In the book Setting Boundaries For Adult Children the author mentions the book Now I Lay My Isaac Down. The book is about accepting God's will when tragedies strike. I lived in Orlando when the murder happened and I remember it being in the news. It was puzzling how a Christian man that had accomplished so much could think that murdering a man was the only way out of a situation. He was extremely lucky he did not get the chair, and at 25yo he is to spend his entire life in prison with no parole. I thought I had learned to 'let go and let God' but I guess not, my latest with my difficult child set me back and I am going through the process again. Carol Kent (the mother) was and still is a Christian speaker and she writes lessons about God testing Abraham's faith and has soul searching questions at the end of each chapter. From her Web site: Gene and I have discovered that when God seems the most absent, He is the most present. Each person's 'Isaac experience' will look different, but the challenge is for us to do what Abraham did. We need to relinquish the person, event, or situation to our God who sees the end from the beginning and trust that everything that happens to us can be a platform upon which we proclaim to the world that His is still good and He is still trustworthy. The book has helped me so much to detach and let my 33yo learn his lessons God has planned for him. I never criticize anyones beliefs, and I have 2 friends that believe they are atheist, so if you are not a Believer you probably will not enjoy the book.
