♕ Today's Promise: “For the LORD has called you, Like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, Even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected,’ Says your God… For your Husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.’” Isaiah 54: 5–6

What excites me about this chapter [What Is the Abundant Life?] is how I need to draw closer and closer to Christ. To truly know that I only need HIM, want HIM. And when I have HIM I have everything.

This reminds me of the times when I started the free courses, how connected and in love I was with Him and how He filled my heart with joy and protection from pain and hurt that was coming my way.

I loved how this chapter brought this home with a different perspective.

Just reading this chapter the Lord has spoken to me to remember that only HE matters, HE is mine and I am HIS. That with just HIM, the two of us I am loved, secure and in faithful hands. I don’t need any other assurances from anyone besides HIM.

Recently, I received a text from the other woman who has a child with my husband telling me my husband told her, we want full custody of the child. This message really threw me back into a state of sadness reminding me of the infidelity that my EH (earthly husband) has subjected me to. I went spiralling to ground zero and asking myself all sorts of questions.

I have asked the Lord to direct me as what to do or say to my husband who has never wanted to talk anything about his infidelity nor commit to faithfulness in the future. I realised how this has been the number one thing that can easily break the marriage. But today the Lord has shown me once more that it’s only HIM whom I need to be loved by and that HE is faithful and in HIM I have everything.

My EH (earthly husband) has said nothing to me, I told him nothing of such message, but I told her my concern about lack of commitment to the marriage as God intended it to. Yes I was hurt and I am in pain about all this, and have been for a long time in my marriage. The Lord once more is asking me to give it over to HIM and only look upon HIM to give me that which He has in store for me joy, peace, love and faithfulness.

I will definitely be quoting the words that All I need is you, all I want is you, in you I have everything I need day and night. I do need this right now as I am a little bit shaky and highly emotional.

The Lord loves us and HE is there even when we don’t think HE is. We just need to connect with HIM and be in fellowship and build intimacy with HIM all the time.

At HIS feet we must dwell...

I am in a phase that is uncharted and at every turn I don’t know what awaits me, but HIM I trust and I give myself fully.

“For the LORD has called you, Like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, Even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected,’ Says your God… For your Husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.’” Isaiah 54:5-6
