Family Relations Are Broken
My relationships with family are broken. Life threats, division, hostility, jealousy, rage, anger just keeps getting worse. As much as I want to be in realtionship it has affected my health. I live in fear, and uncertainty, uncomfortable most of the time. I need prayer for direction. Judy

Romans 8:28,"God causes all things to work out for good." In your situation, the Lord will work out everything for your good.I take it that you are a Christian. Can you forgive your family for whatever they have done to you? "Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sins against us."God is for you. You can do all tings through Christ who gives you strength. Do you believe that God really loves you? If He didn't, He would not have placed Jesus Christ on the cross to die for you.

My heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus give this lady comfort, strength, stability. In Jesus name Amen. >>>Please do not allow your family to do this to you. If you are saved and they are not, your family is the one with serious problems. Let God teach you have to be a forgiver. All will go well for you, I promise.

Judy I asked a question on this blog about this same problem a few day ago. I have not seen the question posted,yet. But my heart goes out to you and your family. The devil has done much damage to the family structure. Dysfunctional families are the norm now.Mine included. You are not alone. But please do not let it effect your health,love. Do all you can to heal yourself,first. Reach out to your family in love and that's all you can do.Sometimes we have to leave certain family members alone.

Judy, I Don't know your exact situation, but I can pray for you and your family. I also pray that the Lord protects you. He is a very present help in times of need, for those who are in Christ. Read Psalm 91. God bless you, and keep you.

Dear Judy, I am going through s similar situation. I encourage you to pray for them. God is truly in control. Our trials help us to grow in our walks with our Lord. He is our strength and our warrior. Keep in the Word and seek God for His plan for you in this matter. Praying for you,Diane

Get away from it. Give yourself time to heal. Limit your time with them as much as possible. Do pray for them, and trust God for His help. If you are hurting and in fear, you can not be very much good to help them like this right now. You need to heal and be fear from fear. Grow in your faith towards God, look forward not back. I pray for your healing.

you should insist that all involved go with you to counseling. it is better to get help than to need it year after year. if they won't go, then go by yourself. i will pray for you.

Judy, I understand what you are going through. A few years ago my family was in such turmoil. Fighting, bitterness and just plain sinful behavior ruled.I was so stressed knowing the truth, yet helpless to change the behavior of others.I seemed to always get dragged in the middle.I prayed for months that the Lord would intervene and he did! He confirmed that I needed separate myself from my family and pray dilliently for them! God even gave me a new job and moved me states away Within the next year, God resolved the issues without my help! He knew what was needed! Listen and rest in His plan.

Judy, why do you remain in such a sin filled environment? You are not earning any points with God by staying there.

I'm sure many will pray for you. I'm uncertain about my near future here on earth, but pray that you have no fear of where you will spend eternity! Are you still living with any of your family or out on your own? I'll also pray that the effects on your health are reversible; I've had some anxiety attacks of my own and hope that's the kind of effects you refer to. Is there a sister in the LORD nearby you can talk to about this?
