please pray for Seth, he is a teen who has gone through unimaginable pains, his dad sexually abused him as a baby-child, went to jail for it, Seth is going through PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). Sometimes he is open to God, sometimes he hates God and blames God for letting bad things happen to babies. Please pray for him and his repentance and see God's plans from all that terrible suffering. thank you so much
Hi rocklife,Please forgive me for being straightforward here.
Please pray for him and his repentance
thank you Dorcas, I appreciate the advice about God being our healer. He is 18, no father figure, some of his friend's parents he considered like family recently died in a car accident.Is there other good things you can share with me? pm is good too for sensitive things. thanks again
Dorcas, great post.Myself, growing up with NO father figure period. To have ONE person in my life, would've really helped out alot of wounds in my life. That God is now healing.Ask maybe a deacon, maybe a pastor, maybe an elder. But someone who is older and could 'stand in the gap' of a father.Even in God's instant healing. That person came from a LIFESTYLE of something; i.e. addiction (drugs, food...etc..) and it can be a 'firm' conception of 'what a male figure in my life means to me'.What I'm trying to get at. Is, pray that God heals this young boy's heart. And not only that. But that God rises someone up to also SHOW him what a father really is like.Mentor, best-friend. Something.Think of it this way. If someone got free from smoking. They have been addicted 10 years and God sets them free one day. That person is lost. Why? Because they need to find SOMETHING to occupy the time with. Instead of smoking, they need to do something else.Now, some who get set free, CAN enter back into bondage. Because that they are like 'i have no idea what should i fill the time with'. So that fill up the newly found free time back into smoking.I don't think its a '100%' need. But, i believe strongly, this will help. It won't just change the outside appearance of his face. But change him INWARDLY. 8-)
