Should I Continue to Trust in God?

Updated on June 8, 2010

The answer is yes! and besides what are my choices. Trusting in God is always the best answer.

As of late, I've been preoccupied with worry and I have to go back and read some of the stuff I wrote about trusting in God. I hope I don't sound like a total hipocrate but yeah I have been losing hope, (just a little). When you come against life's big problems you have to think "ok God, What is your plan?" I'm scared, I am really scared. Well, here goes and please don't pass judgement only your prayers. It is such a long, long story and of course a mother always blames themselves for anything bad happening. Anyway, I have two grown children 23 and 25, two boys. One of them is facing a prison sentence for the selling of cocaine and a weapons charge ( a pellet gun). The lawyer said probably 2 years. His court date is on July 6, 2010 and he is terrified and so am I. I don't think he should go unpunished, but think jail will change him forever. Since he was arrested- (1 year ago) he has been staying out of trouble and has disassociated himself from that whole lifestyle. He does not live with me and hasn't since he was 18) but we talk daily and I see him once or twice a week.

I am standing on this verse-

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I ask you all to agree in prayer with me for his safety and that he will put all his trust in the Lord.

      Hello Sky, sorry it took me so long to get back. My modem broke, and I had to wait four days for a new one; it just got here today, and I've been trying to catch up. Perhaps he will get only probation and drug court. Lets pray for that since jail does not teach young men how to be better men, but exposes them instead to more misguided people. He can leave drugs behind and never go back, and many of us have done so. Quill was an addict at one time, and I was a serious stimulant drug user. There is a better life for your son, and lets pray that jail is not necessary or part of the plan. Also, Sky, doubt is part of faith. If we had no doubt, we would need no faith. Being honest does not make you a hypocrite, but human. Join the human race. (: v

      I will pray for you and your sons. Know that The lord will not always answer our prayers. Because he knows what is best for us. So we must trust in him that he will carry us even when we do not realize it.So yes your prayer will be answered, He will take care of you and your sons, even if you do not see it for what it is. Trust in the Lord. He loves you.

      Thanks sky2day, it is a good idea. We have ateen challenge centre here and this is another option. The thing is he never used the drug(due to an allergic reaction when he tried it) he was more addicted to the money he was making and he drinks alot now. Apparently, the jails are really full here right now so sometimes they send people to the teen challenge facility for there jail sentence. Of course, this would be so much better. Thank you for praying. We need it. Thank you for caring- to everyone.

      Sky Hey sister. There is no mistake I am here. I will pray for your son and your family as well. Has you son considered going to a long term, non profit live in treatment center? My husband went to Salvation Army and the judge was impressed.

      David had a slip before program ended, so he may face jail because he blew it. Please pray for him too. God is going to direct us. He may go to another long term program. It is a christian program. It is by far, much better then jail.

      This young man I spoke with today was in long term treatment. 'Restoration Outreach'. A non profit. You live there a year. Bible studies, so on. He was very happy. He got no time. He was facing 30 years gangs and drugs. If your son was pro active and went to the treatment the judge may consider that is much better then jail for all involved. God is Big. Just a thought. Life is so hard at times. I know sweetie. If it was not how would Christ comfort? He said we would have difficulties. He will NEVER leave nor forsake us.

      Check out my hub Ready to fight the fight. I was under attack, big times. I decided to stand on the ROCK I stood for battle. Be Blessed Sky. There is power in prayer so anyone reading pray for sky's son. My Love and Hugs.

      You have great courage and are humble, transparent, loving and kind. Thank You for sharing your Spirit. Get on the rock Sky. Climb up there sister. I LOVE YOU GOD LOVES YOU AND YOUR SON.

      Sky thanks for this Hub!

      Trusting God does not depend on circumstances. Good or bad we should trust him for Romans 8:28 can never be wrong. We Christians can't be free from trials but why worry when there is God who will never leave us nor forsake us.

      God bless!

      "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God (I will praise his word), I God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?"--Ps. 56:3-4. Or to boil it down to essentials, When I am afraid I trust God; then I will not fear. So yes, trusting God will banish your fear and not trusting God will leave you in its grip. But I can see you already know that and have already made your decision. Thanks for sharing and being vulnerable to your faith community.

      Sky321, Yes! Most definitely "Trust God!" We are to ALWAYS PRAY and not faint!

      This is unfortunate but perhaps this will continue to serve as a deterrent! The thought of jail being frightening to him is great! Perhaps you can talk to him and pray with him about giving his life to the Lord? ( or rededicating it?) This could be a fresh new start either way? Just maybe he will end up doing community service in lieu of jail time! Talk with him about setting some possible goals …

      Be encouraged! “All things are possible with the Lord!” My prayers and thoughts are with you! In His Love, Peace & Blessings!
