I have married a woman who with we have the most blessed relationship in our own selves in prayer and relating.
However she has 4 children who are getting over their blood fathers’ attitude etc(not going into this).
the point is that the son 14yrs is on many occasions violent, heavy user of druggs, drink, won’t do anything, expects hand outs and every thing else.
In the past he picked up a table i made smashed it on the floor, I said and did nothing, but my being a wood worker in time I put it back together without his knowing.
The key, he said to his sister that he wished he had a way of fixing it for me. This was my first signs of a spark to work with, and so i started working with him as much as possible. he still desires druggs, drink, not to help out, to take where he can and to get abusive.
How many times does Jesus tell us to foregive? you all know.
Last night i told his friend who would not get out of our sons’ sisters room to leave for he has been band for two weeks from our property. I told him at least 4 times, in the end he started swearing at me, so i told him I would call the police if he didn’t leave. My wifes son screamed at me, jumped on the bonnet of my car pushed it in causing around $1500 of damage.
Once again forgiveness is the key, Jesus tells us.
I served the other boy a trespass notice and still have to remember that people are what God made to His likeness not cars.
At one time I felt like running away but knew that Jesus never did run away from these situations, so why should I. I believe in change through my allowing the spirit to change me to help others.
I found this prayer in our catholic magazine and it works and I pray it daily for these boys, even though I know satin wants me to weaken but I havent.
I thought you might like it, it has helped me with these situations and given me peace.
