God is so Amazing!
From worship music lyrics to the message yesterday---all was very clearly and specifically in response to our family predicament. God is soooo good!!
Pastor taught on Judges 13 "Parenting in Enemy Territoy" [the story of Samson's parents].
Basically we as parents can doing everything right and still have children that choose to go against God's ways. That may not be so great to contemplate but at least it restored our confidence that we have been doing the right things.
Well---DD heard the message too and was highly convicted. She wrote the guy a long message and they talked over the internet last night. He decided that since she wanted to listen to us that they should break it off. She is sad but in the long run this will be a healthy thing.
I in no way believe that this is 100% over since at any time this guy could come back and talk to us in a different way and we will have to sit up and pay attention. The part that relieves my heart is that DD is listening to God [and us as her authority]. Also she now knows why we have encouraged her not to give her heart away too soon. The pain is horrendous.
