May Lose Kids-Not Kidding!

Oooh boy!
Some of you may know about my thread titled "Police At My House!"
Well there was a knock on the door tonight & there was a Police Officer with a Social Worker at the door!!
Seems the Sargent who came to the door today when the 911 call came in felt that the kids were being put at risk & that the oldest didn't know what to do!
I said that Kristin my oldest was nervous.

Anyways to make a long story short, the kids will be visited by a Social Worker soon to check out if things are safe.

A man of God came last Sunday & called out my family & while he said God's hand was on my life, he prayed that I wouldn't lose my soul over going through the things I did/was/going to go through without being specific!

Prayers are definitely needed!

Re: May Lose Kids-Not Kidding!


Hang in there. I am sure when all is said and done the worst you will have suffered is some embarressment. I am sure once they start to investigate they will find out that your family is well cared for and well adjusted.

Sometimes it is hard to understand why we have to go through some things. Especially when they seem to come one right after another or one in the midst of another.

Times like these are when it is good to go back and revisit the story of Joseph in the bible and the "bumps in the road" (LOL) he endured before his dreams came true.
"I think some people love spiritual bondage just the way some people love physical bondage. It makes them feel secure. In the end though it is not healthy for the one who is lost over it or the one who is lives under the oppression even if by their own choice"

Titus2woman on AF

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

Quote from Ethel Goss (widow of 1st UPC Gen Supt. Howard Goss) book "The Winds of God"

We will be praying for your family. God knows the situation and what is needed. Trust Him to lead you and guide you.
Life is .............

I'll get back to you when I figure it out.

Re: May Lose Kids-Not Kidding!

God is bigger than all this!

I did have that concern when you mentioned your daughter was only 11. What's sad is there are families out there that they REALLY need to look into - this was just a one time thing.

Praying that all will work out soon.
