Offended by Love and a Prayer Request

Photo by Ric Rodrigues on

I visited a friend of mine today. She mentioned something about people today being offended by God. What? I almost screamed! Your God, who gave you life and blessings… they’re offended by that? I just couldn’t wrap my head around it! To be honest, I still can’t. While I believe people should be on their knees thanking God for all He has done for them, some people are actually offended by love? Well, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, people? Seriously! A little common sense, please!

I will admit that I am farther on my faith journey than others I have met, and yes, I truly believe that faith is a gift, I was still shocked by her statement. So, my question is, how do we turn them around so that they are not offended by love, but yet can accept it and pass it on?

Prayer. I know. I use this answer a lot but really, can there be too much prayer in this world?

This brings me to the second part of this post. I would like to ask you to pray very loudly to God for my firstborn. I have reason to believe that she is going down a very bad path, and I’m terribly worried about her. Yes, I know that good always triumphs over evil, but I’m still scared for her. I don’t think she has any clue what she is getting herself into, and since she is an adult, the options I have for helping her are very limited.

So, please pray for her and for our family. God loves us and keeps us always. I’m just hoping she’ll open her eyes and see that! Thank you.
