This isn’t going to be a long blog. I don’t have a lot of fancy words to share… just emotions from my heart to yours. I’m talking about prodigals, and how very much we love them.
A while ago, I wrote a blog titled, Prodigals Affecting Marriage. I said a lot there, which I don’t feel I need to repeat here. If you didn’t read it and want to, you can do so through the link provided. But I just want to pass something on to those of you who have prodigals —children, in particular (even though this is a web site, which centers on marriage —our prodigals affect us as individuals and our marriages, too).
If you are in the place of having prodigals that you love (whether your marriage is affected or not), please know that my heart cries with yours.
I know what it is to be in this place and the emotions shred your heart, day-by-day, year-by-year, for many of us. How I wish that no one had to experience the depth of this pain.
I can’t write a lot on this. My own prodigals could very well read this (they know about this web site). It’s not my intent to hurt them, but to love on them. God has shown us that’s what we are to do. HE is their Holy Spirit, not me and not my husband. God has shown us to let Him work on them spiritually. And we are to love, love, love them, which we do, deeper than they could ever comprehend. God may show you a different path to take with your prodigals, but right now, this is what we know we are to do.
Share a Song
But to get to the point of this blog —I want to pass along a song that has ministered to my heart over the years. As I was praying for my loved ones, crying out to God on their behalf today, I was impressed to go onto Youtube to see if this song was posted there. And sure enough, it is.
I want to share it with those who cry out, and want our children (yours and ours) to live for Christ. We want them to someday join us in heaven. Perhaps this song will touch your heart as it has mine. I hope so and pray so —that God will use it to minister to you and love on you as you cry with me, and millions of other parents, who love and dream for our loved ones, in Christ.
May God give you the strength, as He is giving us, to never, never, never give up praying and believing for those that we love so very much.
