♕ Today's Promise: "Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name." Psalm 86:11
This is my first Praise report here and I am very excited. When I begun my restoration journey, I did not submit any praise reports here but instead bought a notebook where I have written several of them. I have come to realize that I am being mean by not sharing here because I would love to encourage other women here.
I have been separated from my earthly husband for one year and 9 months now when he left me. It was very devastating to me since we had just been married for about two weeks so I was desperate for help. After one year of walking a desperate journey and trying to find solutions my way, I browsed the internet for any hope of restoration and I thank my Heavenly Husband for directing me to this wonderful ministry.
I am currently taking course 2, Rebuild and long to live the abundant life. I have tried to practice all the restoration principles but Letting go has been the hardest. I was always tempted to re-read old chats from my earthly husband but this only added to my pain. Until this week, I have held onto my earthly husband but after reading a praise report from Beta in Florida, I decided to delete his contacts from my phone. I have prayed and begged God before to erase the obsessive thoughts about my earthly husband but this hasn't been possible until I deleted his contacts this week.
God loves me and He has promised to restore my health and finances before my marriage and am fully trusting him because He's a promise Keeper. My finances have also been tested but I thank my Beloved for He always makes a way for me everyday. He has also blessed me with angels in the form of my colleagues at work who have helped me in several ways to keep my business afloat. It's only my love my God who has done that.
When the covid 19 country lock down begun, I had little money left to barely take me through one week at home but my Heavenly Husband provided for all my needs for the two months the country was locked. I never lacked anything and I have my Beloved to thank for His love and Mercy upon me. The lock down is currently slowly being eased and I am one of the few business people that have been allowed to work and I know that this is God's favor for me.
I once again thank my Beloved for directing me to RMI. The daily Encouragement, videos, praise reports and the book of How God can and will restore your marriage have helped me a lot to restore my faith in God. Every morning I wake up looking forward to reading emails from the encourager.
I want to thank God once again because for the first time in the 21 months ever since my earthly husband left, I am beginning to feel the peace that I have been longing for in my heart. I long to live the Abundant life that I always read from the brides here. I continue to pray to completely let go of my earthly husband and live with my Beloved Lord. He's all I need and He's all I want to be with and have an intimate relationship with. I no longer want to think about my marriage but rather spend time with my Beloved and I know that this will happen one day because there's nothing impossible for God.
Psalm 86 (KJV) A prayer of David. Hear me, Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me. Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
