My son is almost 18 now. He has a 1 year old son that lives with us also. He wants to move out on his own and yet I don't feel like he's ready to do that. He still thinks like a teenager and he so quick to leave his baby with just anyone. The thought of it just scares me so much. They're so many wicked people out there, and trying to explain this to him is like talking to a brick wall. He thinks since he's fixing to turn 18, he can go anywhere and do anything he wants to do, and when I try to put the brakes on it makes him want to move even more so. He just informed me he wanted to go out for his birthday to a bar, even though he said he wasn't going to drink, yeah right. I tried to tell him he needed to think about his son and turn his life around. Everything just turns into an argument with him. I know he has to make his own decisions and decide whether to serve God on his own. I try to tell him his decisions don't just effect him anymore but his son.
I had a dream one night after going to bed with all this on my mind. I dreamt it had flooded and my son was floating down the stream on a main street. I was above him and I was talking to someone. I was saying, "See, I can't see everything, I can't know where he's at all the time, I can't be everywhere, but God can." "He sees and knows everything, and can be everywhere at one time." When I woke up, I just kept hearing in my heart and spirit that God had everything under control. I felt such peace. I have to keep reminding myself of this dream when I start to feel anxious. Everytime I look at my precious grandson, I have to keep praying and asking God to allow my son to move when He sees fit. I know God doesn't cross our wills, but I trust that He will keep my son and grandson.
After all the things I've been through with my son, I know God is able to keep both of them. I just don't wont something bad to happen to my grandson for him to see the error of his ways. Keep me in prayer as well as my son and grandson. Pray I will continue to leave them in God's hands and not be anxious. Pray for my sons salvation in Jesus name.
thanx
