“Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.� Proverbs 3:5&6

Cathy knew there was something wrong.
Even though her daughter Becky was an adult and lived out of state, Cathy still had a mother’s instinct.
Their last phone conversation left her unsettled.

She soon discovered Becky had an extramarital affair.  Her husband threatened divorce.

Cathy so wanted to save Becky from the sorrow and suffering ahead. 
But she couldn’t.

Most of all, Cathy longed to see her daughter receive Jesus into her
heart and life.

She couldn’t MAKE that happen either.  So this burdened mother prayed.

Oh, dear friend, there are limitations to what you can do for your children.

So recognize your limitations, share God’s love at every opportunity, and pray daily for them.

In God’s timing you will see results.  
Becky is now telling others how Christ saved her marriage!

Question:  Do you have a situation in your family which looks impossible?  
Place it in the Lord’s hands.

Remember the TV commercial for potato chips that challenged:
Bet you can’t eat just one.”
That’s what Steve Brown said to an audience recently.
Telling others about Jesus  you just can’t stop with one.  (SMILE)

Jay was there when he heard Steve speak on evangelism.
He wanted to begin telling others right away.
So together, Steve and Jay approached a distraught man on the beach.
Now it was winter and the driver had his heater on and windows rolled up.
But they knocked on the window and the man was curious enough to listen.
Steve presented the FOUR SPIRITUAL LAWS to him and he prayed to invite Christ into his life.
The man had been there to commit suicide!  Now he had eternal life.

Yes, friend, the first time you tell someone about Jesus is memorable.  But don’t stop with just one!

 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.� Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)

Victoria Johnson was only eight years old when she was repeatedly abused by her own father.

She represents just one of the 39 million here in the U.S. who’ve survived sexual abuse.

In high school Victoria joined the chorus, where God placed a friend in her life.  The girl’s father pastored a local church.  One Sunday he invited the school choir to sing.  And this was the moment Victoria’s life began to change!  God’s word was a soothing touch to her troubled heart.  That day she prayed and invited Christ into her life.  This was her first step to becoming more than a survivor!  Victoria was transformed!  Old things passed away—all things becoming new!

God’s Word says, “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, “Do not fear; I will help you.� 

Victoria Johnson is the founder of PICI, Protecting Innocent Children, Inc., a nonprofit ministry to sexually abused children and their families:
And also the author of Children and Sexual Abuse.
