What to do?

If we open our home to someone do we have the right to place stipulations to their stay? I say yes.

If they have a home that they pay rent to live in (apartment) but their drinking is effecting their work ethic do we need to take them in our home to stay as they continue in their ways?

What if they have a family that just can’t deal with it any more? Is it our”turn”?

When are we enabling them to continue to self destructive?

When do we let them hit rock bottom?

Ugh… 😞

LORD, please give me the wisdom I need for this situation that will glorify and honor you!!!

A Person I Was Dealing With Yesterday

I am beginning to understand that if one does not believe in God’s sovereignty they will also not believe that they are sinning against Him. The person I was dealing with LOVINGLY is an alcoholic that was forced to go to AA and never really quit drinking ☹️. I did not point out this person’s alcoholism because this person said they didn’t want to drink anymore but can’t imagine life with out alcohol. This person said they just wanted to be “normal” so I didn’t feel led to discuss their drinking. I felt led to share the testimony God has given me to share in times such as this. They seemed thankful but did not want to talk about God ( avoiding that). But I know this person read what The Good Lord did for me when I was drowning in my own muck and more. I also know God doesn’t force His love on us this person needs to understand that God forgives and loves us unlike the world.
DEAR LORD- AS THIS PERSON GOES OUT INTO THE WORLD TODAY-TO A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL GAME I PRAY THAT ALCOHOL THAT TOUCHES THIS PERSON’S LIPS IS BITTER AND DISGUSTING AND A HEART CHANGE OCCURS RIGHT THERE ON THE SPOT – I pray something that I was led to share through Your Word is planted , fertilized and blooms! In Jesus name I lovingly pray for this person~Amen and Amen

“Why does God allow bad things?”

I had this question posed to me and this is what I “heard”:

Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Question:

Why does God get blamed for the evil man commits against another when all He wants for us is peace?

He knows what it’s like to have man commit evil against Him- against His own Son Jesus-so He is compassionate towards those that have been wronged.

I’m struggling to say more than that?

Is there a more fitting scripture I am missing? It’s very difficult for one that is struggling against God for them to understand- OR want to understand- that which is truth and puts God’s goodness against one’s evil and sin… I appreciate anything anyone scripturally would like to add to this ❤️
