Nurses (and friends), I hope you will join us as we discuss compassionate caring within the nursing profession, based on the 23rd Psalm.

    I had lost my compassion while working in a maximum security prison for 5 years. I knew I had to get out of that job. I have now been working in a ED for 11 years and at times I still find myself slipping back into my old life. I work with another Christian and I thinking about asking him to be an accountability partner to remind me to be more Christ like when he sees my spoken or body language non Christ like.

      Kevin, this is Cindy, a fellow Christian nurse, the speaker from the radio program on 1/14/2015. I so appreciate your openness in your post. Yes, as Christians, we all have days that we react in ways less than admirable. Yet, God in His mercy and grace does not expect perfection, but obedience. And part of that obedience depends on us clearly hearing God’s voice and knowing our Heavenly Father’s pleasure and will. I’m so glad to hear you are seeking an accountability partner at work. I would remind you of a few precious treasures from Scripture to support your efforts: “Thou Art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11). Remember that you are the only Jesus that some people will ever see, so represent our King as His proud ambassador. Another treasure I would share that simply reminds us that living as a believer is a process: “For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith, goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control, and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (II Peter 1:5-8, New International Version). Thanks again for sharing, and I hope you will share the love of Jesus with others, everywhere you go. Try to find a Nurses Christian Fellowship local chapter and get involved: is the website. As nurses, we need each other!
