Trust God Regardless of the Situation You are in

Today, I promise to take our daughter to Church, but the way things are going, it doesn’t seem that I will accomplish this. The enemy is adamant that he wants to keep her in this mental state, but God wants to  set her free.

The state that she is in does not indicate that she will ever be set free. She is not focused on the things of God and she does not always obey instructions. She remains dedicated to the voice in her head. However, I am not concentrating on what I see but what I believe. We must trust God regardless of the situation we are in. Faith is hoping to receive what you have not seen {Hebrews 11:1).

Encourage Your loved One

My daughter is doing so much better now. I tell her how well she is doing and how much God loves her. When she repeats, ” Am I okay?” I help her understand how important it is to feel confident because God never leaves or forsakes us. He is forever walking with us and helping us through many life issues, even her issues.

For those who are also care-givers, I suggest that you reach out to your loved ones with love. Wouldn’t Jesus do just that? Yes, give a hug, speak a word of encouragement to your son or daughter and say a prayer of healing over them as no situation is too hard for God.

If anyone would like to give encouragement, please comment on this post.

My Journey helping my daughter

My journey helping my daughter began when my daughter was a baby but I do not want to go back that far. When she was thirteen and a half, she became mentally ill and was  diagnosed with Schizophrenia. That was the most difficult part of my journey as a mother.  My life was turned upside down as I became her advocate coordinating all aspects of her care. I found comfort in knowing that God was at my side regardless of the difficulties I faced. Know that in the midst of difficult life-issues, God will give you strength and hope. Everything that we do for God will last; we must endure to the end.

Do you have someone who you are caring for? What can you tell us about your journey with your loved one?
