God is GREAT
Spoke with a lady yesterday who was affected from the fallout
of my wife's and I divorce.
Good news! She says her and her husband have a better marraige today than they have ever experienced in their 22 years of marriage.
Had the opportunity to speak with another lady who shared her past. (stemmed from me telling her about the above mentioned couple) Because of this a lots of holes in my mind were filled in. Long story short she was asking/stating/confirming that I stay where I am (single) cause God is working in my life and my wife's (former) life.
Money's tight for me. Was almost at the point of letting the finance company pick up my vehicle. I had only shared this with a few close people. Today my Mother called and wanted to know if I would be willing to trade vehicles with her. Net result of that would be I only have 11 months and car will be paid for and save 300.00 a month, maybe more because of insurance differences. (Nope, Mom was NOT one of the people I had shared with)
Same topic, trying to save money, my former wife actually looked and called and put forth a honest effort to help. *offers praise to God* She found a place with that had a 2 bedroom apartment and called and told me about it. *chuckles* Today she even took the children by there and they all liked it. This is a positive step in GOOD communication between us. Oh how I've prayed for that.
Another friend gave me a book last night, Dare To Desire - John Eldredge
I've read it 2 times already,
it's GOOD! In a nutshell:There is a desire within each of us. In the deep center of ourselves that we call our heart. We were born with it, it is never completely satisfied, and it never dies. . . Our true idenity, our reason for being, is to be found in this desire.- -Gerald May
We started our 5th DivorceCare class last night. Another group of people experiencing suffering in their lives. I have seen (experienced) the results of the recovery that this class can offer when led and movitated by the Holy Spirit. Keep us and this class in your prayers.
OK...I know that this whole post should be in Prayer Request, Yee Haa, and probably several other areas but I sure hated to bust up God's work so I stuck it all in here!
