my daughter on wrong path

I have a 22 year old daughter who cares about nothing and no one except out having a good time and all that goes with it. As a mom its hard enough to see this and not be able to change any of it, but what makes it impossible to understand is that she has 3 beautiful children who keeps getting hurt when she shows up for a day and gone again for weeks. Please help me pray God can reach her I can't bear this burden alone.

My prayers are with you. As a recovering addict, I know how much my actions hurt my children, my mother and many more who care about me. I hope and pray tha God delivers her from all the evil that lurks out there. God bless you.

Thank you so much for your prayers. Since there is nothing that I can say or do to reach her God is my only hope in this mess.

You are not alone…she was the Lord’s before she was yours and He also cares for her deeply and is working in her life to teach her and bring her home.

My oldest son went out into the world and did about all he could do…he had a lot of pain that he was not dealing with. 
I at first dealt with him all wrong…I yelled…I threatened…I warned and warned him to change his ways.  Then the Lord gave me a dream…I was yelling at my Son to straighten up…to quit doing everything he was doing…to just quit.  We were in the basement…and I started up the stairs to leave…I turned around and saw that my Son was drinking and getting drunk…and I knew that the things I was saying to him was making him worse…not making him better…I was making him do some of the things he was doing and making matters so much worse…I was hurting him more than he was already hurting.

I decided then and there to change MY ways…I began to love him unconditionally just the way he was and where he was.  It was to be a few years before the Lord would rein him in but He did…and now my Son is still his own person living his own life…I can not tell him how to live it…but the Lord is bringing so much healing to Him and in the Lords arms I leave him.

You may have to be the MOM your daughters children need for now…but keep putting her before the Lord and He will do a work in her…you will see.  Sometimes He works fast and sometimes not…but He loves us and He loves them…I often see my Son lying in my arms in my mind and see me handing him to the Lord Jesus…I am praying for your peace in knowing that your Dear Daughter will turn around…just let her know you will always love her…where she is now in life and in better times.  Linda
