In 1906, a young woman named Adelaide A. Pollard felt called to the mission field in Africa - but struggled to raise funds. At a service one evening, she heard someone reference Jeremiah 18 and state, "Have Thy Own Way." 

While disappointment over not going abroad as a missionary, weighed heavily on her heart, the hymn HAVE THY OWN WAY that Adelaide penned during that time continues to touch the lives of uncounted millions around the world - including me. 


Rosenberg is hope chauffeuring you is a frail old what's going on with. We are glad to have you as part of this program is nothing like this program in total billed window in all the world.

It is eight 589-8848 eight 888-589-8840 Servo for a little early morning where I am. We got little snow on the ground in Montana and it's a beautiful day shaping up to be. If you like snow on the ground and I did this, is to just warn you up front were going into a difficult time of year for family caregivers.

It is sometimes called the Bermuda triangle. The holidays can be a very tough time for caregivers so brace yourself. Let's get stronger and healthier together. Must get anchored. As we go through the journey of of of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.

All the above, it is just a difficult time and it there's a lot of tradition and sentiment and nostalgia and pressure to do this and re-create this and you feel guilty at all those kinds of things to give you heads up that is coming and let's stay anchored. That's what I do a lot of the things that I do on this program the hymns and so forth. Because those little tunes help us remember what is important. What is what is solid ground, if you will, family caregivers take the brunt of a lot of things, but only if you also have a new article out of the Chicago Tribune and I things for me and some other papers as well and it's titled it's not that actual title here.

The menu or venue shouldn't define Thanksgiving for caregivers menu or venue should not define Thanksgiving, so it doesn't matter where you are. You may be spending Thanksgiving at the hospital.

I've done you may be just wanted to may just be you. You may put all this pressure on yourself to go would have this elaborate Thanksgiving meal or you can just go to waffle house you can be thankful no matter what no matter where it's really important to remember that for us.

We don't have to allow the sentiment and the holiday season to dictate how we are going to respond that we have to have this this and this and this before we can be grateful when be grateful in the middle of what Scripture tells us in. So if you want to go check that article out is that Chicago Tribune and their commentaries, their bids and I appreciate them running this piece and you know that this is something that a lot of caregivers are going to struggle with and it's when dealing with. And here I give a quote from it when dealing with impairments like Alzheimer's, traumatic brain injuries, mental illness or addictions. Countless caregivers push themselves to extremes to appease the disease. Words that erupt from an impaired mind can leave devastating wounds on those who serve feelings get hurt when disease affected nostalgia collides with the caregivers fear and guilt regardless of what others demand dressing can come from a box cranberry sauce out of a can still taste lumps and mashed potatoes are not carnal sins. Gratitude divides the Thanksgiving holiday, not the menu, not the venue. So check that out and will will traveling to that later on website and hope for the I was go over to the caregiver keyboard, caregiver, keyboard, and I will play him fully is probably going to be very familiar with.

There's a line in the third stanza. This clinical lattice is caregivers see if you know the Sim you know that him 885 8840 888-589-8840 in the Scripture. This comes from is Jeremiah 18 one through six and the lady wrote this. Her name was Natalie Potter Pollard Ellie Pollard and she desperately wanted to go to Africa on a mission trip and she was struggling with this and she went to prayer meeting that nighters, as is the story goes that she was having a hard time raising the funds forward, and so forth and somebody mentioned the wetlands later became the title of this him that his been around since the early 1900s and really touched a lot of lives but this is the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and a lot of things that you would not going to deal with this caregivers unifying the heart cry that we deal with this caregivers is going to be in Jeremiah Lamentations in the book of Jeremiah having the heat was often called the weeping prophet and you can find a lot of these things faces the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah and he said, arise, go down to the potter's house and there I will make you hear my words that I went down to the potter's house and saw that he was working at the wheel, but the vessel that he was making from Clay was spoiled by the potter's hand, so he made it over reworking it and make it into another part that seemed good to him than the word of the Lord came to me, O house of Israel cannot not do with you as this potter does, says the Lord. Look carefully as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are you in my life.

