Collaborate without boundaries

I don't want to move.

It is 9:30 at night, and I haven't slowed down since 6:30 this morning.  I took 4 carloads of stuff to my house.  I spent most of the day emptying my closet, dresser, and chest.  I kept out enough clothes for the next couple of days and put them in a suitcase.  One of my close friends met me at my house and helped me unpack my china and dishware.  I even managed to buy groceries for DH for the week and cooked dinner for the two of us.  I still have a very full day ahead of me tomorrow.  I am going to leave church as soon as my Sunday School class is over.  I hope that I can get everything done tomorrow that I need to do.  When the moving truck pulls out of here on Monday, I don't want to have to come back for anything.  It's too painful.

I've been thinking and reading about blessings in the Old Testament.  For example, when Rebekah left her family to become Isaac's wife (Genesis 24:60), her family blessed her by saying “may you increase to thousands upon thousands; may your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.”  That's how I want my goodbye to be for DH - I want it to be a blessing.  The dictionary says that a blessing is a prayer asking for God's favor and protection.  I don't think that DH will be taking Monday off, I imagine that he will go to work.  So, I will need to say my goodbyes tomorrow night.  I really don't know what to say.  I have more tears than words.  I am going to ask DH if he minds if I pray, and I am going to pray a blessing over him.  God knows this isn't what I wanted.  I pray that he will enable me to be a blessing in spite of and through it.
  • I'm crying with you. I just don't understand how anyone can think that leaving a relationship is the right thing to do. I've talked to many people who regret not working their past relationships out.

    Keep God close to your heart. He can help when no one else can. Those "last" things you do are going to be very difficult. I pray you can make it through them. I know it will be hard.

  • The seasons of our life change.  And each season has blessings and hardships, goodness, and tough moments.  You went through a season where the fruit of the tree wasn't really seen.  What was seen was the hurt of what your husband chose to do and is doing.  But, there was great fruit in this season.  Your huge growth in God.  And that is the fruit that is important.

  • now you are entering a new season.  Of adjustment and this will bear more fruit and a new level of being with God.  You will hurt, you will settle in.  You will have good moments, great moments, joyful moments, and still moments you are in the pit of despair. But those desperate moments do not have to last long,  They can be covered quickly when you allow Jesus to fill the voids you are feeling.

  • And this season too shall fade as a new season of you looking forward to life begins.  And his season has great opportunities.  Where God's divine providence for your life will blossom.  Where you will continue to grow in His peace.  And who knows what your husband will do with his free will.  But the important thing is in all of this you will have hope and faith that God is right there, like an awesome Father would do for His daughter, you.

    Go through your emotions, but let the love of God win.  And when you do, you will be more than okay.  you will be the light of Christ that does not hide under a bushel basket.

    May God's peace be with you.

  • It is time to end the asking for permission to pray over your husband.  Do it.  Does a parent hold back medicine from a kid that may not like it?  Nope, so , do not hold prayer back from him.  Say a sincere heartfelt prayer.  Doesn't need to be fancy.  Just from you to Jesus.  And your husband being as much a part of the prayer as he chooses to be.  

    YOu may be a little worried about it.  But, say a prayer the best you can, and know you have done everything the best you could.  

    Hold your head high, knowing all you did and do is for your Savior.
