Not Catastrophic; HOW FREEING it Was!

I have a Praise about my Marriage Relationship. In previous PRs, I have shared about how hard my EH´s return has been and about how my HH has held me completely during this season after being restored because I basically have felt trial after trial in this area lately.

If I can be honest dear ladies, I should feel very shocked about my love feelings for my EH after so many things and after his desire to leave again, but I understand it is Him who permits my heart to continue “loving the unlovable” and I know that this is part of our RJ and through His refinement we´ll be able to testify about His love soon.

What was amazing is my EH told me that the only reason he didn´t leave again was that he knew that I would look for him as I did in the past, and call him or text as before. I thought that I had let go of him completely and that my Heavenly Love was so much in my heart that my EH didn´t have reasons to feel this way. I just listened and asked Him to give me the words because I knew this came from the enemy and I understood that he was using my EH to make me feel that He hasn´t changed me completely or that if he left again I definitely would be going back to my old ways.

Immediately I opened my mouth and I said to him: “You know that you are free to go anytime you want. I´m sorry if I gave you the impression that I was holding on to you, I truly LET GO OF YOU and respect your decision about leaving if that is what you think you should do.”

I can´t explain HOW FREEING this was!!! A situation that would have been catastrophic for me in the past was a blessing after all.

Only HE can do this ladies!!!! I didn´t fall for the enemy’s trick, if I had changed by myself, maybe this was something temporary, but my HH was the One who made the changes in me and still does every day.

Also, our EHs are not the enemy, as Erin says in the Wise Woman book, sadly though, the enemy uses them sometimes to hurt us, but when we have a Super Husband like the one we have, we should never be afraid or feel abandoned at all. He wants us to “strive for full restoration” and He wants us to trust Him He will do it, but even if He didn´t, we are already the most blessed women for having such a great Husband with us!

The Lord revealed to me later that in my case, I needed to say that I LET GO OF my EH out loud, because I needed to hear this myself, with my own voice!!

Oh my dear Lord, how many times I have desired to do this and now You do it so easily and so suddenly!! How great and awesome are Your ways, extremely higher than mine!!!

Our HH has a special way to show us the path and to reveal Himself to us ladies. Erin is very right when she talks about the seasons in our RJ and about how each one of us has a different but beautiful path to walk through. Let´s enjoy each one of the situations He permits by holding our Beloved hands!

Do you want to PRAISE Him for how He’s shown you how you can continue loving the unlovable? Aren’t you thankful that Sara shared this with you an Encouraging Woman?

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.”
