I get frustrated. She posts things so often about her life and thoughts and feelings that are so contradictory to the way she behaves. She gets mad and blocks us. She says don’t judge people, accept them as they are, and most recently “don’t give up on what God calls you to do”. Well, I know God’s called me to do what I can to bring her and her dad, and all of us back together. Because she and her dad are so much alike and think so much alike nothing will ever get done between the two of them at the rate they go…. :/ But it’s hard to not give up because she does all she can to push us away. When all we want is a few hours of her time each year at least. Then more when and if she ever feels ready. All we ask for is a chance to prove to her that we are good people. We aren’t perfect but given the chance we’d never let her down! We’d always be there when she needed us. I think we proved that just because when she was kicked out, hit and put down while she was pregnant and even afterwards, we were there to try and pick up the pieces. Her mom said she didn’t tell her earlier because she wanted her to get to know her dad first. Well, she didn’t even get that chance. Because if she had then she’d be where I am, saying “There’s no way. There had to be a mistake.”
I just wish she could take her own advice when it comes to us. I KNOW these aren’t even about us, but maybe if she put them into context with us she’d understand God does want her to know us!!
Some of the things she has posted that so very much should be used in this situation:
Life is about finding yourself and discovering who God meant you to be.
God will help you overcome wrong motives and intentions if you’ll simply ask and receive help rather than trying to do it on your own.
If you judge people you have no time to love them.
What if I break your trust some day? Trusting you is my decision, proving me wrong is yours.
No one except God can take nothing and make something out of it.
I’ve made mistakes and I always will. I may not be perfect to you or anyone else. But I will always be perfect to and for HIM.
I could never imagine a life like this without a God like that of the universe!
The blessing you’ve waited for is too close to give up now!
Never give up on something you really want. Its hard to wait but worse to regret.
There are no holes in his shoes but a hole in his world.
Don’t stop praying today because that blessing could be here tomorrow.
You can always tell how much you love someone by how much they can hurt you.
I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU’VE DONE. I CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU WILL DO IN THE FUTURE. BE HONEST WITH ME AND I’LL BE HONEST WITH YOU.
It is better to lose your pride for someone you love than lose someone you love for your useless pride.
I promise no matter how hard it gets I’ll work to make this work.
Forget about all the reasons something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.
If you truly want to be with a person, listen to your heart and not all the voices from all the people around you.
Just because you’re not talking to each other, that doesn’t mean you’re both not thinking about each other, and missing each other.
Never lose sight of what means the most to you
It’s amazing what people do for love, and it’s even more amazing what love does to people
What makes something special is not just what you have to gain, but what you feel there is to lose
You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it
Anytime you get ready to confront something in your life, there will always be a lot of “what ifs” that the devil will put in your head.
Love is not a feeling we have; it’s a decision to treat people the way Jesus would treat them
The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to forget is the happiest
I don’t care what I have to go through. You’re so worth it.
No matter what, no matter how, where or who - you can almost always turn around and get a second chance.
Missing someone is a part of loving them

God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and faith, but it’s worth the wait.
You know my name, not my story. You’ve heard what I’ve done, not what I’ve been through. If you were in my shoes, you’d fall the first step
If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t have stuck around this long
(Like I said, I know none of them had anything to do with us. Just makes me sad she can not put two and two together and realize God brought her dad back to her at this time because he knows she’s smart enough and strong enough to decide for herself who he really is. What role God has planed for him in her life. God wanted to wait until she learned what she learned through hard times in her life, and now He wants her to be able to enjoy the love of the dad He’s given her. He knows that when she lets her guard down and is able to experience the love we have for her that it will mold her even more into the person God intends her to be)
