The late Christian comedian and singer Danny Ganns wrote a song: "Go as far as you can see." It was about a boy lost in the fog on a farm. The only thing the boy could see was an old tractor and the only thing he could hear was his Daddy's voice. I believe Jason that our lives are already known and completed in Christ. We, like you said, all take some wrong turns. But they are not without being foreknown and having purpose in our our lives and our families if we believe that Jesus will redeem it all in His way and time. It is very painful and God will be your comfort and theirs until He works things out. Only God knows what exactly will happen in your story, but the only Way is to call out to God in this fog.. and to hear and to go as far as He shows you one day at a time. When I was in a difficult situation in my own time of Fog.. God gave me this acronym: F=Focus O=On G-GOD.. and that is what is getting me where He wants me to be one day at a time in both joy and tears. Praying with you in your time of decision making.
Standing with you in prayer for God's guidance and direction. His word says that if we desire to know His will.. we will know it. We just have to be faithful to wait on Him to reveal it when He is ready. As far as your present dilemma. God often places us where we are for a few reasons. One so that He can SHINE through you in a dark place. I know it is not easy to work in a secular environment, boy do I.. but at the same time that God can manifest His love in and through us, He changes us in those difficult places. Though it is painful and sometimes we want to run, the best thing is to just hold on tighter and let God work. Like sowing, watering and reaping over time.. you might be surprised the impact your life has made upon many of them in some way. Blessings!

Give each caregiver in the hospital wisdom from You in how to help and to care for Victor the very best possible way. Or LORD.. bring healing to Victor by Your own Hand. In Jesus name.. amen!

