Dear brides, I want to encourage you to let go of everything in confidence that He is there for you and will always be for you. His words are true and have power. His love gives you so much peace and security. You can really get the life He died for. And to get that life, it’s important to understand why you have to let go of the control that makes you think about how you should live your life. We want to determine our own opinion that leads to a life full of struggle. And you don’t have to.
I have learned in Chapter 1 “What Is the Abundant Life?” that I no longer have to live a life that is filled with tears every day. Worries about what could happen if I went wrong again. The life I have had all those years, a life full of struggle and tension is over. I can live knowing that I am free. It doesn’t matter that my EH wants to divorce me. I don’t have to be ashamed of myself. My HH takes me as I am and wants to have contact with me. That I may know that He is not far but beside me. He will be there forever. He’s precious — everything else is worthless! He wants to be with me all day long. Not just in the morning or in the evening. ALL DAY. He is the only one who will always be there for me. Has always been there. I will discover that the more I will deal with Him. How great His love is for me. He is not far. He is everything I need to live. He calls me to become his bride.
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.”
I cannot understand and with tears in my eyes I write. That I find it incredible after all I have done. The many times I have sinned against Him and hurt the people around me. He still loves me. Would like to have contact with me. Want to put the time in me to show me how much He loves me. He wants to take care of me and reassure me in every situation that hurts me. He has truly given His life to me. I am so lax. Just think of myself and the pain that others cause me. O how selfish I am.
Example: I’m alone now. My EH left me 8 months ago. But despite that, I do well according to circumstances and I experience his presence more often. I no longer feel so alone. My HH is really with me. I was recently with my three boys at a children’s farm. Around me, there were all families with children. I felt abandoned and sad. Lonely. And actually a bit stupid. I sat there alone at a table. When I asked my HH if He was with me. He did that too. I no longer felt so alone and could enjoy the rest of the afternoon. I ended the day nicely.
When you have reached the point where you no longer know what to do. Your life is full of stress like my life. Then it is now time to surrender to Him who made you. Let Him lead your life every day. Wherever you go and with whoever you are. He is not far. He’s close. He’s in you. And will always be there. Whatever happens. You live the life He has given you all day long. And it’s great to live for Him all day long. His love and mercy are so great. You can now receive the life He had reserved for you. And being able to tell that to others who live in similar situations is great.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith ”(1 John 5: 4).
Let us pray together now: My HH, I will finally find you. For a long time, I searched and fought to find you. I am getting closer to you and I feel great. Draw me closer to you. I want to know you, Lord. My Maker and Liberator of all fear and shame. I no longer just want to know what you can do for me, but who you are. Change me. Renew my thoughts so that I will find life with you.
Dear bride, I would like to say that He can give you the perfect life. A life where you see everything happening around you but you still have the assurance that you are protected by Him. He has paid a high price so that you can become a bride of Him. Life can be lived the way He had planned it for you. Without shame about the past.
The way of liberation and change that leads to the life that Jesus Christ died for really exists. You can get it. I would like to encourage you to start reading this book today. Your HH is waiting for you. But above all to prove His love. He has the best for you. You can let go of taking care of yourself. He does that.
“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world ”(1 John 4: 4).
