A Heart For God: Even If My Heart is Breaking to Let Her Go...

Even If My Heart is Breaking to Let Her Go...

It is amazing to see the Lord moving upon your adult children the same way He moved upon you when you first got saved (speaking to, guiding, upholding, calling out of the boat to walk on water, etc).

We are transitioning as a family. My oldest daughter (21) will be transferring in the Fall (by faith) to a University Campus in the Bay Area where I grew up.

I was talking with another friend (mother) whose 18-year old daughter will be moving away to go to school herself. I could see the same concern in her eyes (the mother's) and in her heart that I have for my daughter. (How will they make it? Where will they live? Will they be safe? Will they be able to carry the load of classes?)

The thought came to mind (I believe it was the Lord) and that thought was this: I don't want to be the one to stand in the way of God's plan for my daughter. (Selah~pause to reflect)

I don't want to be the one who, out of fear, wasn't so encouraging (as I could be), wasn't so giving of my full support and effort to help my daughter to reach for her dreams and to take hold of God's hand to experience His faithfulness in her life and discover His plan. (Selah~pause to reflect again)

And I won't be the one to stand in the way (even if my heart is breaking to let her go).

I will soon be facing the same thing, too, most likely with both my boys at the same time. I don't know how I'll make it, except that the Lord will give me His strength when I need it. God bless you and your daughter.

It is hard to be supportive of your adult children when they leave the path God has chosen for them. Non-Christian friends just think you don't want them to grow up.
