Thank you for your daily encouragement! Please pray for my grandsons who are living with my daughter who is a legal drug addict. The neglect and emotional abuse has gone to far. We are praying for the Lord to direct us on how to rescue them, and get her into a rehab. Road blocks we have had them for the last two years in waiting and praying for the Lord’s direction in this matter. Road blocks, thank you for this podcast.
God Bless you and all you do for us, in Jesus Name

That was a lovely message, and it is well said, thank you! Sometimes we get into situations that we think are from thy Lord but is not! I know the truth in my heart but I am praying for all things to change, and yes sometimes I feel like giving up but I know that thy Lord would not approve of me doing such a thing. Pray for us all to get it right! Some need Jesus and keep fighting, and I am not tired of waiting but there is a point, a time, and a season. Drugs is not the answer nor is drinking. May thy Lord keep you blessed to send out the message by the grace, and in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Humm Road Block its like running into a brick wall at full speed… How much can a body take ??? After awhile the body starts to wear….. Ya get so strong then its like what happened to the inner strength? Where did it go, I’m sippost to be strong…I don’t question that this was going to happen weather I was in the picture or not …But I do question myself …. Never been in this place before ,,, so I gather from this I am to learn and grow become something more than I ever dreamed I could be 🙂 that is what I hold on to …its all faith that knowing God will make that path cause right now I’m blinded by numbness and really don’t see the path?
I enjoy your post they make me think, and it make’s me look at my true self without being crusified, I like that !!!!

Rebecca – You’ve got that right! That darn road block is more like an invisible brick wall that hasn’t any give. Start feeling battered and bruised after a bit. Every idea I’ve had hit road blocks for almost 2 years now. I’ve tried everything I could think of (my situation is lack of purpose/job). On that last road block – I swear it almost gave me a black eye! lol.. just when I think something is right! Yet, I’ve had this idea to go back to school again for over a year now, but I’ve been fighting against it and been avoiding the entire idea. I kept praying and praying, begging for direction, yet I wonder, was He giving me the answer all this time? Is this why I couldn’t seem to get anywhere with my life? Is this why I’ve felt so stuck? To me at the time – school just wasn’t an option – because I just didn’t want to do it. Well – since then, I’ve learned to trust in Him. Amazingly, so far, no road blocks. If it is His will, all will go smoothly with minor speed bumps. ;o)
Meanwhile – I’ll also pray for you. Pray that God clears your mind, seek peace, do not worry for He is there for you. He will provide you with what you need. He will send you the people you need and tell you in a soft voice what path you are to take. You are God’s child. Your inner strength is only as strong as your faith in God – for He IS your strength. You can weather any storm.
As for being crucified! Oh that makes me sad! I pray, that you will believe when you look at your true self every hour of everyday, know this; You are perfect in God’s eyes. No one else’s opinions matter except your own and God’s. Do not care what they think as long as you do what is right and just. Walk with God with your head up, knowing that no matter what background ANYONE has, you are His child and He loves you. Thats all that matters. (And if you ever look back on past mistakes, learn – but you’ll laugh too – you’ll see God has a sense of humor). Sometimes I feel like God pulled one heck of a prank on me.

I am learning to listen to my heart for direction as I feel that my heart is GOD’s communication link. Sometimes it is difficult to ascertain which way GOD wants you to go, and I am also learning to wait for an answer which is difficult at times. When the answer comes, and it always does, I am amazed at the calm that comes over me, and I think to myself, why did I doubt. The accumulation of instances where GOD is directing me is mounting so that I can be supported by them in GOD’s love for me. Thank you for your daily encouragement and support. I look forward to reading you daily thoughts. You are a blessing to me and to many. Have a GOD-filled day.

Hello everyone, I was invited to this site by a good friend. I was hesitant to check it out as I am a lost soul right now. But as you can see I am here. So glad I am. I believe it was God’s work
that sent me here. That message was so enlitening i need a lift
in life right now and I hope this sight gives me that lift I need. Thank you Elmer Laydon for you inspiratiion. I have many things in my life that happened all at once, and I know I have not dealt with them through God. I know all my relatives and friends love me, that is why they give me the third degree when I need it. It really hit home this time. I am slowly slipping back to my old ways and don’t like myself for that. I really need some sort of help. Thank You again my Good friend for inviting me to this sight.

I have had so many roadblocks with my daughter that I can’t keep track of them. My only salvation has been prayer. She is a recovering drug addict and is trying to get her ducks in a row and has been able to up to a point. It seems like every time my husband and I plan something for us then she will call and although I know she does not mean to she puts a damper on it. When do you know what is God’s will and what is ours? We are ready to go on vacation today and she drops another bomb. I am sick to my stomach from worry, and I know God does not want us to worry, He will do the worring for us. I also appreciate the messages from Elmer Laydon that gives us the inspiration we all need. Please pray for my daughter, Tiffany.

The messages i have read are deep. In every family there is someone that is addicted, not living right, neglectful, and many more issues. However, god has allowed us to see what the world has to offer good or bad. As individuals we choose our path. Many go astray from gods path for whatever reason. God is showing us what life has and can offer us depending on the path we walk. It is our duty to take our loved ones by the hand and show them what they are missing. Not all will accept the offer but it is worth a try. Road blocks are a diversion to stray. We are our own worst enemies. Rise above those obstacles and god will lead you and your loved ones to salvation. Remember he is the source to better days. We are to be concerned but not to worry he has our back. God bless you all and rest assured there are better days to come.

For every parent fighting the drug war with your children, don’t give up. Also use tough love. when you say you are going to do something, follow through with it. Two of my daughters are fighting the drug war. They both appeared to be doing well and now i think the one is back at it. I pray not and yet i think i’m lying to myself. I have made it very clear that their will be no more moving back home so we can support them while they use us and won’t take responsability for themselves.I have spent many days and nights asking God to guide me and i truly believe he wants me to make them take responsability for their actions. I love all of my children with all of my heart and that won’t change. Please don’t make idol threats, follow through with them. Your children will learn to respect you more. I am so glad i found this sight. May God bless all of you.

i truly believe there are people out there that you thought were your friends were really waiting for you to do something/say something so they could pounce, however i did set myself up for this, but actually this (although it hurt) has made me stronger. I can forgive i only wish i can forget.

over the course of several months, i’ve put money into a business with the assurance that i’d be paid back in the summer. now that i need the money, i’m being told the business owner can’t pay me back. May God bless me with the right way to deal with this situation and give me direction in my life.

Even though we face numerous road blocks, God doesn’t. Our road blocks to me are reminders that I need to make adjustments – instead of, worrying, fretting, embarrassing, delaying, tempting, manipulating – I choose to give these issues to God and watch Him take care of them. I honor goodness, love and mercy because I know where they come from. The road blocks most of the time for me are the ones I place in the road I’m traveling. When I don’t, my life is much simpler and wonderful. God is my Leader, Supplier, Counselor, Savior and Lord!
