Yesterday, I was talking with someone and they reminded me, if I had stayed married it would have been my anniversary. Funny, I never thought about it. When I received my divorce papers in 2008, I remember feeling some sadness.
But God, yesterday, the peace of God came over me. I can look back and truly say all things worked together for my good and He gets all the glory. He blessed my mess!!
I wanted the divorce. I filed for the divorce. I left him. The awesomeness of it all, is God showed me in the midnight hour, months before the final decree came, I was wrong and I had to repent. That night, I was truly with the Lord. When I repented to God that was not enough, I had a Abraham experience, because God told me to now go to my husband and apologize and offer to reconcile. I truly in my heart of hearts did not want to reconcile. But when we tell God, yes, we have to be willing to trust Him, no matter how we feel. I did just what God told me to do, my ex husband was not ready for a reconciliation. But that was okay, because I did what I was suppose to do and God continued the work He began in me, and here we are today. My ex is happily remarried and I absolutely love him and his family. I am happy and dedicated to the Lord.
I shared this today because first, God told me to share. Secondly, to remind you that even when you make a mistake, when you operate out of His will, there is hope. He will forgive you, He will bless you, He still has a plan for you. So don't give up. Don't quit. Keep your head up.
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
