♕ Today's Promise: "Farther than from a sunrise to a sunset— that’s how far you’ve removed our guilt from us". Psalm 103:12

This weekend, I was able to see my brothers and sisters for the first time since our country went into lockdown. It may not seem like much to you, but we are very close. I am the youngest of 5 children and we usually see each other once a month and my brother lived in Europe for a while and I have not even seen him since his return to our country.
I was excited, because I had permission from my Former Husband that my kids could also be there and he said it would be easier for him to just drop them at my sister's place because I am leaving to early for him to bring them home. This way I will be at my sister's place already and he can just bring them there.
Although the kids are now with me during the week, they still go to their dad on weekends, giving me much needed time with my Heavenly Husband🙂 This Sunday, my things did not work out as I HAVE PLANNED them. On my way to my sister, my Former Husband phoned and said, well he is at my sister's place where am I. I was still about 20 minutes away, so not wanting him to wait, I told him to leave them at my sister's place.
When I came to my sister's house, she told me that she asked him in for coffee and his words were: "I wish I could", she said as he turned away she could. He was not fast enough for her to not see the tears in his eyes.
I thought she exaggerated the story a bit, not that I think my sister would, but you know, why would he react that way. I never considered until after, that my sister's kindness must have touched him and that he was obviously not sure how she would react to seeing him. With me there, this would have never taken place, so my Heavenly Husband knew what my plans should have been even though I did not.
The next day, my Former Husband phoned me and confirmed what the Lord has shown me, that my sister showing kindness has really touched his heart and that morning we discussed some things and he cried and I assured him that all that has happened is not just his fault, that I had just as much share in the destruction of our marriage, even more so.
You know what he answered ladies? He told me that he disagrees with me on that. He went further to tell me that during our marriage I always gave him what he needed, but he never gave me what I needed.
What?!? This was exactly the opposite of what he told me when he left. He told me that he tried to save the marriage but I could not give him what he needed. Isn't our Heavenly Husband just so absolutely great!!! I don't have enough adjectives in my vocabulary to describe His goodness, His love, His care for me.
Ladies, be encouraged that when you are in the place now where you are hearing all the things that you have done wrong to be responsible for the destruction of your marriage, own it. Talk to the Lord, let Him show you what you did wrong and then let Him forgive You.
That way He will wipe the slate clean and He will remove your sins as far as the east is from the west. Another advantage is that He will also help you to not keep the other's sins against them, because if He is able to remove yours then who are you to remind others of theirs. And then, once He has done this, He will: "He will appear as your righteousness, as sure as the dawning of a new day. He will manifest as your justice, as sure and strong as the noonday sun". Psalm 37:6