Maybe that passage pretty descriptive and it was is interest. Interesting how God uses sometimes the regular the Monday the common to drive home a, uncommon truth in principle a picture of what he's doing in our lives. The vessel that he was making from Clay was spoiled by the potter's hand with basically the potter looked at it did like it in and busted it back up a bridge reshaped and started over again and and we did it ever watched somebody working at Pottersville is fascinating.

It's is truly fascinates the same thing on watching somebody blow glass you with withered with the dude I love every time of the shows on the Discovery Channel's like that and you see these guys working making glass and in this lease. These works of art and how they do this it it's really astonishing. Is it any less astonishing to think about your own life and what's going on with you as a caregiver as an individual that these things that the fire that you're in right now is shaping you that the centrifugal force of the wheel is spinning you around and it's causing you to feel disoriented and all kinds of things. But did you ever think that maybe there's something else going on that you just can't see, and it always comes down to trust and that's what this particular humus about today stressed and there's a there's a line in the third verse that is particularly meaningful to me as as I journey on this thing and I'll give you a taste of wounded and weary, help me operate the field limiting weary today.

If you been a caregiver for any period of time you want to do for there is a path through this there is strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow. This is hope for the care Mrs. Peter Rosenberger.

This is the show for you as a family caregiver 888-589-8840 888-589-8040. If you notice him if just one way and only thing is going on your life will be right back. American family radio this so glad that you are with this 888-589-8840 888-589-8843 will be a part of the program.

If you know the him that we did just as a reminder, here you know that him 888-589-8840 that will read you Scripture were that him comes from Judge Jeremiah 8 of Jeremiah 18 one through six, read it out of the reading of the message God told Jeremiah up on your feet go to the potter's house. When you get there I'll tell you what to say someone to the potter's house, and sure enough of that shirt. The potter was there working waiters will whatever the pot potter was working on turned out badly sometimes happens when you're working with clay. The potter would simply start over and use the same Clay to make another pot.

Then God's message came to me.

Can't I do, just as the potter does people of Israel, God's decree. Watch this potter in the same way that this potter works is Clay I work on you people of Israel at any moment.

I may decide to pull up a people or country by the roots and get rid of them.

But if they repent of their wicked lives. I will think twice and start over with another time I might decide to plan a people or country. But if they don't cooperate. He won't listen to me now, think again.

You give up on the plans I have for them. So it was interesting picture that God sent Jeremiah to to do to see and to experience and then to use that is a truth communicate what is God doing this.

Who is God and what is he doing and this is this is the principle that we can take in our own life as we are struggling along this journey is caregivers that we somehow want to yell out from the potter's wheel. Hey, we don't like this, we want to do this a different way and what does that say about us was that say about our journey. Do we trust do we trust and that's what this hymn is all about. I love this him and lessee I want to go to Maryland and Illinois limits Maryland. Is that right mind that I get that right is it Maryland yet. Well, good morning are you doing this morning Marilyn I will help me on your bill about this hymn. Do you know this hymn, I think have that only have that only now at the potter.

I am the clay. Mold me after that will why am waiting, yielded and steals still did you grow up. Listen to this hymn is that a new him to you or what now I like him but I love you too and I talk about that a lot on the on this program because these hymns like it.

I consider the story about Adelaide who wrote this, she was struggling. She wanted to go on a mission trip and she was struggling raising the funding and all this kind of stuff and and she went to this prayer meeting that night she heard somebody say have have that only she wrote that down and subsequently how many millions of people have been strengthened and encouraged and redirected to Christ.

