NCFI Cares: When Nursing Becomes the Olympiad of Our Life


Every day in our lives we, Nurses, are running a race that is often beyond the 400 meters. We feel we are rowing and rowing in a boat that leaks at the sides, or we’re cycling a bike that makes us exercise, but it is fixed and does not lead us anywhere. Not to say or think about the hurdles or difficulties that comes into our way.

“… That competes as an athlete; he is not crowned unless he strives lawfully” 2 Timothy 2: 5.

     Many times when we throw the ball, it bounces back into our lives, giving the enemy a temporary victory. Nursing is a kind of Olympic Games, which can burn you out or give you a lot of satisfaction and joy. What side of the court are you? ”Be strong and of good courage, fear not… because the Lord is going with you, will not leave, or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31: 6.

     Those who believe in God know who has real control of the game is and His  Word says, “let us run with patience the race that is set before us , looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith …” Hebrews 12: 1 -2

     As a Christian nurse, I’m running the same race as you are, working out every day, “in piety, for the bodily exercise little is profitable, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life and of the coming1 Timothy 4: 7-8.
