♕ Today's Promise: "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." Timothy 3:16-17
First and foremost I am most grateful to my Lord and Savior, my Beloved, my Bridegroom, my Redeemer, the Lover of my soul, my Heavenly Husband for guiding me to this website. You have been so faithful to me. Thank You for walking every step of the way with me so far. You are lovingly and patiently teaching me.
To each and every one of you, THANK YOU for everything that you have done and are doing for this ministry. I pray that our Beloved blesses you above and beyond what you can ask for or imagine. These past 30 days have not been easy but our HH (Heavenly Husband) has been so faithful. He is teaching me to let go and little by little He has been healing the pain. I have never been a morning person, I'm still not a morning person, but I wake up differently now. I am grateful to wake up and I greet Him with a "Good Morning". I start my day with prayer and reading the Bible, I never did that before. I feel more at peace, like a weight has been lifted off me. There are times that I do feel anxious and afraid, but I don't let those feelings rule me. I am learning to run to Him. The day before He reminded me that I once told Him that I would be okay if He didn't want me to marry because He was more than enough for me. I meant it when I was young and I realize I mean it now. You are all I want, You are all I ever needed, You are all I live for. There is no one like You. I have also changed how I'm praying for my FH (Former Husband). At the beginning I was praying for God to have mercy and restore our marriage. Now I'm praying for my Beloved HH to have mercy on my FH so he can rededicate his life. This life is temporary and fleeting his salvation is more important to me than us getting remarried.
Once again thank you for your dedication and service to this ministry and to our HH (Heavenly Husband). I apologize if this was not what I was supposed to write. I pray we let the Word of God take root in our hearts so that we may be equipped for the good work He has set before us. "By the Word of Their Testimony" is amazing. It is full of the faithfulness of our HH. Our stories are different, but you will find, as I did, many similarities and if our HH could change their situation then He can and will change ours as well. This book will help you to let go and to trust our HH as He works in our lives. I did not have these resources from the beginning so I "pushed and pushed," as my FH (Former Husband) told me once. At first he agreed to stay and work on our marriage, but I was needy, desperate, clingy, and frustrated because I was not seeing the results that I wanted to see. So much so that within 3 months he filed for divorce. Our divorce was finalized (eleven months after he filed). Just weeks after our divorce went through he accidently sent me a text meant for the OW (other woman) and I was completely heartbroken. I had no idea he was with someone already. I couldn't breathe. I was desperate for hope so I did a search for marriage restoration after divorce and I found your website. I was a HORRIBLE, no good, rotten wife and the Lord was showing me but I didn't know how to stop. I kept blaming my FH. Your resources confirmed what our HH was lovingly trying to teach me but I was so stubborn, and arrogant, and prideful I didn't want to turn from my evil ways.
Just weeks before our separation in August 2019 our pastor was teaching on Ephesians 5:22-33. On the last Sunday of the Sermon Series he requested the wives do something for their husbands to show our appreciation. I was not listening so I can not tell you what it was, but I do remember thinking, "Well, it's a good thing that he didn't come to church today because there's no way in hell I would do that." And even then I heard His still, small voice. A week later, on what would have been our 20th anniversary, we had the fight that broke the camel's back. That is how desperately our HH wanted me to change. He warned me over and over again, but I did not listen.
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.”
