion . . . anger . . . frustration . . . sadness. If you have not already experienced all this and more as a caregiver, you probably will.

Today's scripture reminds us to replace worrying with prayer. As a caregiver, if you pray once for peace, will that be enough? Probably not. Because as human beings we tend to take our focus off Jesus and focus on the storm—again and again. It's a day-by-day process. Sometimes a moment-by-moment process. When you feel that turmoil of stress or anger or guilt sweeping over you, take time to refocus on Jesus. "It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
