Eliza Koch
forced into a life not wanted

I have been bucking my parents rules for as long as I can remember, I cut my hair shorter than most women wear their hair, and I became a vegetarian. But it has back fired.

I am in a rut. Because I am not Mennonite and have run out of time to go back to that church, on my 18th birthday I will be married to a man of which I was forced. To top that off, I have gastritis and ulcers in my stomach. My life is going to end in about a year, and my health is failing. I've already had cancer 3 times, and I don't want to make a 4.

Lord, I pray right now for this situation. I believe that it is not Eliza's intent to speak death to herself, and I believe that You are a healer! Lord, please minister to Eliza, let her know that all is not as bad as it seems, that You are available to her to heal and make her whole, that rebellion is not the answer but directly addressing problems. Amen.

I have no knowledge of the Mennonite church, but I do know that no one can be forced to marry! This was almost 2 years ago posted--I pray that all is well now!
