I have been struggling with something that I realised months back must be a part of my Heavenly Loves plan.
My former husband sent me a pdf to confirm that the divorce had gone through and I thanked him and asked him for the original documents which I need to have a copy of so that I can do my surname change etc and from then on he went dead silent. He won’t give me those documents and has been stalling to officialise things according to our culture and I have just been feeling so stuck.
As I was feeling that way my Beloved kept reminding me to seek Him more and I went on a prayer journey. As I was on that prayer journey I kept feeling as if it just wasn’t enough and I needed a deeper intimacy.
As I read the restored marriage testimony today I could feel the peace and intimacy that the writer experienced and it clicked that it’s exactly what I needed so I immediately came to the Abundant life course and this time with the intention of documenting and finishing what I have started.
I thought what I needed was for my marriage to be restored but I was extremely wrong. In the past couple of months, I have honestly grown to enjoy being with just my HH and now I need the next level of intimacy and for us to just move on.
Isaiah 54:5 “For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called”.
This scripture has just emphasised what the Holy Spirit has been impressing in my heart over the past couple of days. I was being impressed to seek to know more about the Lord than His blessing, and now I understand why that has been happening. I have already been spending a large portion of my day with the Lord than I had been doing before and I have realised how much my faith and love for Him has grown.
Over the past few days, I have been asking Him how I can know more about Him and seek an even closer walk with Him and I realised I had to go the Abundant life courses as I read through the Daily Encourager.
I will continue to share these principles with the women that I have been working with. Of late on the prayer journey we embarked on as a group we have been talking about just having a closer walk with our Beloved. More than ever today I am sure that this is the most perfect path for me to go down and it’s time to live it out faithfully. With or without documents my life must go on even more beautiful than ever.
If you are longing for deeper intimacy and want to be closer to your HH, pray with me: Dear Lord: Thank you for loving me so deeply. I know you led me back to this lesson Chapter 1 “What Is the Abundant Life?” with the journey we have been going on. Please continue to mold me and to make me into the type of bride you need me to be. I love you so so deeply and if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here today. Please teach me how to fall in love and how to enjoy the deepest intimacy ever with you.
Dear Brides, I know it may seem as if your world keeps getting darker but everything changes when you begin to seek for Him more. Jesus is all you need and all you will ever need for the light to conquer that darkness. This is the beginning of the most beautiful love story of your life. No movie or book can ever document the intimacy experienced by beginning this fulfilling journey.
Reading this book has made me realise the beauty of having an intimate walk with the Lord.
Reading Fariha’s urgency in obtaining documents, triggered a Living Lesson that took me years to grasp. Each and every time I encountered a similar delay or have been blocked, it wasn’t until I looked for my HH protection, His ultimate wisdom, which once discovered left me in complete awe!
Embracing these adversarial encounters, rather than to stop or get around them, is what will bring about the understanding that will leave you speechless.
Michele, Facing Divorce Again, shares how for years she tried to get her EH‘s name off documents, then during an encounter when she was too tired to try to fix it, she saw how beautifully He had plans far beyond what she could ever have dreamed or imagined. When sharing this with a friend, Michele’s friend did the same with a timeshare her ex’s name was on. She tried unsuccessfully to remove his name but decided to also embrace this adversity. Low and behold she realized that by having her “spouse” on her account allowed her to no longer be required to take tours (they are always trying to sell more) nor listen to the sales pitch. She also found that her two sons share her ex’s middle name, so they are able to benefit and check in without paying a guest fee!
ONLY GOD is able to orchestrate something so amazing.
Ephesians 3:20 TLB—
“Now glory be to God, who by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.”
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for [OUR] good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28).
“But I say to you, do not resist an evil …[anything].” For there is usually a hidden blessing so embrace it!
Also remember, for His brides, He gives until it is overflowing—so that those closest to you can also be drenched with His blessings! When we give our love, time and passion to Him we should expect and look for what He’s got for us, and they usually are delivered by way of adversity or trials.
“Give generously and generous gifts will be given back to you, shaken down to make room for more. Abundant gifts will pour out upon you with such an overflowing measure that it will run over the top! Your measurement of generosity becomes the measurement of your return.” TPT Luke 6:38
