View Full Version : Prayer Needed Hurting Hearts

Sep 25th 2008, 12:27 AM
Thirteen years ago almost to the day whilst hanging out the washing God said to me "go across the road, you have to go with Penny tomorrow night" This was a Saturday, and I had no idea where on earth Penny would be going on a Sunday night, let alone if Penny was even home, let alone if I was even hearing things or not. However, the force that was propelling me forward couldn't be ignored, so off I ventured, leaving the clothes half hung out and half in the basket, thinking to myself this woman is going to think I'm crazy when I knock at her door saying I just got told this message, uh, don't know what to do about it........ You see we had only just me really a week before this and only just had an intimate conversation the day before. Did you think God was in a hurry?!!

To cut a long story short, Penny was home, and Penny was going to church the next night, so off I went with her, and I began to know the Lord slowly but surely. God gave me several gifts that day, not just the gift of Himself, but also the gift of Penny and her husband Gerry. They became my surrogate mum and dad that I never ever had. They filled my life with the love and support that I never received and to top it all off, as each of my children were born they adopted them as their grandchildren.

Today is heartbreaking for me. Poppa Gerr died last night from cancer. A true example of the father I never had, the love and laughter and so many good times has just slipped by so quickly and my heart is broken into a thousand pieces. Why do all the good ones go home and the ones who well you know ripped you to pieces are still left here? I know I speak from grief, but we all need prayer right now. Nanna Penny needes prayer to get through this difficult time, my kids need prayer they loved him so much it's rocked their world too. Sorry to go on, I'll stop now, thanks for listening, Soulangel

Thank you everyone for your love and much appreciated support at this time. We travelled away to the funeral up north Monday just gone and supported the family and our three very distressed children through a very difficult time. It makes your heart break into a trillion pieces when your teenage son is sobbing his heart out and your daughter has tears pouring out of her eyes endlessly. Even tho' they know Poppa is in heaven with Jesus it doesn't take away the pain of loss for them and for me holding it all together for them, to support them, well I praise God for the strength that I could do it at all, I praise him for the words that just seem to come at the right time to comfort them, because I was lost and in pain myself. Praise the Lord for mending their tiny hearts. ~ Linda xoxoxooxo

Linda :hug: I am praying for you all... for Penny, you and the kids. :pray: I'm so sorry you lost someone so dear. It's hard to be "the rock" that holds up your family, especially when you're hurting, yourself. Please keep leaning on Christ..... rest in Him. I'll be keeping you folks in my prayers. :hug:
