Peace and comfort

by Khristi ()

I am in desperate need of prayers this morning. My husband and I had our house broken into a few weeks back and some football cards that my husband has been collecting for years were taken. A few days after the report was made my husband was on eBay looking at cards and saw a listing from a card shop that was his card I had no idea that cards have serial numbers on them but they do and my husband had proof that it was his among about 2,000 worth of cards. The person that took them and sold them turned out to be my nephew. To say that I’m heartbroken is beyond words. I helped raise him. Anyway bc my husband and I decided that we were going to press charges on him, I’m taking all kinds of pressure and grief from my mother who has defended him his entire life. He even pawned 2 of her rings that my dad had given her and she is going to pay the pawn shop and get them back but doesn’t want to press charges. I feel that my nephew has a drug problem and he is getting more desperate every day. My mother and sister’s are making me feel like I’m a horrible person and I don’t feel like I’ve done anything wrong. I feel like he has got to face the consequences for his actions. I don’t see that I’m doing anything wrong yet I’m the one crying and trying to get some peace. My mother is very much a narcotic person and she can make me feel like I am terrible. Then she puts things like your not his judge and you and your husband have made mistakes. My husband did a year in jail and bc of that he ended up accepting full responsibility for his actions and turned his life around. However his past mistakes have been thrown up to him. I need God to show me what to do. I am a Christian and I want to make it to heaven. I don’t if I’m just supposed to forgive him and forget about it or stop him from hurting himself or someone else. If he continues to do things like this he.might kill someone or someone could hurt or kill him. If anyone sees the post please respond and let me know what you think.
