Lord how Can I Give Them Up

Lord How Can I Give Them Up?

Lord, can I give them up? They're part of my heart.

Lord,can I give them up to follow Satan's wicked way?

God reminds me they are making their own choice,

As an adult that I ,as a parent ,no longer have a say.

If you take them,don't send them ,to God's House ,

And you teach them of God's Love and His word.,

Then they know of His wonderful Love and Mercy

You have no blame ,they have seen and heard

Why do they reject God? Why do they turn away?

The force of Satan holds like a powerful band.

If we give him a chance to get to our loved ones,

He will try to steal them right out of our hand.

God's Power is greater ,no evil can harm them

When we' re holding them up to God in prayer.

With God's Love surrounding ,Satan finds defeat.

Pull them from God's Hands, Satan wouldn't dare.!



****************************************************


With all of the evil in this world now how many

parents the world over are crying over their

children now? many tears have been shed ,

many prayers have been sent up to Heaven,

and many sleepless nights have been spent.

We know that God gave man free will and there

will be some who are lost and will never come

back to God. When you are the parent and it

is your children who are lost it would be so

hard to even think about losing them forever.

Only prayer can bring them to repent.We

all need to pray !!

Another great hub. I preached to a father today, a stranger I never before met. Do not be afraid, brothers and sisters, to preach where you feel the Holy Spirit move you.

Hub Pages, YouTube, blogging, the mall, the grocery market... anywhere and everywhere, the Holy Spirit knows what to do and has a desire for hearts to turn to God.

This is very timely. I have two at risk (one more so), and they both know better. The tide of our culture is strong. I almost went under myself. I always keep that in mind. Also,"Even when we are unfaithful, God remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself."

You are on fire. In the Lord, you never retire. Now you have me doing it.

I try to put one poem on a day , I was putting 2 on but I think I will do one every day now that I can I never thought this world would get this bad but I know in the last days it is supposed to so I guess we can't expect any improvement.I am putting these poems on but I don't know how much good they will do , I hope to touch a lot of hearts but if they just read and forget them I won't be helping that much I want to really get to them so they will come to God, I am glad to see so many people o n here that seem to be really interested in my work ,I shouldn't say my work because God gives me the idea and then He lets me finish the poem ,I had better get off of here now , thanks a lot for your message , I need all the help I can get.Clara

Train up a child in the way of the Lord, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Hello Ann, That is the way it used to be but unfortunately it doesn't always work that way anymore. I have known some preachers with children and some of them stayed true to God and some slipped along the way. I think most of them did return to God and some I am not sure about.Satan is running rampart now and trying to get all of the young people that he can., We just have to pray that they will all come to The Lord and repent.Thanks for your comment. Have a good night .clara

Sky9106, I am sorry it has take n this long to thank you for your comment,my computer has been messing up and I am not too good at fixing it.

I know you are supposed to raise them so they will not depart but in this day it is very hard for some of them to stay true to God. They do not learn much of anything good in school anymore ,The teachers cannot speak of God and the children can't be punished,it used to be spare the rod and spoil the child but that has been abolished ,too. We have to take them to The Lord in prayer at all times . Thank you , clara

Thanks so much Clara . You are so correct the way you put it yes they are quite hard to handle and that's why we are to be better and handling our ouw selves so that they won't be allowed to change us . But instead , they will harden their hearts and come to regret later , mostly all of the God fearing children have gone on the graduate and live the most beautiful lives ,It our duty to simply so them and don't l3t them change you. That will be two filled with excuses . Bless

"Good luck with your computer" they can be a pain.

Blessings.

Sky9106, Thank you for getting back to me,We are living in a very bad day to try to raise children. I am glad that I am way beyond that .I have grandchildren and great grandchildren now and it can't be easy for them this day and age. Satan is trying his hardest because he knows he does not have too much longer to do his evil deeds . It is a bad time for parents now. The sad part of it is so many of the parents either don't know or don't care what is really going on now .

I have 3 books on computers and sometimes I am using them all trying to get this working right.I wish they had a button that you could push and the computer would jump back to life , It doesn't work that way so sometimes I just shut it down for the night.thanks , clara
