A couple days ago, I was having a really fun birthday. Then, it seemed to take a dive into a dark place. It was no fault of my own, just an unfortunate situation turned ugly. At this point there is a rift in my family and really nothing I can do about it.
You have to know when to sit back and let God handle a situation. This one does not require action on my part. I am the only one I have any kind of control over. I cannot change someone else's thinking. All I can do is pray and that is not a small thing. Worlds change with prayer.
While this person is blaming me and my husband for something we did not create, I am at peace. Oh, it's on my mind and heart, just not in a sick, disturbing way. I don't know how it will resolve, I do know that if I start trying to fix it, all hell will break loose.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is nothing. I have made the decision to pray and leave it in God's hands. The worst that can happen is I feel okay and the relationship stays broken. I do not believe this will be the result. I believe all things are possible with God. He doesn't need my help with this one.
I close this morning fantasizing peace and joy in my family. We'll see what happens!
