You Cannot Fight Alone

I had a conversation the other day involving my concern for a loved one. My thoughts were confounded because this young person has been given and shown the good way of life. Some how along the way, the negative character flaws have surfaced. The lying, cheating, stealing. You ask yourself why? I have given this child everything I could so that he or she can have a better life. So that this child does not make the same mistakes I made. As a matter of fact I can remember when my mother & father said and showed us these very things. As a teenager we thought to ourselves "what do they know"? The bottom line here is, we are no match for this battle. We have to give it to God. We have to know in our hearts that we have done the absolute best that we could. We have to know that we will never give up. And we have to pray to God for the hedge of protection. Psalms 86: 6-7 God give ear to my prayer and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my troubles I will call upon you. I know you will answer.I cannot fight this alone. Amen
