called

We’re nurses. Every day is spent with someone whose life is in crisis — be it pain, uncertainty, or disarray.  The meds, assessments, treatments and paperwork is daunting, but we survive.  Watching the emotional and physical distress of others is the tough part.

We’re on the front lines, holding hands, encouraging, comforting, wiping sweat and secretions, and often crying with our patients and their family.

And when we go home drained?  We know it was a good day.

We were at the right place at the right time.

Nurses are “called” to this art of compassion by God!

Caregivers — are people who say, “Yes, I will do what needs to be done to help another human being who can’t care for themselves.”  To be willing to humble themselves to do what can be very undesirable work.

Nurses — are caregivers who commit time and effort to study, then apply accumulated nursing and medical knowledge to provide the highest quality of care to patients.  Nursing is holistic by nature. Nurses practice with the understanding that an individual’s experience of wellness and illness is impacted by the psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual aspects of a person’s life.  This takes education, practice, insight, and commitment to excellence.

Nurses are chosen, one-by-one, to serve as God’s hands and feet.

“Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.” (John 13:14, NIV)

“Then the King will say.. Come, you who are blessed.. For I was sick and you looked after me..” and his disciples asked him when they cared for him when he was sick and Jesus responded, ” I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:34-40, NIV)

“Each one should give whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in it’s various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10, NIV).
