heartstring tuggers

It’s a lot easier to make a “buck” then to make a difference. God calls us to make a difference, to serve others, and to feed his needy sheep.

I once asked God, while praying, “How do you do it?  How do you handle prayer requests coming at you from all over the world, all day and night?”
I heard in my soul, “Because I am God and you are not!”

God gives us just a tiny sphere of influence because we are not God.

We need to allow our heartstrings to be tugged and respond to the nudging of the spirit.  To do our work with the knowledge that we are working for Him in all that we do and say.

If you don’t know God’s will for your life…. you were not on your knees listening!

First say, “Yes.”  Then ask, “What do you want me to do for you today?”

Nursing Chose Me  is filled with stories about patients that tug at our heartstrings, that teach us God’s priorities, and call us to serve.  Like the middle-aged man, behind closed doors, dying all alone because of the stench of his half-eaten face destroyed by progressive melanoma.  Or the elderly woman, devoid of social supports, with cavernous painful diabetic ulcers, hidden behind the time-consuming dressings.

Do you have a heartstring tugger you would like to share about how God worked in your nursing care?

Looking forward to hearing from you — comment below.

One thought on “heartstring tuggers

  1. God heals in his own way and in his own timing. He answers prayers for healing in one of four ways; miraculous, through medicine, giving grace and strength to endure, or bringing them home to God.
