Cindy - living through the wreckage of my past

After 5 years of being living 1200 miles from my daughter - how do I go back?

I left my daughter with her dad 5 years ago - due to my violent 2nd husband. I divorced him and moved far away. I have been a long distance mom, healing myself and keeping us safe. She will be 18 and I feel the stong need to go home. Where do I start? My heart aches. I left a 13 year old who is now ready to be on her own? I want to be closer but I am still afraid of the same reasons I left. Please pray for my daughter and I...where do I begin?

May the healing power of God's love fill the hearts of Cindy and her daughter--through God, all things are possible. "Trust the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto thy own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all thy ways and He will guide thy path."

Dear Lord, provide this woman with your strength and show her that a girl's mother is ALWAYS her mother, no matter what may happen in life. I'm sure this girl is getting to the age where Mom is needed (even though it may take 20 more years for to admit it). Provide them the relationship that you want for them and which will glorify you. In Jesus's name we pray. Amen.

I ask that god provide his child Cindy with the strength she will need to open her heart to her child and work to heal this relationship. I pray that Cindy will also forgive herself for any "mistakes" she thinks she made. She was only trying to survive. Blessings, dear sister in Christ!

I to had to leave a violent relationship and my two girls. I know the pain of leaving a child behind. Please dont beat yourself up for your past, it will only hinder your future. You did what you needed to at the time to survive as I did. I will pray for healing in your heart. Remember jesus loves you no matter what you think you have done. You are a child of god and he loves you so much. try to keep your faith.

Lay it at the cross. You're not doing this yourself, you can't. Believe you are loved by Him, you are His daughter and you love your daughter. He knows how much He loves you and that you love your daughter as much as is humanly possible. Remember He loves you and your daughter wherever you are and in every minute. Your faith and the light in your eyes and voice will bring glory to Him in your talk with your daughter. Be in the present with your talk with your daughter. A few words at the right time can be simply needed to heal. Believe and wait on Him for wisdom for those few words and with the right heart. It's not about you and what you did. Every minute right now and for every minute we have show your love, like He loves you every minute. Your pain will be fleeting when you look back years from now. A 1000 years will be a second in heaven.
Live now like you are preparing for eternity. All is in His power. Peace to you and I pray you receive and believe in how much you are loved. When we get to heaven, it won't be how much we are loved, it will be how we loved others. Love you, your girls and bring glory to Him, he knows all. He's working in you as is shown in your request for our prayers.

Peace to you, He will show you His way in his time.

Trust in the Lord
