Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death... or a courtroom with my ex...

Thursday, July 16, 2009

...I shall fear no evil! Not one step do we take but that our Beloved walks beside us, dwells within us.

You know… I’m gonna learn to type anything SP (be it comment, blog, or mail) in another program, cut it and paste it to SP. I just wrote my second blog, filling you in on my day, and when I clicked done, the screen went white. *sob* So here the condensed version. Lol

After sitting in the courtroom for over three hours (not a great idea with my foot still recovering from the toe amputation), my ex decided to approach one of the courtroom staff and discovered we had only to sign a paper saying I wanted enforcement to cease and then go pay court costs to file it. Spitspot and it was done. I just wish we’d done it three hours earlier.

I sat in that place, watching the throng of humanity, so many of them angry, hopeless, desolate. My heart was filled with such rejoicing that I walk in the light, that I know the God who is Love itself. I prayed for each one who came into my view, asking heaven to move them straight past sin, past religion, directly into a love relationship with our holy God. Have you heard the Brandon Heath song, “Give Me Your Eyes”? We sang it in church Sunday and I’m so glad we did. It made me so aware of my responsibility to pray for all those God brings across my path. If you haven’t heard the song, YouTube it. It’ll bless you.

Today was a milestone! My recliner is out of the kitchen/dining area and my old office chair is back at my work station. My foot is not happy about no longer being elevated, but it’s time to get one step closer to normal. Each day brings new triumphs and I see the land of infirmity receding into my history.

Thank you, each of you, for your kind words, spoken from such generous hearts. I thank you so much for standing with me for my ex-husband’s return to right standing with the Lord. Nancy, you blessed me so. To be known!! What a wonder is that? God Himself desired to be known, to be heard, to be in fellowship, in love relationship with us. Is it any wonder that we, created in His image, desire the exact same thing? Thank you for sharing your lives with me, allowing me the honor of knowing you, and for the privilege of allowing me to share my life with you, for embracing me with such compassion and understanding. You’re the BEST and I thank God for you!

P.S. Little Mel felt fine all day and the low grade fever returned at dusk. Not unusual for my girls. For some reason, sundown always seems to bring on the symptoms again. I'll get her to the doctor tomorrow now that I know it's not just going away. Thank you for remembering her in your thoughts and prayers!!

    Oh Missy!
    I so agree with Just4me927! It was no accident that you were unaware of the requirements of the support release. God meant for you to be there for those people. And how could your ex not be aware of your feelings for them and your prayers for them? That too would have been a witness to him. God only knows the results of your prayers. But results there will be, though you will only know of them when you're face to face with our Heavenly Father.

    Thank you so much for being there for so many of US too! For I'm sure that your prayers for us do not go unheard. I thank God that He has placed you in my path.

    With much love,
    Sharron

    God IS good... but I believe there ARE no accidents with Christ, so those folks you prayed for needed you there intercessing on their behalf. Praise the Lord for your submission to faithfulness!
    I LOVE the song "Give me your eyes"...I only fear that my human heart would not be able to withstand the grief that God sees, in only one second. SO many folks hurting, alone, sick, and lost. You've inspired me to press in for the lost and backsliden, esp. your former beloved. :) Continue to share your heart. The world needs to see more Jesus.

    (Your blog made me think of the song Mistaken for Jesus. Oh, the thought!)
    Have a blessed day and keep on blogging!

    So, this time it was the MAN who asked for directions?

    Glad things went easily today, and to know you're getting back to normal with your foot. I'd been hoping for a blog on this since you changed your status. It was truly a blessing to read this. Thank you.
