I want to thank my Beloved for showing Himself faithful to my youngest daughter this week when she was under attack from the enemy.
Earlier this week my youngest daughter's violin was stolen from her locker that is in the orchestra room in her middle school. She shares this locker with another fellow violinist who left school early on that day. The usual routine is that the students take their instruments home to practice each night and return them to their orchestra lockers in orchestra class before the first class starts so they don't have to carry them around all day.
On this particular day, my daughter put her violin in her locker and went on to her classes. When she returned to orchestra class, her violin was missing out of the locker. Only my daughter, the young lady she shares the locker knew the combination to their locker(or so I thought). When my daughter informed me that her instrument was missing, I became instantly worried, especially when she said her locker partner didn't take hers home by mistake. When I asked my daughter who else had the locker combination besides the two of them, she informed me of another student who she'd given it to when they were on friendlier terms.
So I asked her if she'd asked that friend if she knew anything about it. This is when my daughter told me that she and the young lady weren't "talking" right now because my daughter had passed an audition the week before and the now-estranged friend had not and stopped speaking to my daughter.
At this point, I am suspicious and trying not to let my emotions get the best of me. I have been known to be that "Momma Bear" when my children are mistreated in any way... 🙂
So, that night I called the mother of the now-estranged friend and was met with hostility and anger when I asked if her daughter knew anything or saw anyone take my daughter's violin out of her locker. I was confused and fighting my own anger when I got off the phone, but I calmed myself down long enough to take the entire matter to my daughter's Heavenly Father and asked Him to work it out and return the violin to my daughter, after seeking Him on whether my tone or my choice of words indicated that I was accusing the now-estranged friend when I spoke with her mother. I prayed with my daughter that night and assured her that God is our strong tower and would work it out, not to worry,
The next morning, my daughter texted me that the missing violin was back in her orchestra locker, unharmed! I was so excited and so grateful to my Beloved for answering my prayer, for working it out, and for showing Himself faithful to my youngest daughter. She was able to experience what I have since I started this Restoration Journey with my HH, that our God is faithful and there is NOTHING too hard for Him, no matter what the circumstances look like...
Brides, don't be afraid to put your trust in our HH, He won't let you down. He is faithful to His promises and will use every attack of the enemy to show us His goodness. He doesn't like stealing and He has every intention of righting every wrong done to us. Surrender your heart and your circumstances to Him and be encouraged, He will not fail you!
2 Thessalonians 3:v (NASB)-But the Lord is faithful and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
God is so good to us and He is good to our loved ones. He keeps all of His promises and deserves all the glory, honor and praise!
