The problem with blaming others for our problems, is against God’s will for us, for each one of us has a free will, and choosing is a gift from God to be used wisely, for the Bible tells us in, (Galatians 5:6 NLT) “For we are each responsible for our own conduct.” This evaluates all our decision making, as our own responsibility, and not blaming others for them when things appear wrong rather than for good outcomes to eventuate.

Default sight causes vision impairment to the things that are really important in our lives, by having a distorted view of matters which could rob us of the true value of life in a purposeful living environment for the better. Life is what you make it – good for yourself – or a state of pitifulness (feeling no pity—sympathy or sorrow for others’ suffering; a state of regret; hard-hearted). We can either move on from difficult situations, or dwell on them with regrets of certain actions affecting our lives. The distorted view would be to think of change as a bad choice, but on the contrary, we must make the most of a bad choice to be a good outcome in the end, for ourselves and others we are responsible for. Nothing can change us, other than praying to Jesus to change our attitude from a negative perspective into a positive one of hope filled perspectives of advancement for the common good of all involved. (Matthew 10:38 NKJV) details this as Jesus taught His disciples to pass on His teaching, “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.” This tells us to take up our cross daily, dying to self, and doing what is necessary, and not whether we feel like doing it or not. Circumstances change all the time, but as long as we keep an open-minded approach that anything is possible, and not be dis-heartened at the thought of giving up what is familiar to us, we can excel to great heights of success and honour in following in Jesus’ steps as He obeyed His Father in heaven, by dying on the cross at Calvary, then rising from the dead on the third day, becoming our Saviour and Mediator, “He is God’s “Yes”; for it is He who is the “Yes” to all of God’s promises. This is why through Jesus Christ our “Amen” is said to the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:20 GNT).
Let’s take Father God’s Word who is Jesus, and petition our request to Him as we are told to do in (Philippians 4:6-7 GNT) “Don’t worry for anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking Him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.”—
”Lord Jesus, I am deeply sorry for any vision impairments in my life which have taken me away from your will, in seeking my pleasures and not considering the suffering of others. I have allowed a hard-hearted approach of negative thoughts, words, and deeds, criticizing, gossiping, complaining, resentment, and bitterness fill me up with regrets, instead of a positive attitude to all things being good from you, for you allowing the changes to take effect in my life as not being good choices for me. I am truly sorry for all my sins on this account, whereby I lost my vision of the good aspects of my life, for the negative attitude in my heart, allowing for a default sight to take place of the corrective lens for the future good you have already prepared and planned for my good and not to harm me, as (Jeremiah 29:11-12 NKJV) declares over my life, “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and go and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”
This then is my petition to you Lord Jesus, to ask for your forgiveness for my default vision to be effectively changed by your corrective lens, to see with open-mindedness your enablement for my future progress in the good things you already have in store for me with thanksgiving and praise, Amen!”

The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.
2. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy!
The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the Plain of Sharon. There the Lord will display His glory, the splendour of our God.
3. With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees.
4. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you.”
5. And when He comes, He will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf.
6. The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy!
Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland.
7. The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land. Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish where desert jackals once lived.
8. And a great road will go through that once deserted land. It will be named the Highway of Holiness. Evil-minded people will never travel on it. It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways; fools will never walk there.
9. Lions will not lurk along its course, nor any other ferocious beasts. There will be no other dangers. Only the redeemed will walk on it.
10. Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.”
“For all who have suffered at the hands of abusers and mockers, you will receive the rewards spoken of in (Isaiah 35) above, as your favour from God for never giving up, and letting go and letting God!”

There is only one way to approach the matter, and that is by prayer alone as is written in (Philippians 4:6 NKJV) “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” So then, let’s put our prayer request to God for that self-willed son or daughter, and let God transform them inwardly, by the renewing of their mind, that they may prove what is that good and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2), as follows:
”Lord Jesus I offer to you my thanksgiving and praises, for the (son/daughter) you have blessed my life with. I come before you now with my thanks for bringing their self-willed character to a close, and bringing them into the true nature and conduct of respect and love of wisdom to hear and obey the voice of God’s authority through their listening to father and mother for their good.
I beseech you Lord Jesus to bring them to know the truth, and the truth will set them free. For I know, believe, trust and receive all your promises of faithfulness in trusting your will for their good outcomes in life as you have declared in (Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV) “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
So be it Lord Jesus to do it, for God is and God will provide for them as is written in your Word of truth the Bible in (Psalm 6:9 NKJV) “The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.” Amen!”

