No Miracle

TP is moving away two weeks from today. She has quit college and has given notice at her jobs. I don't want to go into any more details at this time, other than to say that I shall always love her. And I love her enough to let her go. Hopefully, in time, she will find her way back home to her family and her Lord. Like the prodigal son, we pray for her return. We shall cry for her and pray for her every night. Please keep her in your prayers, ask God to watch over her and protect her from all harm.

My precious child, you are so loved. My arms ache for your hugs, and my ears long to hear you say "I love you, Momma" just one more time.

Goodbye, my princess.

I agree...not goodbye.

Praying.


(Val, did you remove a post from the other day? I KNOW I commented, but when I returned the whole post was gone.)

Val,

How my heart hurts for you. What I know is simple: a mother's love is only surpassed by God's love for all of His children. He understands prodigals...he's got a whole world of them! We all started out lost...and our journey into his will and purpose for our lives is diverse--but I know for sure that God uses our obedience and our disobedience to pull it all together for his glory!

You are a faithful watch(wo)man...while you wait remember to enjoy the blessings of this day--each of them...as you prepare for the homecoming banquet that WILL happen one day.

You may feel as though you are saying "goodbye" to the young woman you've dreamed your daughter could become and now she is on a detour. I believe that God will use this detour and you will welcome the young woman who returns with arms wide open....and be in awe of what God has done in her life.

I'll be "waiting" with you my friend....and praying for your entire family.

JOe - I pray that she and I will meet again. For now, she is totally ignoring me. What hurts more than anything is that she is believing the lies that are coming of her boyfriend's and his parents' mouths - lies about me and my motivations, my love, my parenting. How she can believe them after I've been her mom for almost 21 years jusst kills me. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Gayla - Yes, I did remove a post. I had to for many reasons. Thanks for your prayers.

Stacy - My fear is that "more time" will slip into years. . .

Diana - You know exactly what to say to me. Thanks. I may email you just to get some additional support because I am in so much pain right now.

I will pray for you, and pray for the young man in her life(that God will give him a heart for Jesus) for Jesus's intervention, for her heart, her soul and for her entierly to be placed in the hands of our Lord.
God Bless

My 19 year old has quit College also, seeking a job, rarely ever home and doing his 'thing'.
I will contend with those that contend with you, and your children I will save. Isaiah 49:25a

Your sons (daugthers) will be taught by the Lord, and great will be there peace. Isaiah 54:13

I pray these scriptures over my children evry day.

From one 'prodical' daugther who left home at 17 years of age, who took paths that most would never tread upon, God in His lavish love, mercy, grace and forgiveness brought me back. Prayers of the righteous man availeth much! I'm living testimony of that..my grandmother never stopped praying for me, believing that God would bring me back. I too now trust, hope and believe He will do the same with my children, especially my eldest. I keep telling the Lord, "He's Your's. You LOVE him more than I do, so I trust You with his care."...

Will be praying for you and your family, and your daughter..
Remember, they intended it to harm you, but God intended it for good, to save many lives". Genesis 50:20. God keeps reminding me that my son NEEDs to make his own faith walk, I can't do it for him any longer, it's time this journey is with my son and the Lord, not mommy holding his hand. My part is to pray pray pray pray,,trust and believe...
((hugs))