Because of this hymn, and so it it it goes to the point of of we can't script this out, but we can trust the one who is working through all these things with his sovereignty with his playing with his prophets and and that that's the beauty of the seat these hymns as they reflect lifestyles and journeys of people who have walked down this path were not having to cover forage ourselves for this and so I love that it I love that third verse is this have that only Lord have that only wounded and weary, help me operate your felt wounded and weary, Marilyn, all I saw when it winded when the belief best way. What are you preparing to do Thanksgiving and then for Christmas this year. This may more comfortable about my myself that no loan no cloud and all I lack my caregiver that's that's meaningful to you. I'm glad that the reaching out and inviting you to come over and I know this is going to be a very difficult season for you there's there's no way around it. It is going to be difficult for you and appreciate you sharing it because you're not alone on this. A lot of people are going to the season. I've had scholars come in and share levels of loss over the last many months, and so forth. In these states of Thanksgiving come up in or the anniversary of their husbands, passing or otherwise passing her child, or so forth. I try to write these things down so that on that day I get a note in remember to lift you guys and praying to him asking for others to do the same thing. So on December 22. Let's make a note of and let's lift up Marilyn and prayers as that's going to be a hard day, these things are hard to remember in an commemorate and and yet we also rejoice that that she is trusting Christ with this and that his hand is on her in this. The fourth verses have that only Lord have done away hold over my being absolute sway fill with us. He'll also see Christ only, always living in me is a great verse to hang onto. During these times is that Marilyn and I know that all now. No I think now I don't have any gnosis. Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted. We have a hard time understanding the concept of morning were so busy demanding that God do something to make us feel better, we rage out or we despair but we kept him well and that that's that's left for their support. We get to where you just remarked where we just grieve over but we were not grieving as those in the hope that we are grieving.

We are morning edits in that morning that you that the comfort is there it doesn't it it it's almost counterintuitive because we want to feel better in our society.

Everything is about feeling better and as we see the brokenness in the woundedness of this world.

We recognize it or not, I feel better about these things but we can be stronger and we can be better in it. As we trust God with it that he's redeeming ascriptions is all of creation is groaning and I look out where I live up here the Rockies in Montana. We got a new snowfall and it's absolutely exquisite is so beautiful and as I look at all that pristine beauty.

I also recognize that every bit of that is groaning for the redemption that's waiting that Christ is going to do what we redeems all of this.

It's all groaning and the Holy Spirit groans on our behalf and and it's okay to grieve.

It's okay to mourn.

In fact, it's it we were called to do the six to mourn over the brokenness of this but in that there were comforted knowing that he who began a good work is faithful to complete it to the day of Christ Jesus is sounds like that's exactly where you stand Marilyn this morning that Jeremiah grieving but not like those who have no hope.

And that is such a great model for for the rest of us right now and all that one day.

Not after I met in God's perfect timing, and my black all the more you got it, doubt they'll even black and and so I thankful everything fell. I know mold me and make me after that will while I am waiting, yielded and still sounds like you.

That sounds like your prayer Marilyn I want you to know how much I appreciate this is Martha stem December 22 W husbands name light, Lloyd, one of my favorite people in the entire world was amending Lloyd and I will I will put this down here in Maryland. Happy Thanksgiving. You have a lot to be grateful for your grieving but happy Thanksgiving to you and thank you for calling. Thank you for sharing your heart hard yes ma'am yes ma'am. Thank you so much Mrs. Peter Rosenberg Hopefully caregiver. This is the show for you as a family caregivers make better cared less of the show is all about how to stay healthy out of our hearts to enter spiritually, our bodies to get more to go in your calls. 888-589-8840 will be right back.

Hopefully caregiver your American family radio this Rosenberg this is the show for you as a family caregiver healthy caregivers make better caregivers. It's all about helping caregiver stay healthy and strong as you take care of someone who is not. 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 hey I gotta ask you something here you don't mind, you've heard about all these shipments that are the block out that the backlog of of everything going on with the ships and so forth.

Well, we've had a bit of a challenge with that us as well with the prosthetic limb outreach. We found it many years ago when Gracie lost her leg.

She wanted to be able to help her fellow entities. We've had a howl of supplies liner sleeve's feet, knees, pallets, adapters, connectors all the stuff and we been struggling to get this out is that all kinds of drama getting this on and we finally been able to work this out the percentage by air, not by C because the courts are so backlogged with everything and they need it now sits little bit more expensive. You would help us be a part of that devotee.

The number I'm just going to just trust the Lord to bring in week but had made the decision to go ahead and just do it because we need to get this to them and you can go out to hopefully It will take you to the study with homepage stay with hope is the prosaic sponsor of everything we do and you can go out be a part of that stating with or hopefully which everyone just click on the giving tab and you can designate that to go to shipping the supplies over there. They need him letters and sleeps particularly and these are things that you would've when an amputee has a prosthesis, they wear liner over the residual limb of the amputated limb and then that fits into the socket that is made on site weekly supply resin for them to make the socket over there in West Africa and and then you have a sleeve skull suspension sleep.

