God is good!

God is good. I have had two good days. Yesterday morning, I sent DH a simple text that said "miss you". He responded back "2", as in miss you too. I felt relieved after sending that text. Not because of his response, but because I was able to communicate that I am still thinking about him and missing him. There's been no communication since. I had a very busy day today. I spent the day with one of my best friends and avid source of support. We browsed through a large antique store this morning, then drove about an hour out of town and took a 3 1/2 mile hike in the mountains. It was beautiful. We hiked to a waterfall. It does the soul good to spend time in God's beautiful creation. On the way back home, we stopped at a country cafe and had a great meal. Once home, I cleaned up and went shopping for things that I need for the house. Slowly, the house is coming together.

As I was headed to the store this evening, I was thinking to myself after my wonderful day that life will be OK without DH.  As soon as I thought that, I turn the radio on. I listen to contemporary Christian music, and a Toby Mac song came on that somehow I had never heard before. It's called "Move".  The chorus says "I know your heart been broke again, I know your prayers ain’t been answered yet.  I know you’re feeling like you got nothing left.  Well, lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet so - Move, keep walkin’ soldier, keep movin’ on.  Move, keep walkin’ until the mornin’ comes.  Move, keep walkin’ soldier, keep movin’ on .  And lift your head, it ain’t over yet, ain’t over yet."  I know that this sounds crazy, but I felt like God was speaking directly to me. It was so weird. I parked the car in a parking lot, and pulled this song up on YouTube.  I'm not exactly sure what the message was. Perhaps my marriage isn't over. Perhaps the spiritual battle for DH's soul is not over.  I'm not sure what exactly is not over, but the message was clear. I'm still in the battle, still in the trenches. And God wants me to look and move forward, not backwards.  So, tonight I pray for two specific things. First, that God will grant DH godly sorrow that leads to repentance. Secondly, I pray that God will give me strength and wisdom to march on.
  • It's not crazy to believe God will use songs to speak to us.  I have had similar experiences...songs that speak directly to what I was thinking or feeling.  God isn't boxed in by our ideas of what He will or will not use to communicate with us.  I think it is wonderful you heard from Him like you did!  Praise the Lord!  I am happy to know you went out with a friend and had a good time.  Sometimes it is good to get out of what is familiar to us and into something new.  It's refreshing.  Thank you for sharing!   So glad you had a good day!

  • I am glad God reached you through the song.  And thank God you had two good days.  Maybe this is a new season you are starting, where you fully realize and believe life can be fantastic with God and no matter where DH is.  

  • I always have moments like that where I'm sure God is speaking to me. Too many things happen like this to think that it is a coincidence.

    Sometimes I don't like those moments because they make me think of my wife. After 20 years together it seems like everything reminds me of her. Smells, signs, food, songs, television shows. It's just so hard to move on. Even though that's what we are being told to do. Maybe to some of us moving on is waiting and praying for our spouse to come back to us and using the time in between to grow closer to God.

    I really don't think the marriage is ever over. God put the marriage together and says let not man separate. So who is man to say we are separated?

    I'm glad he responded like he did to your text.
