I want to give thanks to God for the life and ministry of each partner of RMI that through the Lord has favored me in this course Finding the Abundant Life where I am learning to be the bride of my Beloved and to have an abundant life. There were days of much learning and ever greater communion with the Beloved of my soul. The pain no longer hurts, suffering has become joy. There have been days of challenges yet He has placed the true joy in my heart, even though everything seems to go wrong, in fact, every seed to come forth and bear fruit, must die. He has taught me to let go of absolutely everything and I'm finally entering His rest.
I was very contentious and was rationalizing and struggling. Everything collapsed, my husband left, I found myself in the divorce process, and then I immediately ordered the cancellation of the procedure after knowing RMI. It was the Lord who directed me here. I went through a lot of pain, suffering, was attacked from all sides, I felt humiliated, abandoned, totally unable to overcome. My husband said at the time he was with the OW “other woman” and the pain only increased, all I did was cry out to the Lord to get out of this situation. I asked forgiveness for everything I did, I threw myself on the Lord, knowing that only He could cure me, transform me and give me a new sense of life.
My husband spent 2 months in another state, returning last week, then came regularly to visit our daughter, I realized that he increasingly felt comfortable in our house. He shows no affection for me, always distant but very attentive to our daughter. I treat him with kindness, I do not ask questions about whether he is still with the OW. This week he asked me to store some belongings in our home, said he fell out with the person where he was living. I do not know where he actually resides today, nor if he has the OW, what I do know is that he spends a lot of time here with us. He said he's thinking of leaving for his hometown, but he thinks about our daughter. He urgently needs a good job to stay.
I continue in my search for the Beloved of my soul. I long earnestly to be his Beloved Bride, to be appreciated, provided in everything by Him. To have excellent moments of much peace, joy and the abundant life at His side. I have delivered everything into His hands.
My Beloved my soul longs for more of You every day. Thank you for taking the pain in my heart, taking my tears of pain. You make me lie down in green pastures and lead me in paths of righteousness and all this for the sake of Your Holy Name. I feel your love, security, peace and care more and more. I never tire of saying that you're all I need, You're all I want, You are my life and because I have You, I have everything I need. Every day you have become more and more real to me since I do not feel alone anymore as before, the pain no longer hurts as before, everything has been transformed into beauty instead of ashes. Only the Lord can turn me into His beloved bride every day, giving me the abundant life in You. Fill my being with your Love and sweet presence. Amen!
Dear Brides, the only thing I want to say to you is seeking the Beloved of your soul is what really matters. Because other things are fleeting. Only an abundant life in Him can fill the huge void that still takes up so much space in you. Surrender to Him, then you will begin to experience peace and love that exceeds understanding, guarding your minds and hearts in Him. Forget the rest, abandon everything for Him and you will be truly loved, desired and experience the beginning of a real abundant life.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Matthew 6:19–21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
