You are in a position of great power to these in this. It is the key to set free all bondages. If words could fix people many would be working by now. But Love, now that is a healing substance.
I agree love is a powerful thing. But I can't love only God's love through me. I have been here now for 6 days. Today I left I just starting to make way in their hearts. I am frim with the rules. But I am trying to really show how much I love them. There was some misunderstanding with me and my sister I think we are doing good now.
You are right look to God. Praise God he is working things out. Each day it is getting better.
As for today. I was walking with outside and it started raining I mean raining. We were so wet when we got home. oops
It was so nice they only were in front of the Tv a hour. They would there for hours and hours if I let them. I try to think of things we can do, such as a game. we were working on saying nice things to each other today. I am looking ways I can let them know I love them. But I am looking to plant seeds of the Good News in their lives.
Thank you so much for your prayer. I am thankful and with much joy. God has taken all the pain away I really feel so much peace. there are still some things to work through but God is still working.
How I pray Christ love and just ways will win their hearts.
In his love

I thank you so much for your kind word.
may God teach and grow me in this.
I never understood how family is so important
until I my father was dying. It was a year ago or so. I was away from my father camping. I wanted to get away. It hit me, how important very day with my father was. Why would I want to be anywhere eles when he was dying. After that I saw that our family is so important to be with. Before I really didn't care that much. I loved my family. But I did my thing and they did theirs. we saw each other on hoildays and such. we talk on the phone here and there. But I think there is to be more to a family.
This a hard lesson to learn to really love, without wanting anything back.
I really love my younger brother and sister. I think it is hard, because they love the world,
I know God has called me to be more active in their lives but I didn't want to. I wish family lived closer together. It would make thing so much better.
What it if I pray but not pray with them? Or read but not read with them? I really trying to come up with questions to talk with about..
have a blessed day

I feel very weary. I talked with my family. I could bearly speak, I was crying half the time.
But I got out a little of what was on my heart.
I see part of the reason God sent me here. What baggae I was carry. It far better to give it to the Lord. The Lord went deep into my heart. To show all I have holding on to. I push it aside for so long. Although they ever change, I must forgive and let go. I spoke with them before. But The Lord is saying now I want to heal you.
This I kept to long
I kept deep within
To deny that which was true
I hope for it to change
I kept trying yet only
when would I learn
I am Loved and bought with price
Is within my soul to be
felt loved and cared for
to be want to be known
Is not my hearts weeping
plea to just grow in knowing
Is not a soul desire to have them know
truth and be set free
does not my heart grow heavy
is not my bones burning for them
to be His
It is true I long and seek for my right
I was sadden when they didn't come through
I had a hope in man, though family I thought
to rest on. Still a trust in man
and not God
So this be true I am to love them even more
and give even more
I found my strenght in thee
naked is my heart before thee
there you see all the hurt and pain
honest and humble I come to heal all that is

Charlene, I am praying for a break-thru in your health situation. That the Lord would 'show' you His Mercy and for your family.
We will talk soon. Just a lot going on here right now. Trying to get all my burdens together.
My daughter's husband dying of cancer and lots more going on. But will get all of these prioritized after a while.
I Love you dear sister.
Let's be strong together, O.K. ?
You are in His Hands and I got you covered in prayer over these new meds. He's protecting you.
HUGS thru Cyberspace.

Annie thanks again what a sweet sister in Christ you are. I have kinda give up a little this week. sometime I think I am going to be sick forever. I will just have live with it. Why keep trying to get better, meaning taking this and that, or don't eat this or that. Really sometimes I don't try as hard. I see this as a sin. My body is a temple I am to be glad and rejoice.
I felt at braking point. Lord God was my cry I can't meet what my family ask of me. Do I become discouraged and give up No, I have to keep fighting. But I can't do it, Lord I need you.
This is the thing, again they want me to work. I want to work. I can accept I am sick, I think. But my family can't. I pray God will make me well so I can work. Or open other doors and let my family have understanding. I know and have faith God can help me. But sometimes I don't have faith or I just feel I can't.
So my question I am wrong, for feeling I couldn't work? Or was I wrong for not pushing myself harder? I feel guity for being sick. No I feel guity for not making myself work. I can't go without working, So I need God to make well so I can work a little.
Where I am to live? Although my brother seem most understanding. He has said, he is not sure how long he wants me there. Maybe he is joking I am not sure. I just need peace he welcomes me there.
I really feel a great need for God. I know God meets my needs. This I praise him for. I havn't work much since My father died. and yet God keeps meeting all my needs. a dear Sisier in Christ say she is my mom. She has helped me with food and other things. People have come up to me and given me money when I need to pay something. He is my father and he meets the needs of his children.
So my question he can meet this need of being well? Will he give a brake through? Will he heal me?
dear sister how I am I will keep praying for you and your family. Let his heart know Christ.
Lord Jesus king of kings be ruler of His heart, let him see you are the truth the way and the life. Please Dear let your truth set him free. Dear Lord let your Glory shine, be with my sister meeting her needs as you pour your grace into her life. Let her heart grw strong in the faith of your word. Let it be on her lips. Let a new song raise up in her heart. Let her stand with you and you with her. Lord be lifted high in this. Be honor and praised. WIth tears bring smiles. With the pain bring joy. with the hurt bring healing. King of Kings master of our hearts, let her feel your power moving growing her and molding to be more like you. teach her through this. Open her eyes to the Glory of the Lord through this. Let her seek the face of Christ. Seek you and may you meet her. speak into her heart. amen
Just now as I was praying a fear over came me, may lord help me sleep.

Just saw your thread after I pm you.
Bless your kind soul. With the burdens you are carrying, you still make time to comfort and encourage others.
You make this scripture come alive to me, "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
let me share this burden too with you in prayer.
Dear Charlene and Annie, I (dedicate) this hymn to your tender soul.....
Soft as the voice of an angel,
Breathing a lesson unheard,
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Whispers her comforting word:
Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.
Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.
If, in the dusk of the twilight,
Dim be the region afar,
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star?
Then when the night is upon us,
Why should the heart sink away?
When the dark midnight is over,
Watch for the breaking of day.
Hope, as an anchor so steadfast,
Rends the dark veil for the soul,
Whither the Master has entered,
Robbing the grave of its goal;
Come then, oh, come, glad fruition,
Come to my sad weary heart;
Come, O Thou blest hope of glory,
Never, oh, never depart.
'Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;"
God with us

Bless you SingMing. You are a blessing to us, greatly, since you've signed on here.
That song is beautiful and greatly appreciated.
When my dear friend's husband was dying, his one favorite song was "The Anchor Holds".
He would always say, when troubles hit, "it's only temporary".
He's been gone now for almost 10 years, but I still hear him saying that down to me and so does his wife, in our hearts.
"GOD with us" is so true sister and The LORD Bless you as He has been plus some :-)
Thank you again & waiting to meet you in the not too distant future -- compared to Eternity :-D
His Love and my Thanks.
