The day has come for us to drive to Atlanta and pick up our daughter. She will be discharged from the Residential Care Facility at 9 am tomorrow. We are traveling with our 15 year old son and will be heading out in a few hours. I am very anxious about what we may experience in the coming days. I lay our situation in God's hands, but still find myself stressed about her returning home. I am sitting here listening to worship music and enjoying a peaceful morning, as I have every morning for the past 2 months. I want these peaceful mornings to continue in our home and I pray that God will move so that we may continue to have peace in our home. It is sad how mentally exhausted my wife and I are when peace is gone from our home. We have been recharged over the past few months and will cling to God and each other to maintain peace in our home. We will lift each other up and help each other when situations arise that cause us anger and frustration.
Lord, help Kelly and I to look first to you for strength and also to one another. Lord, help us to not allow anger and frustration to come between us. Help us instead to grow stronger together and closer to you each day. Help us Lord to hide your word in our hearts so that we may stand strong against the tricks of the enemy. Lord, touch our daughter and help her to see the love we have for her. Let her know we are on her side and want her to have a blessed and productive life. Lord, watch over us as we travel to get our daughter and carry us home safely. In Jesus name, Amen.
