    You are not only my Pastor but my encourager as well. I have had those thoughts..”.He’s a lost cause…she is a lost cause”.
    I do sometimes weary of repitious prayer of “Lord, open their eyes that they might see what they are missing.” I think He must weary of the constant plea as well.
    Guess that prayer is wrong…it should be “open their eyes that they be convited and will fall to their knees before you Lord and surrender wholly to you Lord thatt they might find joy in their salvation.” Thank you for your blogs. I am always wanting to know each day your thoughts for that day. Most of the time, :I am sure you worte them with me in mind’. I know I am just a work in progress…(wrong word).

    I am struggling with this so severly right now. I too know what its like to be so far gone that it really did take an act of God to bring me to salvation. I am dealing with some one very close to me right now that is in a very similar place. This person, in their state of mind and heart, is damaging their own life and hurting people that I love very much. I have been praying and praying and the human in me is beginning to become overwhelmed. Is there more than trusting in God and prayer that can be done? I know that I myself can not do it. It is only by the willingness of this person’s heart and the power of God that will bring her back home but I’m so tempted in the meantime to walk away to avoid falling into the temptation of anger and bitterness. How far do we go to not give up on some one that NEEDS a second chance? How far does one go in “turning the other cheek”? It is difficult to watch some one you love self destruct. And I am starting to feel that this person will never let go of herself. Its heartbreaking.

    Very true. I, too, was once a partying fool and with God’s intervention, changed course. …. And this is what makes it all the more disheartening when my cynical side is slow (to no) in believing when another person “changes”. If God can – and DID – change me….. Why can He not change some other wayward soul? I do need to give an opportunity to anyone who professes Jesus as Lord and is changed. Not that I need to abandon all reason, as people who walk on the wild side are keenly adept in saying/doing things that they think others want to hear, but to give the benefit of the doubt