We have all gone through many trials and testing to see our character, but thank God we have remained fixed and stable on the promises of God in (Hebrews 13:5-6) “Let your conduct be without covetousness, and be content with such things as you have. For He himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” This is our position in all circumstances of trouble’s attacks to get us off the course to great expectations, into a downward spiral of hopelessness living, without cause or purpose. We must never forget these kind words of comfort that can enhance us to continue in living as overcomers, with cheerful dispositions on everything, and in every occasion of our lives. This transpires in our lives as a result of trouble trying to inhabit our every nature of conduct, to debilitate, and waste us away into nothingness. But God has made a way possible for all trouble, and tribulation to be removed from our existence, and that of our family’s lives, which would effectively eradicate all traces of the effects trouble and tribulation brings.
This is what Jesus taught us to do, “Come to Me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from Me because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load the Lord will put on you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 GNT). How awesome is that! Easy is the word that pleases us all to hear, so let’s do it now, repent of all the trouble and tribulation has set upon our lives to make living burdensome, to be set free in Jesus’ name for His overcoming ways to take effect in our lives now and for always:

God hates backsliders of faith in His beloved Son Jesus Christ, whom He sent as an offering of His love and compassion, for we were lost in our transgressions without hope, but Jesus came that we might know Him and the Father and the Holy Spirit as never before, and the Scriptures are His gift to us to set us the example for life’s unending parallel of hope, unified to Him the Lord God Almighty.

I am one who waited on the Lord for my prodigal to return. Well 8 years later it happened as He said it would just before the event occurred. But always my mouth has spoken my faith belief that God said, and He would bring them home again. I am so thankful to God Almighty for keeping me always in “waiting to happen prevalence,” because if I had not believed, my prodigal could have been lost forever. I am grateful to have them home safe and sound in God’s will again, to restart anew with God’s plan and not the plan Satan devised to entrap them with no hope, no dignity, and stripped of all “waiting to happen prevalences,” only a mundane lifestyle of same old, same old was offered them, through not waiting on God’s choice for their lifestyle.
Please understand – we can choose our way. But “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it.” (Psalm 127:1 NKJV). The house spoken about here, is one’s plans for their future, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV).
What happens when we go on our own journey of life apart from God’s will is this, we reap what we sow, with hardships, and trials constantly at our feet to stagnate any growth possible. Because of the disobedience, a son, or a daughter, commits against their parents, God cannot honour them with the promise He made to us all in (Deuteronomy 5 GNT), the Ten Commandments in verse 16, “Respect your father and your mother, as I, the Lord your God command you, so that all may go well with you and so that you may live a long time in the land that I am giving you.” This is how God’s building is built – on obedience to Him as well as to our parents.
When a prodigal comes to their senses, and returns home, it can be difficult for them to adjust back into the good living ways, they were accustomed to before leaving home without their parent’s blessing, nor God’s blessing of peace and tranquillity in having God’s plan of perfection. So it becomes a struggle for them to adjust to the simple life without dramas occurring day after day. Jesus said, My peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27 NKJV). This peace Jesus offers is, peace of mind, that all is well again with them – the prodigal, unlike the life previously offered them, of bad choices making hardships a daily routine. So with this in mind, I have been given a prayer through the Holy Spirit, for anybody who has a prodigal, a son or a daughter who has returned home, and desires peace within them, rather than regrets and dis-ease at their choice of coming home, to adjust peacefully into God’s plan and will for their good works, as He pre-planned as in (Jeremiah 29:11 GNT), which is God’ building to start its course to build up again what God originally started, but was halted on account of breaking the 5th Commandment, with disobedience–
”Lord Jesus I bring (my daughter, or my son and their names) before you now, in thanksgiving and praise to your Holy Name, for returning (name) back home to me. Lord Jesus I commit (name) into your hands to conform them in your peace to have your peace always in mind and spirit to bear much fruit in the good works you have already pre-planned for them to walk in.
Dear Jesus I thank you, to bless them with (Jeremiah 29:11) in which, you alone know the plans you have for (name), plans to bring (name) prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future they hope for,” “let not (name’s) heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” according to your Word of (John 14:27), but be of good cheer always in the waiting to happen prevalences that awaits (name) in God’s building up their life strong and at peace with Jesus as Lord of their life in whom they can trust, so be it Lord Jesus to do it, God is, and God will provide!”
