I will pray

The weekend proved to be an interesting one for the family. I have seen so much in my life, but nothing quite like this before with someone so close. I am just praying for God's will to be done. I am not sure how to handle these emotions I am feeling. I just wished that they would see how much care we have and that we are not condemning them. They are on my mind constantly. I am crying constantly in prayer. I know that God is good and I know that he is bigger and stronger, but at times I feel my faith slip. Why? Maybe because the world says so. Maybe because I have seen other outcomes in this situation go horribly wrong and I can't help but feel like this one will go the same. Regardless of all of these emotions, I am praying for strength and the realization of the situation. Sometimes I get entirely too emotional, but this time it is extremely different. It is so not about us looking like we care, but that we do care so very much.The world is so corrupt and evil and it can get ahold of any of us. Until we can see some changes, I will diligently pray. I will seek the Lord and sing and praise Him. I will remember those that cannot care for themselves and hope that they are in His hands. All in all, He is the one we will answer to in the end. I pray that I can stand up tall and say that I did Him proud in my short days here on this earth and that He will say, "Well done, my good and faithful servant."

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-3