It it it it connects the lamb to the person's leg goes over the latter increase that section you not to wear belts and things such as that.

So if you want to be a part of that go out to stating with you can see the devices we make them have a prosthetic limb recycling program we do with inmates in prison and they volunteer to do this and will take you slims it come from all of the country they go to the local prison in Arizona where used to be in Tennessee where we live, but moved out to Arizona as part of the group of prisons run by core civic and they these inmates will volunteer to disassemble the force we can recycle the various parts of the feet needs the pilots support for Gracie has given some of her old limbs that she's because amputees go through a lot of different limbs over the course of their life. Particular children and so were always leading pediatric components, but you can help a ship that over there today and I would ask for your help on that and I also wanted to before we get back to the phone lines I wanted to say something that struck me as lotto was listening to a lot of the commentary going on about the Cal Rittenhouse trial in America to go down the path that a lot of people do, but I heard one.

One commentator, Jonathan Turley, I believe it was that this is a constitutional lawyer, Prof. Georgetown and was told that the jury and what the purpose of the jury is in and I believe that it was a reference Supreme Court justice who many many years ago. Talked about the jury and what they do and and the importance of them and he said 12 people stood between Cal Rittenhouse and the government 12 people stood between Cal Rittenhouse in the media in the mob and everything else that's what juries do they stay between the mob so that there's not mob justice extent between the government so the government just doesn't get heavy-handed and they deliberated at the, the evidence and look at it and arrive at a conclusion and then the conclusion is the law. Berg as far as this person's fate that they may choose to allow this person to go on to receive the punishment that is recommended by the government or whatever, but in this particular case when the jurors but what he said 12 people stood between that individual between Cal Rittenhouse in the mob and the media in the government and everything else and evaluated the case on its merits when he said that phrase I couldn't use me I couldn't help but think about. We have one me, who stands between us and the eternal fires of hell. But in our case, we plead guilty. There is no courtroom drama going on if you want to somehow argue your case before the Almighty, that is a very dangerous place to go but because of what Christ is done, we plead guilty we go straight to execution and we trust his execution on our behalf. One thing Christ stands between us and in eternity in hell, it was just such a picture of it was a soul that I was like I just I don't I just couldn't help with the think about that picture of of the gospel of that we have one man who does this, that we are not left to have to plead her case before the Almighty because if I do plead my case before of of Bob merits before God, I'm in real trouble I'm in real trouble and I don't know anyone else who wouldn't be, and so that's that's the gospel that has nothing to do with anything else. We are talking about, but I wanted to just share that observation. 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 and I I'm not sure the name here who it is that this is but good morning this is Peter, is this is a silo okay program will think you deep by the radio on. Okay a little bit ago but that's okay that's okay with how you doing this morning hard hearing turned up.

I that's okay it it it happens. How are you doing today well I woke up to your program and get to know somebody and that found one of my favorites. Although my life and except God is with me every day and I want you to know that just because you live by yourself. You can't witness for God that people come here. I've had a blessed and all kinds of people sharing with him their love for you and hard and so I'm blessed in so many I don't know how much longer God has blessed for me not to him to walk through me interested how how is this some houses something meaningful to you over the years. Well I will want at one time in my life. I was going my way and the church that I go to waste thing this so a lot of time and then one day I realized that it was howling his way and I didn't realize exactly what was going to come because I thought that I had loved young man going to marry and God intervened in my life and put me. The young man and I didn't even know an American preacher, God for 40 years before he went on to heaven to be with him and what God did for me and having his own way and not in a blessed and all the rest in this song just said everything she thought I didn't know what was going on in my life to changes that took place that he had his way with Myla ago that eight years old. I gave myself the Lord. I didn't grow. I just went along with my own way had him in my heart that God has been so good to me and blessed me in so many ways and I just want you know that your your program this morning has blessed me words list very very gracious of you to say hello. I love doing this, you know, when you put out there over the airwaves. You never know who's listening. We have listeners and prisons.

