Focus Focus Focus... Not my strong point. Instead I enjoy life regardless of my focus.

who knows

A prophet spoke at a revival at church tonight my daughter went I didn't and he doesn't know us he is from another part of the world and he said your family is being kicked while it is down, but God will gel you back together again. He didn't say what we would go through or how long it would take but he said God would.

Then I talked to Kevin and he told me he couldn't take it anymore he was leaving me, He already had taken his check out of the bank this morning. I still have money to get by with and he says he will take care of us, but he also said he would never leave. I am not sure what to do right now but God and the Holy spirit are guiding me in my every move.

Please pray because this is not what I want and I am so saddened by it I can't tell you. I know God brought us together I can't believe he doesn't. I am so scared. My son can't believe this is happening to him and neither can I. Lord please lift these burdens.

    Okay, I'm going to be blunt. What I'm seeing is an incredible fear in you of living apart from your husband. I would probably have the same fear in your situation. But, you have to understand, you cannot, nor should you even try to, control how he feels or thinks of you. The thing you do have control over is how you feel about yourself. You need to put aside anything he has said about you, and realize that you have worth. God has given you your own special talents and gifts. You should not waste them, or your time trying to impress or coerce your husband. Jesus is the only one who matters, and guess what? He is already impressed, after all, you are his Fathers handiwork! Start living for Jesus, and through him, for yourself. Everything will fall into place then. There will be bumps in the road, to be sure. Some may seem insurmountable. But stay focused on Jesus, and you will get through anything. Stay strong! And don't be afraid of turning to your family, or your church when you feel down. If you need advice or support, feel free to e-mail me through my profile. I will be praying for you. God bless you, Ken

    I'm so sorry. I know that this must be undescribably heartbreaking. I'm sorry you're scared. I know I would be, too. But you are not alone. And GOD alone is the one who provides for your needs.

    As for the man who spoke at your church - I do believe that God speaks through prophetic voices in our generation. BUT, we need to be very, very, very careful about how we handle any "words" from someone claiming to be "a prophet", or to be speaking with any sort of "prophetic authority". I'm not saying that you are staking all your hope on what this man said. But I just don't want to see you clinging to a man's word as the hope and direction for your future, without real, confirmed clarity from the Word of God about what His purpose is in your life in this season.
    Perhaps this man was right, and God may do a miraculous work to gel your family back together again. But even if that is the case, that might not even look anything close to what you might be thinking about now. Your family being gelled back together may mean you and your kids being drawn together in love, apart from the turmoil being brought into the family by Kevin's inability(refusal?) to love as a husband and father should. It could mean each of you individually, where your hearts have been broken, being healed and restored by the Lord to a place of being able to walk free from the scars of this whole experience. It may just mean that this man could see the anguish in your daughters eyes, and he wanted to say something to bring her comfort. Or, It may mean something entirely different than any of those things. I have no idea.

    But I do know this - keep your eyes on JESUS. HE is your hope, your sustainer, your deliverer, your healer. He desires for you to LIVE, for you and your children to know His love, and to bring you into the fullness of His desires for you.

    I know you are both right, and I am trying sooo hard but I am weak! I ache to my bones, and I pray constantly I know God has a plan for me but it is hard to let go of what you thought was a gift from God already. I am turning him over to God several times a day, but I ache to see him so lost as well as away from me. I hate to think that Jesus will come and he is still lost. Still, thank you for the encouragement.

    To my sister....in Christ,

    I am so sorry for your heartbreak. I have tried typing just the right comment three times.....still, I want to let you know that you are not alone. Lift your eyes from the things of this world...and rest in His love and care. His ways...are higher than anything we may think we desire. His purpose for our life.....is perfect. You are precious in His sight....you are of great value...such value.....

    For today--for this moment, focus on who you are in Him. You are His beloved child. You are part of the body...the Bride of Christ. You are cherished!

    Yes, in this fallen world, we must walk through many valleys--still, He has promised to be there with us. It is clear....you are relying on Him for this valley--I will pray that you will continue to do just that.

    Today--in this moment, lift your eyes from the pain of the valley to the Healer of this journey. He is your source of strength; focus today just on YOU. Let His love cover you--grab your Bible, grab your favorite Christian CD...let His word cover you!

    And if you are too weak to do any of that.....please know that you are covered in prayer from your unknown family of God in blog-dom!

    When situations like this happen, we are tempted to focus only on the pain of it, or we are tempted to beat ourselves up when we can't find our way out. Turn that temptation around my friend,,,,,,turn your eyes upon Jesus.....see yourself through His eyes of love! May you be blessed this day with His view...not the world's view.

    been praying for you since I heard, and will continue without ceasing Michelle...for you, your babies, Kevin and all your loved ones around you.

    what is loosed in Heaven is loosed on earth...you have freedom in Heaven and therefore, dear child, do here also...

    know that you are loved and not judged by so many who do not even know you face to face
