Embrace and Enjoy This Time

♕ Today's Promise: "My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.

Just after I submitted my Praise Report telling you all how I am enjoying my life with homeschooling for Him and Living the Abundant Life. The enemy tried to come in and steal my peace.

My children should have come home, but my FH sent me a message saying that both kids wanted to stay longer and he will see if he can bring them back the next weekend. I did not want to answer him and I first went to my Heavenly Husband and spoke to Him and allowed Him to speak back to me.

Of course they have stayed longer for school holidays in the past, but I always knew they had to come back for school. Now, with schools closed indefinitely I do not have that reassurance, I only have Him and isn’t this exactly where He wants me? The conversation between us went something like this:

Going to Him the first message I got was that I needed to remember: the children are not mine, nor my FH, they are His! 2 Corinthians 6:18 (NASB) “And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” aays the Lord Almighty.

I am their primary caregiver and we have a visitation schedule, so I have the law to fall back on and demand that the children come home. And He said: Matthew 5:39 “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.”

Lord, would the OW allow this to happen to her son? Why is she doing it to me? And He said: Proverbs 30:20 "This is the way of an adulterous woman: She eats and wipes her mouth, and says, “I have done no wrong.”"

And my FH? Does he not understand how I must feel? Just then my phone rang and yes, it was my FH saying he does not have much time to speak to me but he just wanted to make sure I am okay with the message he sent me? Yes, I am okay, they can stay.

As I am writing this Praise Report, I have no idea when my children will return home, but I do know that He will be there every second with me and He will also be there with them. His love will be the link that binds us together even though we are apart.

I will embrace and enjoy this time with Him how ever long He decides it should be and I will not involve myself in His perfect plan for my life. When I miss my children, I will cry on His shoulder and He will be my stronghold during this time.

Psalm 62:5-8 (TPT) "I am standing in absolute stillness, silent before the one I love, waiting as long as it takes for him to rescue me. Only God is my Savior, and he will not fail me. For he alone is my safe place. His wrap-around presence always protects me as my champion defender. There’s no risk of failure with God! So why would I let worry paralyze me, even when troubles multiply around me? God’s glory is all around me! His wrap-around presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength. Join me, everyone! Trust only in God every moment! Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him. Believe me when I tell you—he will help you! Pause in his presence."
