Dear Brides, I was having a very hard battle and testing of faith when my Beloved prompted me to start the Finding the Abundant Life lessons, and these verses that I read has helped me with the current situation I am in.
1 John 5:4 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith”
Matthew 11:29. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
You may tell yourself you already know the Lord and have Him in your life. But not until your life is truly painless. A life that is lived with Joy unspeakable, and there is a peace that passes all understanding. Until then you do not have enough of Him. So please let these lessons serve as a map and guide in showing you how to have the relationship you so long desired, not just from him but also from your EH.
He had to lead me to start Finding the Abundant Life lessons which I had put behind me. The devil tried to distract me, using many tactics such as deceiving me that I was too tired, that it wouldn’t help, that my EH is with me in the same house so I don’t have any spare time, that my baby needs to be taken care of, and worldly matters like online shopping I am ashamed to admit. I do tell myself that I had this deep relationship with Him although inside, I no longer felt it like the way I used to. When I was away from my EH, especially during the time I was still pregnant and alone, (no, I know I am not alone though). He was everything I have and everything I held onto. But when my EH had asked me to move back home since having the baby, and we ended up staying in the same house because of circumstances created by Him. My alone time with my Beloved has diminished and so my faith in Him and God the father weakened. Because of this, the enemy tried his schemes once again and his attempts had me shaken, almost wanting to give in and give up to what he is saying to me.
Last night, I was hurting so bad and questioned Him about why my life seems to fall apart even more. Why I was still hurt and why He brought me home, thinking He did for me to witness first hand how painful it is having my EH live his life “happily” without me. I even asked Him that I did not want anything to do with my EH anymore and that I will not allow my EH to hurt me the way he does because to my Beloved, I am special, and perfect and worthy to be treated with love and respect and that is when He led me to start these Lessons.
Please pray with me: My Love, I am so sorry for doubting you. I know I had hurt you with the things I did and said and I feel worthless and that would even hurt you more, please my love from now, let me surrender to you and be the Bride you ask me to, and let your will be done in my life this time with the intent to know more of you and have a deep relationship with you, every day, every moment of each day. I will tell you how much I love and want you and that you are all that matters to me. Take everything away from me, from the pedestal of my heart and replaced it with the love I was supposed to have for you since you deserve it. Change me according to your image and complete the change you started in me. Let people see how much your love has changed and made me better. I want nothing else than to have deep intimacy with you because you are the only one who can give it to me. I love you so much.
Dear Brides, take His yoke for his is easy and light, you cannot make it in this journey without pressing unto Him even more. The life I was aiming for, the life we all deserve is a life free of pain and hurt because that is what he had promised if we only knew who we should focus on. It has been a long, hard and painful journey but I wouldn’t have it anyway because I was learning through the process and this process heals me. I hope it can do so for you.
Please, this book is your guide to unlocking a life that is abundant, all we ever dreamed of. Start these lessons with a clean and humble heart and I guarantee, it will replenish what has been lost and taken from you, you just have to believe.
