{ Ultimate Caregiver }

"In this mortal life, each of us is going to experience pain in one form or another.
Pain may come from an accident or from a painful medical condition.
We may feel deep pain from the mourning that appropriately comes with
the loss of a loved one or the loss of affection from one we hold dear.
Pain may come from feeling lonely or depressed.
It often comes as a result of our disobedience to the commandments of God, but
it also comes to those who are doing all they can to keep their lives in line
with the example of the Savior."

"When we are experiencing pain, the caregiver is a very important part of the recovery process. Attentive doctors, nurses, therapists, a loving spouse, parents, children, and friends comfort us when we are ill and speed our recovery process. There are times when, no matter how independent we may be, we must entrust others with our care. We must surrender ourselves to them. Our caregivers are those who assist in the healing process.

The Lord is the ultimate caregiver.

We must surrender ourselves to the Lord.

In doing so, we give up whatever is causing our pain and

turn everything over to Him.

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee” (Ps. 55:22).

“And then may God grant unto you that your burdens may be light,

through the joy of his Son” (Alma 33:23).

Through faith and trust in the Lord and obedience to His counsel,

we make ourselves eligible to be partakers of the Atonement of Jesus Christ

so that one day we may return to live with Him."
