Collaborate without boundaries

I sit here and type all this stuff about how terrible my life is and to some who see it and read about it maybe it does look terrible but, like Tim, I see other people whose lives are in much worse shape than mine and it gives me a different perspective. I'm thankful for my health and that I get to see my children as much as I do. Satan tried to destroy my family and in some ways he succeeded, but what he didn't count on was how close he would push me to the Lord. This caused my faith to multiply exponentially but I still have such a long way to go. I have to forgive Amber and learn to communicate with her. I know this. God desires this. I just need to get there by letting God heal my heart. He's the only one who can do that.

Becca (16) came to me last night and said "Mom keeps asking me to go eat with her for my birthday." I asked her if she was going and she said no. I said "That's your choice. You can go if you want to." She said her mom told her they could go somewhere nice but she said she just doesn't want to go anywhere with her, ever. Will this last forever? I tried to fix this. I can't. We reap what we sow. I need to sow good seeds and pray for Amber and our kids. That's the limit of what I can do.

There's a free movie with snacks being played at a local church tonight and I asked Aleigha if her and Allison wanted to go. She said they did but Amber said we have to trade days and she gets Saturday but I don't want to trade an evening for a full day so no. I think I should stop asking them to do things on days I don't have them because it harms them when the plans fall through. I continue to be sad on behalf of my kids. I've said dozens of times that they don't deserve this. They don't!

I continue to pray for Amber and marriages all around the world.

  • The great news is you desire  the ability to forgive her.  

    Next time could you respond to Becca about it being her choice, more along the lines of it is in God's desire for us to be patient and kind.  And if you choose to go to dinner that may be pleasing to God.  

    That way you're giving her  a "dare" to do, yet still keeping it her decision.  

    The good news there is that Amber has to deal with the conviction God is placing on her through the rejection of the kids.  It's amazing how He can take the negative and doom and gloom and turn it into  something  good.
