My Son has reappeared, BUT….

I want to thank my readership, for the overwhelming response that I received regarding my post entitled Grown Children.  This post received the most comments, most of which were words of encouragement.  Many of you were praying with me, that he would return… and he has BUT

There are times when people choose to walk out of our lives. Unfortunately, they also walk away from God. Our prayer is that they come back to God and God will let us know whether they will come back to us. Everything is for His Purpose!….Sometimes, He removes people to make our life better, because they are in the way of what God wants us to do.  There are other times that they are removed so that we don’t interfere with what God is trying to do in their lives.       —— Quote by Candy S.

One of the comments I made was that I pray that my son comes back to God, even if he doesn’t come back to me.  This is truly not, not yet, the story of the Prodigal Son returns….  My son did not leave on the best of terms.  As a parent, there are certain things that are expected, even of grown children and other things that will NOT be accepted or tolerated in my house.  So my son and I parted ways.  I accept full responsibility for my actions and I still stand behind my decision.

I love my son and I sorta kinda/maybe long for the day that he calls me “Mom” again…. But the Lord is not through with us yet!

Please continue to keep us in your prayers!

  1. Candy, I know the struggles of which you speak, and can only pray that the answers are found. We are going through much the same with our daughter. I can only believe that there is a plan for everything. I will send a prayer up for your family.

    • Rhonda, Of course I will accept. Thanks for thinking enough of the my blog to nominate me. I am truly honored and glad that my blog has inspired you. Thanks again and continued blessings to you and yours!

  2. Wow…..I needed to read that and know that I am not alone. I too have a broken relationship with my two sons and your opening line really touched my heart. Thank you for encouraging words. Over time, I have come to realize that I know that I love them and for now that’s just going to have to be enough. Your family is certainly in my prayers. God is truly doing His work.

  3. In the past couple of months, the Lord has brought several ladies into my life, all with the same issue, their sons have all turned from the Lord and or turned from their family entirely. I do not have any sons but my brothers have both turned away from the Lord. I keep praying for all of these ladies and I know God is up to something because there are no such things as coincidences. I always tell the lady friends I have going through the same thing that in the first part of Jeremiah 29:14 the Lord tells us WE WILL FIND HIM! Your sons, they will find God, but that day will not come when we want it to, it will only come when God wants it to come. All we can do is pray for that day. I am adding your sons to my prayers for that day with all the others.

    • That is an awesome Word that needed to be shared. God is up to something… I say it all the time. I believe that there is a great calling on these men and they will come back to God in His time. God has asked me to step aside and allow Him to do His work. Thank you so much especially for the prayers and I will do the same for you and your family.

  4. Keeping you and your son in my prayers. He and you will be ok because you are concerned about the right thing (his soul). Too often people compromise to please others and in the long run hurt themselves and the other person. Keep the faith and your faith will continue to keep you.

    • Thank you so much for the prayer and the special offer to be there if I need you. I will say a prayer for you and your family also, prayer is never wasted. 🙂

  5. I understand completely. We do the best we can to teach them but when they are grown they have to make their own decisions. It’s just so hard to watch them make the wrong ones. You try to warn them but for some reason they think when they reach a certain age that we ( the parents) don’t know any thing. Now we had enough knowledge, skills, resources, intelligence… to get you to this point but all of a sudden we don’t know anything? Funny how that works.

  6. I have learned that there are two things in life – Love and Fear. Try and look at him with only love. It sound like you already do. As soon as I wrapped my brain around that concept, it helped me a LOT with my daughter. Namaste, Joie

    • Thanks Joie for the wording of encouragement. What you say is so true. You never really stop loving them. I really don’t think that we could if we tried. But I really don’t like him right now! Now I just have to be patience and allow time to pass. Thanks again!
