My dear friends keeping your faith steady can be difficult. Currently, there is a situation with a family member that is testing my faith. This individual continues to make bad choices in her life. I am unsure if she realizes how her choices affects everyone else in her life. I believe that she has an illness and cannot help what she continues to do repeatedly. It is difficult to hear about, and I am thankful that I am not witnessing it first hand. I am trying to have my faith steady. In times like these, I feel hopeless and helpless. I do not know what to say or do in these situations. I pray that if I am to do something that the Holy Spirit would nudge me. I am trying to believe that God has got this situation under control despite it looking like it is completely out of control. I am trying to believe that He has her in his hands and is carrying her. This has been a long, many years of addiction for this individual and many years suffering from depression. I pray for this individual for strength and healing. I pray that she realizes how important she is to God and that she is loved. I pray that she realizes that there is absolutely nothing in her past that God does not know about or cannot handle. I pray that she can let go of whatever negative thoughts flow in every day. I pray she can get past this rough period. Please pray with me!
