The past year has not been easy for my family and I. In the summer my mother and I came to God after a very long time away, my Mother had been diagnosed with a tumour on her brain which was effecting her eye sight. I went as moral support and soon we began attending regularly.
The winter came and my Step – Father was diagnosed with acute pancreatic cysts. Eventually these worsened and he was regularly in hospital leaving him forced to look at his behaviour with alcoholic drinks. Things soon settled and because I wasn’t working at the time it enabled me to support my family.
Go forward almost a year and my Mother is now in hospital with a numbness in her legs. She has been in for two weeks and my Step – Father has turned to drink again. This weekend things came to a head when instead of going food shopping he bought a palette of beer. I then learnt he promised my Mother he would not drink so she could focus on getting better in hospital than worry what would happen to my Brother and I should my Step – Father then fall Ill.
This resulted in a huge fight between my Step – Father and I . How could he be so selfish and lie to my Mother, verbally attack me for telling the truth and try and leave me with the sole responsibility for the family when I am now working to support my future family with my Fianc !
No one is talking to one and another, The atmosphere is tense and I am close to running myself Into the ground, I cant cope.
Please pray .. I don’t know what for really, maybe that God could speak to my Step – Father, that God could forgive any sins we have committed and that he could come to us and be a constant sense of support that I so desperately need right now. We all desperately need healing.