My spouse and I have been in the same boat believe it or not for 15 years. It is very hard for our kids and very unpleasant and painful for us. I will admit.. I gave my spouse pretty much the same ultimatum. But I soon learned I had to compromise. My parents have always treated my spouse as a child of their own along with our children. My spouses parents have been 'dictators and my spouse has had the choice of towing their line or being cast out.' After this past summer, I made my own decision after prayer that I felt was fair to my spouse, his family, and to myself,.. since I have been 'at fault' for whenever my spouse has not met with their approval. I refuse to be used or mistreated, and disrespected any longer and my spouse admitted to using me as a 'scapegoat' a times for our family issues with them. Sometimes there are not perfect endings.. or ways that we would desire for things to work out. BUT GOD has the right answer for each HOUR we are in with them all. Right now.. my husband and kids are free to fly and go to see and do whatever they like with his family. I choose to forgive, but will not take part in anymore hurt to my own self by their words or actions. They can go to them, but my home is my safe place. I don't know what GOD's answer is for you and your wife... I do know how painful it all can be.. but the place i have found that is best with GOD is to honor each one's feelings and to compromise so that although it is not perfect.. no one is cast off or exiled... and in time.. GOD can heal if we all are willing. Praying.
Samantha you have a BEAUTIFUL HEART.. standing and praying with you!
I understand your urgency and heart to GO! I also have wanted to go to Africa for many years. Liberia, Ghana, Sierra Leone.. but if I might share something with you? Sometimes GOD puts a desire in our hearts, but the timing is not yet. And if GOD truly desires for you to BE THERE. HE WILL make it happen! And HE still can! I heard this saying once that has helped me through many times like this: "If it's GOD's Will, It's GOD's Bill" so once we ask HIM and continue to wait for His answer we can rest assured that if He wants us to be someplace He will provide for it one way of another. He may also ask us to be involved in raising the funds through some inspiration He gives us. Anyway my sister.. just trust. In His time He makes all His will for us clear and active. God Bless your fervent desire to serve Him~
Praying GOD's love and personal counsel will breakthrough to your father at this time. I also pray for peace, calmness, and restoration through Christ in every part of His being. Sometimes things in my own life have had to crumble completely to the ground for me to "look up."
Be at peace.. God knows your dad's way... and yours. Love in Christ.
Prayers,love, peace, provision for all needs, and comfort be yours in Christ Jesus at this time.
Praying GOD helps each of you to find His will, His calling for your lives to play your part in His Epic Story of Reconciliation of the lost. He promises that when we want to know.. we will! Excited for each of you to see it.
Hi, I know how you feel, I have been there.Just remember JESUS knows what he is doing and why. It is sooo much easier to respond in a fleshly way, but this is the time to REALLY lean on the LORD!!! PTL my husband and I are learning this lesson together!! Hang in there....I know it is much easier said then done.
hi, Keep turning to JESUS!!! Keep laying All of this down at his feet...remember, HE knows EXACTLY what is happening and why. Be strong!!! and armor up.
AMEN! Glory to GOD! He loves us SO MUCH and HE fights for us when we allow Him to!
I am also a woman who left her husband and children when they were in their early teens, a tumultuous time! I came back after two years, but that is my own story. Here is what happened:
1. GOD told my husband (my kids adopted dad) to 'be a ROCK for me and to WAIT for me!' My leaving woke him up to the things I had been trying so hard to get through to him about our marriage and family issues. BUT.. I was WRONG to leave in the first place and it caused a lot of pain to us all!
2. GOD worked in my heart for those 2 years and in my husband's heart... and we comforted our kids while we worked through things.. but they still struggled because my kids.. lost their dad to illness when they were small.
I think the 'good' that came out of it all was that this and GOD brought us BOTH to our knees in our intense pain where we needed to be to learn to die to self for the other and our family. I wish I could say that everything worked magically fine after our reunion, but in fact it has taken many years of GOD working still in us to sacrifice for one another like Jesus does. Our kids learned over time that no marriage or family is perfect and LOVING and Cherishing one another is worth FIGHTING for!It's hard to see our kids suffer most of all when they don't understand. But they are resilient when they are assured we love them!
Let GOD lead you.. share your grief with HIM, encourage and love your kids with all of your heart.. GOD will comfort them and you as well. HE will lead you in how to handle all of this and what to say and do. My husband listened to GOD.. that's all it takes to do all you can do. Praying and standing with you. hugging you with tears..
Extending a hug to you.. I DO understand... truly.. been there. I will pray for you right now.. and ask the LORD to Love on you.. minister His guidance to you.. and to bring peace and comfort. In my own times like these.. I have just snuggled in deeply to the LORD.. our time and focus when it is on HIM alone gives Jesus the chance to help us SEE and HEAR more clearly.. take some time and even though your feelings want to distract you.. share all of them with HIM.. He WILL give you comfort and hope you need and direct your path. Love in Christ!
I will be praying for you...:) Migraines are not fun I suffer debilitating pain from them at 17 years old and have scoliosis which caused a curvature in my neck your walk with God he uses these things as lessons gotta just make yourself feel better and always keep your head high and focus on the God above that loves us forever

Please pray for me also, I am an ex convict, and I am seeking a better paying job. God Bless you Karen
Wow...reading this was like looking in a mirror. But I remind myself that I am a child of God and that no weapon formed against me will prosper. Satan know that you are happy and living under God's grace and love. And that ticks him off. So he will do whatever he can to make you think that you are not worthy to be happy. But God takes you sin, forgives them and throws them away. I remind myself everyday that My Father loves me and wants the best for me. So I tell satan that he does not win. That Christ is victorious and since He lives in me, I am victorious. Tell yourself that everyday. repeat as often as you need to during the day. Satan can't stand to be in the mind that is constantly thinking on Christ. It shuts him up. Hope this helps. God Bless!!
God is faithful to those who love Him. I know that God has you where you are for a reason. And your children will grow closer to Him because they see you faithfullness. I pray that God keeps you, your family and your friend's family in perfect peace. The peace that surpasses all understanding. And that whatever was taken from you will be returned to you 10 folds.
I am a single mom and understand having to go without for a season. God bless you abundantly!!!
