Letting go

by veronica ()

I am a 53 year old mother of three daughters and I am being tested by one of them. She is 36 years old and the eldest of the three and she is an alcoholic, depressed, suicidal and married to a man who tried to choke her to death. Her husband is now in prison for his domestic violence. It has been four years that she has been in and out of the hospital for detox and suicidal attempts. I have been there for her and have tried to tell her to turn to the Lord but she claims that he doesn’t care about her. She recently went through some disciplinary actions with her employer and is on the verge of getting her license revoked. I try to talk with her but she shuts me out and tells me that I do not understand what she is going through. I told that I do not but I have been there for her through it all. My parents tell me just to let her hit rock bottom and deal with it on her own. She does not respect me and my advice. I would like a prayer to help me seek an answer from Our Lord God as to what I should do. I feel like I can not just throw her out into the street and tell her good bye and good luck. My heart aches for her and I do not know what I should do, 🙁
