Believing for a Loved One?

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

The Lord has really been good to me, I AM so grateful that He spared me from the road I was traveling on. God's no respecter of persons. What He did for me, He CAN do for your loved ones.

The best advice that I can give is to not grow weary. Do what you know to do (pray and be supportive). What's left after having done all is to STAND. The Lord is loving and cares for our loved ones deeply, and He knows just how to reach each one. The Lord's gonna be patient and wait for them to come to Him for help, just like we all have to. We all have to get to that point of desperation. I know that our heavenly Father is pleased with us, sees and feels our heart, and will answer our prayers in His timing. We can't rush the work of the Father.

Our loved ones are really blessed to have people like us in their life, who loves them and hasn't given up, even if everyone else has. We're doing right when we aren't judging or rejecting them... just loving them ... LOVE WINS ONE OUT.


Prayer: Father God, I pray that You woo our loved ones by way of the Holy Spirit. Draw them to You. Love on them. Be there for them. Help them to call out for You, for You have never rejected those who seek Your face. Minister to them, love the hurts and pains of the past away, take away ungodly addictions, help them to live for You. Keep them safe from all harm and be gentle with them as You work to reach them. Help us to know our part, be loving and supportive (but not enabler of ungodly actions or addictions) and give us peace and renew our hope as we wait on You to move ... suddenly. In Jesus' name, amen.
