FDA “Running Over”

"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".

~Gioia in USA

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.

  1. What is most amazing is this SAME principle “agree ENTHUSIASTICALLY” to any threat will give you the same results. FREEDOM from FEAR and your Husband the Lord of Hosts (the ultimate warrior) will battle for you.
    I was shocked and a bit dismayed when I realized so few ministers had journaled this powerful course and I’m thrilled to see that more are taking it.
    Only a few days ago my Husband reminded me of my University days and how many courses I was taking AT THE SAME TIME. In California State Universities (at the time I’ve no idea now) with permission based on high marks you could petition to take more courses and not pay more (just pay for the books). At the time I was also working because I was supporting myself while putting myself through school (my parents were older and had retired). No loans no grants or scholarships. I always wondered WHY I did that and why HLM to leave just one class shy of my degree to get certified doing what I was passionate about and 20 years later let go of to focus on Ministry only.
    It was so I could encourage each of you to take your spiritual education as serious as your academic education MORE SERIOUSLY since the gains and consequences of are more dire—not only for our sake but for our families and friends sake.
    When many came here broken without anyone to chat about it women were devouring everything as quickly as they could. Their growth and healing ❤️‍🩹 was miraculous and I’m hoping that we can have both and it’s not necessary for Him to remove Lover and Friends to recreate our hungry hearts 💕

    1. I agree Erin. When I read your comment, He brought a verse to mind:
      “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.’”
      What better way to love Him with our mind, than to learn what His word tell us as women on how to live as well as teach and encourage others in the same way.

  2. Thank for sharing dear Yvonne, you put it so beautiful, that with the journaling our Darling Lord starts to heal us and I see my Darling is healing areas in my life that I didn’t even think needs healing. And I can add on this when my earthly husband left me the first time and wanted to divorce, I begged and didn’t let go and today I know that is why he just ran more into the OW’s arms and it just made everything worse.

    And I must must just add, last year I made the remark that I am too old to learn (yes can you believe that), but I just love my Darling, because He for sure showed me I am really not too old to learn. With every course I am learning something and with the journaling my Darling is bring healing and with so many things I say I wish I had learned this much earlier in my life. I also always added but I am so busy, but I see now there is some time somewhere to do it and I also see I wasted so much time on worthless things.

  3. Love, love and love!! Journalling does change lives and gives us the opportunity to sow what we have learned to others! When I read my old journals I just love to see how my mind has been renewed! I will accept this change and start journaling the courses I haven´t yet done!! This is really exciting!

  4. Journalling made all the difference on my journey and in my healing process. Since we learn here to take everything to the Lord (https://loveatlast.org/ryr/c6/) journalling taught me to not only have a safe place to pour out my heart discreetly, but it taught me how to Seek God about what I read and what He wanted to show me. It taught me how healing it can be to just pour your heart out to the Lord and to go back and read what you’ve written.

  5. Thank you for sharing Yvonne! I remember at the end of one of the courses (I believe it’s Securing Your Success) I started tithing and really trusting the Lord to deliver what He has promised. The thing is thru journaling, we are slowly building our faith and trust in HH and letting His words sinking in and transforming me (“but his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:2). I also recall at the time when I was just so desperate to learn the truth that it kept me going. And I am glad that I have to come to the place where I can say “loving thy words”.
