I have 2 daughters Rhonda 17 and Shelby 15 and my brothers son that has had a hard life Micheal 15 who recently joined are family. I see the effects of Rob my husband being gone rear its ugly head when comes to Rhonda and Shelby. Rhonda is being temped by peers that she is newly meeting. Shelby is newly finally seeking for God to show himself to her and I believe she has a low opinion of herself. I feel so alone and discouraged, and see all the ways The lord would like to use me. Please pray for my family a hedge of protection, growth, and wisdom and strength. please pray for me brother and sisters in Christ. Because I can do nothing with out the lord, and all things with him who strengthens me. Bless you and yours for blessing me and my family.

Aloha sister Melissa,

My best advise to you is to pay attention to your family. You are between a rock and a hard place, and in this case your family must come first.

Trying to handle all of the problems that you have spoken about is hard enough for two parents, and nearly impossible for one (especially with "teenagers"). Your husband needs to come home and see to his own family.

It's all well and good to witness and have Bible studies, but both you and your husband should not be neglecting your family in order to do them.

I pray that the Lord will reveal His will to both of you, and that you will be able to keep your family together. My wife and I have raised 7 children to adulthood and know what a heartache that can be.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
