There Was A Time I Would Have Eaten Over This, but Just Feel Empty

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing ye might have life through His name. John 20: 31 

This verse is so very comforting right now. I feel so numb inside. My dad wanted to move in with us a year ago, but has now told us that he would prefer to live in a nursing home. There was a time I would have eaten over this, but just feel empty now!

I don't know if I feel like a failure about not being able to be all my dad needed or to be able to provide all he needed or wanted. I don't know if I feel to blame in some way for not better meeting his needs, although I thought I catered my day around his needs, the best that I could.

I tried to stay informed about best practices for caring for a family member, but no matter how much I tried to make things positive, he still had to deal with having a Parkinsonism, Macular Degeneration, and other debilitating issues. 

I hate to admit that I have been awake more whole nights that I would like to mention, which means that I am not turning this issue over into my Lord's compassionate arms. I need to focus on Christ's ability to take care of my dad in whatever way is best for him and that I don't have to take that all on, because Christ already has. But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing ye might have life through His name. John 20: 31 

Since this is an example of the positive influence God has made on my overeating, this may not reflect the whole meaning of the Bible verse.
