Dear Brides. Hold on for what is going to be a hard but great ride. If I had to think about all the pain and hurt that is going on in my life in just one chapter, I can only imagine how much more I am going to have to deal with. The best part is not only will I have to deal with these many things, but God is also right there doing it for me and with me. I guess it is time we all stand up and lock arms with our Heavenly Husband. As He has always intended.
Tonight in Chapter 1 “What Is the Abundant Life?” He taught me that I really need to let go. I am so angry hurt and frustrated it is consuming me. I need to let go and just focus on Him. It has been several months now that I am just angry at Him. Angry that he took my nephew who was one of very few that I knew had a relationship with the Father that could not be destroyed. I know he is walking the streets with Jesus. I know I know I know… But why would he take someone who had such a relationship with him that it touched many many lives? Well, the why is not for me to know or understand.
I am to focus on Him and build my failed relationship with Him to a place it cannot be shaken. God has a plan and a reason for everything. I need to trust Him. Being married to an alcoholic unloving, uncaring man for 27 years and having 2 of my 3 children blame me for all that is wrong and even blaming me for ruining their lives I need God more and more every day. I need to run into His arms and stay there. Now for the hard part, I need to surrender all this pain, hurt and anger to Him right now… The problem is I do not know how to truly let go!
We all need the Lord to help us “let go” and give HIM the control, let’s pray: Father God, I ask you right now to guide me and show me how to truly surrender all to you. To let go and let you have control. I want you to be my Husband and the love of my life. I ask you to help me to attain the wisdom I need to let go. You know my heart soul and mind. Help me, Father. Help me in all I do and all that you want me to do. Give me strength and courage to release all control to you. All I want is you God, All I need is You God and if I have you I have all I need. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
Jeremiah 15:19 “Therefore, thus says the LORD, ‘If you return, then I will restore you—Before Me you will stand; And if you extract the precious from the worthless, You will become My spokesman. They for their part may turn to you, But as for you, you must not turn to them”
Dear Brides, Just keep going do not stop. Let this be the time we become all that He wants us to be. Let us let go of all worldly things.
