Get Out!!

Satan came knocking yesterday.


Well...he didn't knock...he barged right in. AGAIN!


This time he's after my son. David is facing some very, VERY tough consequences for a choice he made. But satan would like to use this to turn David even further away from the Lord.


I am declaring war. David is not up for grabs. As a young child he prayed to receive Christ and I believe that he is sealed, a child of God and belongs to Jesus. This could be a turning point in David's life. I want to believe that it will be!


Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil 1:6


Please pray with me that I will parent as God leads me. That David will have remorse for his actions. Pray for mercy on Friday as he has to face the judge. (literally) I have always known that God has huge plans for David's life and I will not let satan win. He may be winning some of the battles but he won't win the war.


Thanks for joining me in the fight! Let's slam the door on the evil one.

Praying with you and for David. It's always amazing to me how God can take what the enemy plans for evil and turn it around for good and for His glory!

Psalm 54.. Save me, O God, by your name;vindicate me by your might. Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
Strangers are attacking me; ruthless men seek my life— men without regard for God.
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.
Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them. I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you;I will praise your name, O LORD,for it is good.For he has delivered me from all my troubles,and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes..

I am claiming GOD's word for David and this situation..We know who the only help is..Love ya!

I'm praying, Sheryl! Praying the judge will show David great mercy, and that this experience will renew his relationship with God.

Oh my goodness, of course I will be praying for you and your David!!! He is a great kid (haven't we all made a bad decision a time or two in our life?) and God won't let him go, that I know for sure!

Hugs - Diane

Sheryl I have been there with my son too! I can't say it worked out the way I wanted , but God did good! That was 7 or 8 years ago and long forgotten except my son learned from that is serving God right now! I know David will do the same. We have an awesome God! I will be praying for you and David. I feel the mother needs just as much as the son!

Amen! Slamming the door right now! I will be praying for David this week and for you. May God be with your family and keep you safe. Take care my friend!

Erin said...

Praying...God will surely finish what He started. I am a perfect example of that. Don't lose heart, don't lose faith and don't stop believing in the Great Redeemer.

Just a little something from Judy said...

As I start my day, my prayers are being prayed. God loves your son even more than you do, as impossible as that sounds, it is true. We just studied Psalms 139. I am sure God has a very special plan for your good looking son. Thanks for the privilege of praying for you and him.

Cheryl said...

I remember what your wise mother said a long time ago, 'God can't use you greatly until He has hurt you deeply.' Sorry for your current struggles but excited to see how God will use them to glorify Himself.

I am glad you have so many godly women supporting you through this! We are so fortunate to be members of God's family. How does the world cope without God and the fellowship of believers??

Oh friend...count me in...I'm STORMING THE GATE OF HEAVEN...right along with you!!!!!

Sonja said...

Sheryl, I'm praying with you for David, for a fair and good judge who will be lead to lenience and that this experience will help David for the rest of his life, as he weighs the outcome of his choices. David is not alone... it's a constant reminder for all of us. "Choose you this day who you will serve"...
Thanks for sharing and letting us share with you.
Sonja

JD said...

Praying for both of you through this difficult season, Sheryl -- you're a great mom, he's a great son -- this doesn't change either of those things.

Kelly said...

I am praying for you and David. I am praying that Satan runs away FAST and does not come back and leaves you and your family alone. I pray that David learns from his mistake and grows closer to God. God knows that we all make mistakes and that is why he sent his son. God loves David and I believe he will be using him for GOOD!!!

The Blue Sparrow said...

Praying with you for David! God will overcome and turn every bad thing into something positive for His glory. *HUGS*

Technonana said...

Praying and Fighting for Our children is what we are called to do!! Praying for you and David today!!

Sassy Granny ... said...

One thing I'm sure of: the enemy had best not mess with you! He apparently doesn't understand how solid is your faith, or how far you've walked with the Lord - - the SAME Lord that's given His angels charge over you.

May God's right hand snatch young son from the world's grip.

Blessings & hugs,
Kathleen

Peace to you, friend.
