Really struggling with Missy. It's all very negative so there's nothing to write, but am growing weary of the battle.

Lifting you up to The Lord. I do so understand weariness.

Thank you for the prayers!! I need it. She needs it. I tend to block her out and I am asking the Lord to help me to love and not just tolerate.

Is her behaviour negatively affecting the rest of the family too? Or right now is everything else that little heaven that EGW talks about? is everyone else also growing weary? Is there any way forward or it's grin and bear it forever? Wish prayer wasn't the only thing I can offer... So sorry things are so hard.

I am sorry to hear that it is similar at your house, Dawn!

Interesting questions. We try cry hard not to allow it to effect the whole family... And we are better at deflecting the drama rather than internalizing it. We try to keep focused elsewhere. However, if a child decides to scream for 8 hours straight its hard not to start to feel a little crazy after awhile.

Don't know where the word, cry came from... 🤔😉😍

Prayer is what we need more than anything, but sometimes it would be nice to be able to pick up the phone and call someone and say I need you to pray right now...

I'm praying for you! I understand the weariness quite well with having a 15 yr old daughter whose struggles are very similar to Missy's. May God give you grace, strength and peace! Barb
