**Good morn sisters!
Ladies, I was very disappointed…Oli promised me he would study…when I asked if he had his stuff for science he didn't even have his papers…I go out of my way to get study notes for him from a friend and the argument started…I tried to copy the notes and all of a sudden my printer wouldn't work at all! It has never done that before! I always get low ink messages first.
I really think God is telling me to let go and LET HIM work on Oli. I can't anymore. I'm too tired. I think He just wants me to step back and stop trying to control everything. Father…it's so hard. I'm afraid that if I don't push that HE will fail…Lord, it's as if I'm afraid to leave him in your hands. I think that is why my printer is not working…I guess I need to be hit over the head with something before I learn. After all this happened I went for a good long walk with my dh and put things in perspective. We both agree we have to let Oli make his mistakes and assume the consequences.
When I got home Oli was apologizing and said he had studied...we'll see. One more day for him tomorrow.
I really need this verse:
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Oli passing or not is totally in the relm of things of this world. Lord, I think I pray for his grades more than his relationship with you. Father, I need to step back and not fret over this anymore.
Lord, thank you for letting Steph be aware that you put Raymond on her path. Father we ask that you give her words, or just a listening ear at the right moment that Raymond may see Your goodness through Your children. Father…every time we deal with someone who doesn't know you, let us be aware…provide the words and make us responsive to your spirit. We thank you for lessening the conflict with Steph's renters. Thank You Lord for the peace you provide your children. Thank you for the new friend you have given her…how precious it is to have someone who knows you close to us.
Lord we ask for your grace for Erika...your constant presence when she feels pain. We ask you Lord to relieve her pain and give her family closure with worker's comp. Thank You Father for the work you have started with her and the new Lawyer.
that being said...let's have a great day ladies!
Victory = series of right choices....
Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!
God bless you and yours!
