Pray.......

Post by ThisIsSparta on Sat May 02, 2009 11:52 am

today, i had what i hope to be the LAST fight i EVER have with my dad.


today was the worst.


my dad got on to me for NOT going to school this week...i'm not a child...i'm 21 years old...i NEVER wanted to go to college...my dad MADE me.


yes, my abusive father has MADE me and RULED OVER ME all of my life.


it's gotten proggresively worse these last 3 years...


my dad is the SINGLE MOST destructive force in my life...


he is a psycho...he WON'T let me be independent...he WON'T let me live my own life...he WON'T let me make my own decisions(no matter what it's for)...he WON'T even let me make my own mistakes.

i have been praying and crying today...as i have been for the past 3 years but even more than that.


i want to be FREE of this man...


i want to be FREE of my lacking.


COMPLETE and PRECIOUS freedom.


my dad has made another ultimatum...get a FULL TIME JOB/GO TO SCHOOL or GET OUT!


it is so hard to find a job.


i need God's LOVING deliverance.

Sparta -

I will pray for you as well.

I have a side question - if your father weren't an issue, what would you be doing career wise? Don't worry about training, education, experience...if you could become anything you wanted to careerwise, what would you be doing?

Blessings,

Lurdys

when i was in highschool, it NEVER once came to my mind what i should do or wanted to do afterwards, i didn't think about it...

I pray GOd give you a peace of mind and you and your dad can have a better relationship!! I know how you feel!! igrew up in a controlling house and also abusive but through it all GOd has and still is healing me, because of this trying time I had. The minstry in me will be so powerful. GIft of healing, deliverance, teaching, and many others. I think you should ask GOd WHAT ARE YOUR GIFTS AND FIND OUT WHAT IS YOUR PASSION AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS. I think once your da see being productive he will back off. then pehaps you can start making money and then move out. I pray peace for you in Jesus Name.

Maybe it's time that you do. Your dad was obligated to take care of you until you got grown. You're 21 years old now and he is no longer obligated to take care of you because just as you said; you are not a child.

As long as you're under his roof...you're under his rules.

I believe that Christianity is about realtionships with one another. You get the relationship aspect wrong, your whole life goes wrong. I think you should work on the relationship aspect of your life. Make it right, both with parents, friends and with God, then you will see aturn around in your life's circumstances. You will start enjoying the benefits of being a son of God. Pray that God helps you to get that aspect right!!

Love,
NM

Shalom My Friend,
Do not feel sad..all can be fix..I know what I am going to tell you will not have a sense in your brain...but trust me...the soft word calm down the rage spirit..Humble yourself in front of your Dad ,,For Jesus our God..
Perhaps your situation is hard now..no where were you can find support..no independence..I have been there too..
But humble yourself..despite all ,I know your dad doesn't mean evil..perhaps there are things missing in his life too..
Do not judge..do not let others to measure with the same rule..
Do as I say ,,and you will see the Lord working on your behalf..
The pride is the devil's seed..I am praying to my God For you . Do not fear and do not despair..
Many will give it all for have a chance to go to school..think about the Lord ..because all authority is giving from above..you don't know if it is the Lord bringing up all this..
As long as you remain faithful to the word of the Lord ...Honor your father and mother...no evil has power over your relationship..or you..
You will overcome this evil by the word of the testimony ..and the Blood of Jesus..because you are submitting yourself to Jesus..Do not waste this opportunity in front of heaven to show you are ready for great things...the Humble heart will be rewarded with honors..
Remember your Dad is your blood..perhaps He had problem communicating..but deep in his heart he means no evil...He suffers as much as you do...perhaps he sees your potential..and you don't
Trust me my friend and follow my advice..I know is hard..but Do it for Jesus..beacuse He loves you...and also to receive the blessing you must be in line with his word..
the Lord wants to bless you ...don't let the sun come down without settling this issue in peace..courage my friend ..walk trought your mountain that your reward is at the doors.
Faith my brave friend..Jesus Warned us about this..the more you seek ,more things are going to be shaken...but do not fear ..teach the devil...a lesson today he come to steal and kill..but with your behaviour you will be telling him...not only of bread a man shall live..but from all the word that cometh from the mouth of Jehovah.
Courage!!!
Jesus assures you Victory..
Shalom...

Do (did) you attend an online university or were you attending an in-class setting?

My reason for asking is this.

You say your dad won't allow you to be an adult and he doesn't let you make your own decisions. You made the decision to quit school.

If you're in the in-class setting (where you go to class with an instructor and other students), that is time away from your dad. Have you checked into work-study programs (jobs) to keep you busy?

yes, i quit school yesterday.


it was in-class.


school's not important, finding ADEQUATE employment is important.


i have to make a certain amount of money to be able to live on my own...that's just common sense.


again, is THIS what GOD wants me doing? WHAT DOES GOD WANT ME TO DO?!?!


when NOBODY is hiring or an employer TURNS ME DOWN even when they ARE hiring...it makes me wonder what god REALLY wants.

So you quit school (actually doing something that will enhance your ability to get adequate employment that will also provide stability) to do what? Look for a job? Does that take all day? Was that using common sense? Now you're at home ALL DAY doing nothing. More ammunition for your dad to lay it on thick at your expense.


when NOBODY is hiring or an employer TURNS ME DOWN even when they ARE hiring

You know this, yet in still you quit school. Were you failing? Were you unable to pay for it (i.e. grants, scholarships, loans..etc.)?

Stop blaming God. If you are seeking God for answers; did He tell you to quit school?

Lord I pray to You this morning..Asking forgiveness and help on behalf my friend in Jesus here..Only you search the hearts and understand the motives..Be mercifull even if we do not deserve it..
Do not send us away with empty hands...because we seek your face..knowing that you are God and there is none like you in the heavens..
Show to him your peace and guidance that is need it at this moment..
We are sheeps of your flocks..and you promise to help us..hear us in the day of trouble according to your faithfullness
In you Oh Lord is my hope..I know Father that you will attend my pray and will grant me the request ...
open father the doors that has been closed...show to my friend the way he should go...let this be your will..and give him wisdom and peace,
so he can acknowledge your ways. I ask you all this in the name of Jesus..
Thank you Father because we know help is in the way..
Thank You lord..
