Dear Brides!!! Here I am again to Praise my HH for not only what He is doing in my life, but for Who He is. I think that 3 weeks ago when moving to my in-law’s house, I had a discussion with my FH, and he said so many hurtful things to me that made me feel guilty and ashamed, but that was the lies of the enemy. For days I was not having any contact with him, and I was asking the Lord to help me forgive, to love the unlovable, to not think about the hurt.
On Sunday I was spending my time with Him, and the lesson of the day was the chapter six of the Abundant life courses that say: They Don’t Have It. And doing the lesson I could understand how difficult is when we don´t have the Lord in our life, and heart. And I prayed that the Lord could fill the heart, and life of my FH and some family members, that one day they might also meet this Wonderful God. I felt hurt because they don´t have what I have.
On Monday I received some papers from my Embassy, telling me that I need to fill in some papers to legalize my divorce in my country, and I needed the signature of my FH in the papers. I confess that I was afraid to ask anything from him, I prayed and told my HH that I was His bride, and the fear was not from Him. I sent my FH the message and immediately received an answer that he would take care of it. I was so happy, so full of peace because my HH was with me and dealing with all my problems.
The next day in the morning, I start to receive some text messages from my FH, and I couldn´t believe that he was saying he was sorry for all the things that he did to me, and for some hurtful things that he told me. Brides this is the Hand of our Beloved Husband. To tell you the truth I even don´t remember most of the hurtful things that he told me because my HH is making me forget all the past things. I don´t remember now how many times he offered me money and help, but I told him that I didn´t need it, that I was fine. And it is the truth, my HH is providing for all my needs, I don´t have much, but I am truly happy because it comes from Him. My FH could not understand why I didn´t want his money, but that is because he doesn’t have it. But I pray that one day he will have. I praised my Lord because He is working not only in my life, and my FH was a prideful man, and never said sorry to people. And I can see that his heart is in the hand of the Lord and He’s turning it. Dear Brides, let go of the anger, hurt, and unforgiveness, if you have difficulty, ask our HH, with Him everything is possible.
*“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?” Mathew 5:44-46
“Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.” Psalm 9:6
“In the LORD’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.” Proverbs 21:1
“Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.” Psalm 37:8
Let go of the negative feelings you can feel for those who hurt you, and pray for them, and see the Lord work miracles in your life.

Do you want to PRAISE Him for how He’s done the impossible, like having your EH or FH tell you he’s sorry? Aren’t you thankful that Sara not only took the time to share her PRAISE with you an Encouraging Woman but that she’s got the kind of relationship with her HH to encourage you to have the same?
Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
Be sure to submit a Praise Report today and enter through that narrow gate few ever find!
