Someone that is very dear to me is facing a lot of time in prison due to drug addiction stemming from learned behaviors, childhood trauma, and a lack of the right recovery resources. There is nothing we can do about that at this point as far as the conviction, but please pray that the sentencing goes as well as it possibly can. Prayers for peace for them. Peace for our family. Prayers that in spite of this situation God can use them. He already has used them to lead bible studies and help others find Christ. Tonight I am also praying for other families living this nightmare and others like my love one who need true recovery and God. Praying for our community to embrace God and love in a big way and realize that we all sin and Jesus loves us all. Praying that I can casts my own predispositions aside to help people. My family already lost a loved one who passed away due to drug over dose. Now it feels like we are loosing another one.
