Aaron has stabilized ! …one battle won but please keep him liftedup as the war continues…covetting your prayers ! …thanks to all !!
Good morning prayer warriors! There is a young man named Aaron. He is 16 years old and needs a touch from God’s healing hand. Aaron has bone cancer, his immune system is struggling. Please take a few moments to pray for him today. Put him on your prayer list if you have one. Thank you!
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 unto him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all generations for ever and ever. Amen.
“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in Heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. If you love only those who love you, what reward is there in that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.
Wow! Today has been rough. I am emotionally drained and raw. I had to dismiss a young lady today from program. My first dismissal. This young lady is the mirror image of who I once was and now she is trying to hang on to her sobriety and is determined in her heart to make it. However, there was a bump in the road yesterday and she committed a safety violation which is grounds for immediate dismissal. She can return Monday for a team meeting to determine if she can return to program. Having said all that…. The part that is so hard is…. I don’t even know at this point what I’m trying to say. I hurt because she hurts. It’s like I’m watching myself going through the pain all over again. I hated telling her she had to leave. I know God has a plan in all this. I know He knows right where she is and what it’s going to take to move her forward. It’s just hard to watch. I remember all to well the pain I felt during my growth in the beginning of my sobriety. Please remember to pray for those who are broken and trying to figure out how to become what God designed them to be. The homeless, addicted, the lost little ones out there who don’t have it within themselves to believe it could ever be different.
Thanks for sharing my burden.
