Schaun your story really touched my heart and I am sure that it also touches the heart of God. I too lost a brother that I loved very much to drug abuse. My father and I prayed desperately for him for years, but with no avail. When my brother died, I wondered why our years of heartfelt prays were not answered. There are some tragedies in life that only God understands. These tragedies can leave us broken and skeptical about the love of God. I have also been blessed and privilege to witness answers to prayers. I have experienced God’s provision and protection during difficult times. I don’t know why God chooses to answer some prayers immediately and some later. I don’t know why God answer is yes, no, or wait to some prayers. Our finite mind cannot comprehend the mind of the infinite God. I am reminded of this scripture…
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12 KJV
Schaun I stand with you in a believing prayer of faith for your son. It’s not over until God says it’s over. When we think all is lost and we are at the end ourselves that is when God sometimes chooses to act. I pray that God in his mercy will hear the cry’s of your heart like He heard the cry’s of Hannah and restore your son and family in Jesus mighty name, Amen!
Your Brother In Christ
