"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." (L638).
Today's lesson (Running Over) is all about how you respond when your spouse tells you that he is filing for divorce. Being able to respond and agree enthusiastically is one of the most powerful and freeing attitudes to have during this time. To agree enthusiastically and not resist evil.
Ladies, today I also want to challenge you to start journaling. Each chapter ends with a link giving you the opportunity to journal what He has shown you. To pour your heart out to Him and to encourage others that will come behind you. One very important thing that happens when you journal and really pour out your heart to Him, is that He starts to heal you.
Sometimes from hurts you did not even know you had and that you have hidden so far away. My challenge to you today is to take a course from HopeAtLast or LoveAtLast and journal for just 30 days and come back and let us know by Posting a Praise if it has changed the way you think and if the healing has begun.
Here is what some of our brides have to say about this lesson:
Responding enthusiastically was something I NEVER thought I would be doing when my eh (earthly husband) told me he would be moving forward with the divorce. Yet, with the guidance of RMI and the FD and FD again I was able to be fully prepared and the LORD had also prepared me weeks ahead as He was encouraging me to fast and pray for my marriage. Although I was surprised my prayers were answered that way, it has helped me further LET go and surrender to the LORD's will.

"I can do all things thru him who strengthens me". The more I understand this verse, the more I realize it's about being contented in whatever situations I am in. Knowing that tribulations will never end, it comforts me to know that the Lord is always sustaining me and I need to stay contented no matter what. It's hard to do but I know it's not impossible because "with God, all things are possible".

One of the things I remember about agreeing with everything and not disputing anything in the divorce is that my Heavenly Husband blessed me so much. My eh added so many things to the divorce settlement that he would be paying for, that his lawyer told him to stop or he will have nothing left for himself.