We have listeners, hospitals and hospice living alone like you are and you never know when you just put it out there, but there's something that happens when you play one of these old familiar hymns and and I've had a member last week I've had a lady called and he was 30 did not know the him he did not grow up listening to it and she's she's being introduced. These hymns for the first time on this program and and and that's which breaks my heart because it but it also is is is grateful that were able to do that but it's it's it shows that we've really done a disservice to a lot of people in this country that we have not reminded them pass these things along on why this is important. Why is this hymn important you know, just play, just those just that's just one half measures and people. People it takes him back to their childhood to take some back to you when you were struggling with you. You were you thought you love this one fell in that this would work it out in the Lord shows you to submit it to somebody different things that connect our lives. This is the soundtrack to so many of our lives and we can remember where we were with this particular hymn was played or whatever and and and I II want to continue doing this so I thank you that you validate that and that you love these things into what he got played for Thanksgiving out well almost.

I don't know what I'll feel like going and how they Thanksgiving with her family.

There are here and my children live a long way off and not able to comment God daily Lord will be with me and I'll be happy, I'm happy to hear about my sale and not come back at him many times I just going first and that so it really made me help me operate power, all power, surely is the text means you save you is that there verse. Thank you for being such an encouragement to me this morning appreciate this and I want you to have a fabulous day thinking being a blessing to me.

Appreciate you call very much break this Peter Rosenberg this is hope for the caregiver this so for you as a family caregiver right back. I dispute. Rosenberg is never helped somebody walk the first time I've had that privilege many times through our organization. Standing with hope when my wife Gracie gave up both of her legs follow this horrible Rick that she had as a teenager and she try to save them for years and if it just wouldn't work out. And finally she relinquished him and thought wow this is that I'm not happy legs anymore. What can God do with that and then she had this vision for using prosthetic limbs as a means of sharing the gospel to put legs on her fellow amputees and that's what we been doing now since 2005 was standing with hope. We work in the West African country of Ghana and you can be a part of that through supplies through supporting team members through supporting the work that were doing over there, you can designate a limb. There's all kinds of ways that you can be a part of giving the gift that keeps on walking and standing with would you take a moment ago understanding with and see how you can give they go walking and leaping and praising God.

You could be a part of little back to hope for the caregiver.

This Peter Rosenberg this is a program for you as a family caregiver 880-589-8840 hey listen I love that song from Keith Green. The DC DC is very blessed to have folks that check on her and showed him his window. Are there folks around you that you can check in on just just to let them know that you there and you may not be a caregiver anymore, but you find the show meaningful about asking to take on someone else's journey on just simply asking you to check on and let them know that they are seen in their loved in their care for. We can all be a source of great blessing to many people. I've found that one of the best ways for us as caregivers is to stay strong and healthy for ourselves is to express and share the things that were learning with others and be a source of comfort others. We don't have to take on the responsibility but it cost you you know very little to just ask somebody how they'd listen to and ask how they're feeling, so check on them and and it's it's a wonderful opportunity to do that here Thanksgiving so they fit. I was go to one of my long-time blisters and callers here that I just am grateful for Homer and Oklahoma Homer good morning how you feel. It are well wondering where he bit undaunted and thank you for what you're doing and Marilyn's earlier callers words really resonated.

They didn't integrate him, though wounded and weary, help me operate power, all power, surely is then touch me and heal me, Savior, and a great great learning how how how important is this something to you over your life. Homer know very important.

Among the many great and Pollard certainly among the greatest writers demonstrating God's mercies being present in pain. I apply that understanding with helping many as best I can. While recognizing my own weaknesses. Leaderless is interesting.

The back story of this is that she was struggling because she's trying to raise money to go to Africa on the mission field, but this hymn has done more to point people to Christ than anything she could've ever done and she wrote this out of that struggle with. I think cost what it what a teachable moment that is that you are I just I it's it's hard to it's it's really hard to wrap your mind around how God can take these these moments we think are so filled with confusion or frustration. Everything else and then flip it in such a powerful way that it the impact will be felt for who knows how long had for for who knows how many millions of people including you and me and Homer, I thank you for that I thank you for that encouragement of the and and that you listen I know that you're out there and it means a lot. Sometimes I sometimes at home or when you're at what I'm doing the program because I just look at the wall and only now got I'm not.

I'm not looking at it audience. Just look at all and so I visualize all the folks that are out there that that regular call with that. I know their listing. It means a lot that you're there. Homer really does well appreciate that without walls we could not have acoustics and share real quick. Jeremiah 33 three sure Pollard grant writer understood that God does reveal wondrous things and often times born out of pain so anywhere is with Marilyn.

