my fortress...

For those of you who read my other blog, you know I am having problems with my eldest again. I spent many hours worrying about what I should do and how I should handle it last night. You also may remember that a friend gave me a box with bible verses in to read at different times in my life. I came across Ps. 31 verses 1-6
In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.

2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.

I read that over a few times and thought about it then laid the bible down and fell fast alsleep. I have done all I can do and it is in God's hands now. I feel no guilt about thinking that way. I have not given up on her. I will continue to pray for her but I cannot be dragged down by her. I will not allow it. Sometimes you do all you can do and just have to say enough is enough.
