Parental Impossibilities

By Vonette Bright

“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.