I look forward to one day seeing my loved ones rejoining indeed. And I'm sorry about the cuff.

The data bit of seasonal dysfunction when it comes this so I apologize for that. I can't quite get to the cuff but did but I thank you for calling on that Homer and I will try to squeeze in the little bit more here. This is Teresa in Kansas. Teresa good morning Teresa how are you feeling good morning Peter, I am feeling really well and I just want to tell you. First off, I started my Christian on screen right here that I just get so excited.

I still have several videotapes in this how we were baptized in the summer of 82 and you think he had just passed away at that time that called call requesting prayer for my friend Nikki and I had called you. I think early early in the spring last this last year and she was taking care of her mother-in-law with Alzheimer's and cancer then with cerebral palsy, and at that time, her husband and been diagnosed with cancer and he sent passed away in July for anyway.

She decided to go to Bible school and was working really hard taking care of her sign in doing that and now went in for a checkup. They found cancer on her thyroid and she had surgery Thursday and and they were able to get it all. It was kind and tangled around some nerves and things that I did with the prognosis with the prognosis plan is for her bubbly radiation and chemo and and then go from there you know is going to be zero you know who was there for her to help with her mother and/or her son.

The couple that she lived with while she was in high school for a while that they are taken care of her son Al Washington Hospital and now I'm not sure after that. Not sure how things are going to go her dad becoming K helper to some where.

What city did she live in Manhattan. Listen Kansas will I will appreciate you letting us know and put that on the list right here as we lift her up, and prayers. This is young woman who's got a young child in her and she is as you say she's in her 30s. She had her 30th birthday last week, Eric two weeks ago some awful lot on the young woman and we we certainly recognize how massive this journey is and let her father's coming and that this other couple this joining in with them around him and no special needs child. She's got a mother with Alzheimer's. She's get a heavy heavy journey ahead of and II don't understand these things and I will never make any pretense of doing it just sometimes you just you see these things and and Teresa need just grown think Lord and I hear she is a widow with 30 with a special needs child and the Lord clearly commands us with widows and orphans and this is our journey as believers and so I hope that there's a local church and the community around there that will take this on as she goes to this difficult. Of of taking care of her son while recuperating herself in dealing with this. The radiation and so forth is going to be very difficult for chemo whatever plan they have and so I II grown of this is she's wounded and weary as the hymn says touch me and heal me, Savior divine and and I I don't understand this. I don't understand why God does what he does in the six and not only do I not understand.

I don't know that I can't understand and and II don't know that I even have the when I'm confident I don't have the capabilities to understand it even if he told BYU student and so we trusted without. I don't know any other path, but that but to trust him and say you Lord you have that only thou art the Potter and the clay. Mold me and make me after that will why am waiting, yielded and still.

But would you let Nikki know that we as a collective good. In fact, you know, I've only got about a minute left here Lord we don't understand and we we hear this heartbreaking story of this young woman who is caring for her special needs, such as caring for her mother thought her husband just passed away and she's only 30 and now she's dealing with this very difficult challenge of cancer since your near to the broken hearted father. This woman's broken heart that I would ask for comfort for her strength for her clarity of direction for assistance around for healing for her for all of these things we don't understand lately. May Teresa be a source conduit to that tooth that she can communicate this back to Nikki and your family. Pray for her father sees coming in after going through this issue with Teresa's mother of Alzheimer's. This family is hurting father we lift them up and I know that there are people all over this listing audience who are joining their voices with me on this and ask for mercy and were asking you for comfort and strength and perseverance, and we do all this, not because of our own merits, but we do this father because there is one man who stands between us and disaster and that is Christ Jesus, and we do it on his nine hours and we thank you for Jesus name amen Teresa, thank you so much for letting us know this and thank you for the call appreciate that very much. This is hope for the caregiver to Roseburg this show for family caregiver healthcare better caregivers but stay healthy together over the will see you next. Some of you know the remarkable story of Peter's wife Gracie and recently Peter talk to Gracie about all the wonderful things that emerge from her difficult journey. Take a listen Gracie. When you envision doing a prosthetic limb outreach. Did you ever think the inmates would help you do that, not in a million years.
