As most of you know, I dont preach religion and I am not going to now either. I have a testimony, that God has spoken to my heart and want to share it. God just spoke to my heart about my church,none of yours, but He spoke to me to share with the leader of my church,we need to draw more young people to my church. The older ones are dying off and no one wants or cares to participate in the churches activities. ITs time for my church to go out unto the world and share with the poor the word of God. The rest will follow. He also spoke to my heart,concerning my daughters. He pointed out, their behavior is my fault and no one else. I taught my 2 youngest daughters to rely on mama, cause mama is a control freak and thinks no one can do it like her. Mistake #1. Now I must undo the damage. I must allow them to fall in their walk before they can walk alone. What do you ladies think. I feel God has spoken and so shall it be

    Good comments, all of you. I agree. It is very difficult to let them go but it must be done. My daughter has treated me poorly as well. She doesn't any more.

    I thought when my kids were young, my worry would be over when they grew up. It just got worse. Your control as a mother ends and you just have to watch what is, sometimes, a train wreck. I pray for them daily, even my older son who died in 1996. That's all we can do sometimes. I pray for peace for all us mothers in that they will remember what we tried to teach them.

    Joyce, No weapon formed against you shall prosper. Remember that. God is blessing you with wisdom to do the right thing. We all want our children to depend on us a bit, but not to the point of using us. Sometimes our children think that they can just treat us any kind of way, they can't. I will be keeping you and your daughters lifted in prayer that God reveals to them what they need to do. Isn't it wonderful to have such a large group of "prayer partners" and I'm so happy that our paths crossed today. Everything happens for a reason and I believe that we were meant to meet up today. May God continue to bless you and keep you safe my new friend.

    Have an overflowing blesssed rest of your day!........ Joyce

    Good comments, Joyce. You're right. Your daughters do need to rely on the Lord as you do. You can support them, but you can't control them or let them walk all over you, either. God bless you and I'll pray for you as work this through.

    God is our strength, so you are right, your children should be taught to walk with our Lord for strength, but love the support they get from mom.

    I fear many churches are in the same boat, so many young people have turned away from God and we do need to show our beleive of our Lord and not hide it as so many have chosen to do. I will add you to my list of those I pray for that God will hold you and your family in his grace.

    You sound so much more confident and at peace today. I am glad God has spoken to your heart and that He has strengthened you. Yes, I agree that more and more churches are losing their young for lack of knowledge of the scripture. You know that is what happened to Israel and Judah. Ho 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

    A very heartfelt and meaningful blog and I had to click the "I liked This Blog" button.
