I think your story speaks to the heart of anyone who has a brother they love and wants the best for them, which is ultimately the salvation of Christ. You told this story with love and grace. Very good work.
Wonderfully done and speaks to the way our love for those who have turned from the Lord may make the difference in helping them turning back.
I love your repetition of "stop" - with the different meanings entirely. Thank you for sharing this with us.
I know the deep concern of having unsaved family members, and have prayed for your brother.
Julia, this is a heart-wrenching story of love and pain and hope and trust. Your love for your brother, and your prayers for him WILL be rewarded. He was there for you when you were five. Now you are there for him...I know the pain of a brother who is astranged from the Lord. God knows. He loves. He understands. I told my brother (half-brother) the same as you did. "God loves you and so do I. I am praying for you." He said Thank You. Your brother may not have said that outloud, but he did in his heart. God will answer your prayers...I've seen it happen....Thanks for your comments on my challenge piece...Helen
