Healing is Beginning

It has been a tough week emotionally and mentally here at Whisper Wind. First I want to say thanks for all my friends/followers that have been praying for our family. I know your prayers are being heard simply because we are feeling them. The Lord is giving us strength and discernment through this troubling time. As the world turns its hatred against the disciples of Jesus Christ, family members also turn against those that are walking in His light. Our attack has come from members of our distant family and their victim was our oldest daughter. Her OCD has reared its ugly head because of all of this. She is heartbroken that someone in her own family, someone that she trusted, would manipulate and use her to seek revenge on the family as a whole. I have faith that God will use this for His glory in the end and that we will heal together. Right now my husband, mother and I are closing ranks so that she is well protected while she learns, grows and heals from this betrayal. Posts might be short and sweet for awhile as we work through this. Again, thank you all for your prayers. I know many times you all have said that I am an encouragement to you and I just want you all to know that you are an encouragement and source of strength for me as well. God bless you all from the bottom of my heart!

Keeping you and your sweet daughter in our prayers sweetie, yes satan is real and like a roaring lion, trying to destroy and attack the Lord's army, but I know the end of the book, amen we win...

Isn't it crazy that family are the ones that seem to hurt each other the most? I'm sorry your family is going through this and pray that the lesson learned will come quickly!

HUGS for your Dd. The hurts that hurt and wound the deepest are those wounds inflicted by someone closest to you. Praying the Lord will comfort her hurting heart and give you and your Dh,and your Mom discernment in how to handle future dealing with this family member.

Oh so sad when that happens. I've dealt w/that from a certain cousin all my life. She's sent many-a lie down the family food chain: my daddy was an alcoholic (SO FAR from least I know that she was confronted by another relative about his one), I've had 3-4 abortions so that's why our 1st daughter died of SIDS & I had 2 miscarriages, I moved out of my parents' home when I was 21 b/c we had a huge fight & they kicked me out (the only arguing we did was that they DIDN'T want me to leave!). Sinceless & shameful. There's just no reason for it, but it happens. I'm sorry for what you are going through.
