I need your prayers!

Hi friends, I have been so busy, working my two jobs and with my mom. But mom is finally home so
things are getting better for her. I am usually quiet about things I am going though and keep it to myself,
but I need your prayers for me to have strength and for my daughter. She battles "Diabulemia"
She struggles with this every day. She will do good for awhile and then relapse again. This has been off and on for ten years now. I just wish sometimes I would to to sleep and never wake up. I don't know what to do any more. I have prayed and prayed and begged and begged God for her deliverance.
And to make it worse she has no insurance, so overall help is out of the question.
I just feel so helpless setting back and watching my daughter slowly die, but that is what I feel like I am doing. And I know she honestly can't help it as crazy as it may sound, it is really a mental disorder.
And it doesn't just effect her it effects the whole family.
Just wanted to get it off my chest. But I will never stop praying and trusting that one day this will be over,
and some way somehow she can help others going through the same battle.

  1. Sending up extra prayers.I know it's hard watching someone you love make what seems like a senseless choice destroying their life and health.It's good you understand the impulse is mental and not something she wants to actually do.Keep praying and loving her unconditionally.Look into some mental help that maybe charges on a sliding scale as well.Big Hugs for you sweet friend!~Amy

  17. Lecia, I will keep you and Steph in my prayers. I know how hard it is to watch your children deal with things that we feel like we have no control over. And I too have a situation where I have been praying for God's deliverance. Sometimes we lose hope but we have to keep our eyes on Jesus not on our circumstances. I often remind myself that God loves my child more than I do, thats hard to understand but so true.. You are a dear and precious friend to many and truly loved. Please know we love and care about you.

    PS thank you for caring about us here in Oklahoma I appreciate your prayers for us.

  18. It is difficult when someone you know is going through such impossible times but when it is your child, well, it is heartbreaking. You are eons ahead of many others in that you really understand that it is not a choice. Just love her and the kids. Give all your worries over to God. Only He can divine the direction of our lives. He will take care of Steph. I agree with Prairie Rose. God loves her more than anyone else can. You are on my prayer list, Lecia. Big hugs....

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
