How do we handle it?

Psalm 51:17 "The sacrifice acceptable t God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou will not despise."

My grandson, Brandon has been making dumb decisions and getting into a bunch of trouble. I know he wants to be popular and be part of the in crowd but he has really lost his sense of balance and his perspective. Good kids do bad things and they need to learn from their mistakes. I am praying that this does not turn him the wrong way.

See one goes through things in this life and wonder why so many have to suffer and hurt. I know God has the answers and He is always on time. I do know this, but at times I still hurt and still cry and still need a hug. I wonder if my grandmother thought that of me. She never quit praying for me and I thank God for that. She always would slow His love to everyone and they would know she was different. She really was a remarkable lady. I was blessed having her for she never tired of praying for my salvation and she knew when I asked Jesus into my heart and it so blessed her. I wrote her and told her that I had found a love that would satisfy me and I did when I accepted Jesus as my Lord. Best decision I have ever made. I know at times I have really messed up and have to step back and do a re-check but He has never stopped loving me as one in the world would have done. After the tears dry up and the hurt in my heart leaves, I will be fine. I trust my grandson to the Lord and know that he is in the best of hands. I know that I know that He will hold him gently and love him in spite of everything. He is God! I am His, today, tomorrow, and forever. He loves Bandon and went to the Cross for him. Now, may the Holy Spirit reveal this to Brandon's heart.
I am rambling. Sorry...Please pray for Brandon.

Sharlee,
I am so sorry I can relate to how you feel but it isn't my grandson Thank God they are still pretty young. It is so hard when you love someone so much to have to sit back because there is nothing you can do to help them! But Thank God like you said we can Pray and wait and watch God work in His timing . Now that is the hardest part for me at times to do when I want to help and rescue someone. If I was close by I would give you a big hug! God loves Brandon and He will take good care of him plus he has his loving grandma praying for him. I will be praying for brandon also and you too.
God Bless You All
Love Eva

Hello Eva, Thank you so much for your post. We do go through trials and I would gladly take this away from my grandson if I could. I have given it to the Lord and now I trust He will work in Brandon's life. The peer pressure is terrible in the schools. Three of my children are teachers in the public school system and they cannot believe how bad it is getting. Parents will not come to school to meet with a teacher so they can tell them where their child needs help. Too busy and haven't the time is the main reply they get. We need to show our kids that they are important. that we love them, and start to take them back to church. I hurt but I know that others are hurting also. I thank my God that I have Him in my life and can go to Him and lay all I feel before Him.
God bless you and thank you for caring. May the Lord bless you in everything you put your hand to do.

Love, Sharlee
