Thank the Lord that He has brought us through another year. Time is a gift from God. Every breath and heartbeat we have comes from His gracious hand. I am thankful to God for His great faithfulness and I am thankful for each sister here on this site. I pray that in the New Year we would continue to be a blessing and a support for many struggling with estrangement. Please come and share. We are here for you.
Always remember that God is able to do great and mighty things and that includes restoring families. As we begin 2019 with all its blessings and challenges, let’s remember to “Handle with Prayer” this gift of time we have been given.
I'm excited for this New Year. God has brought some surprising blessings last year ~ unexpected events we didn't expect. WOW!!! Small footsteps towards healing and reconciliation. Yes, prayers that we ALL will experience even these small measures of success. It's snowing here (hasn't snowed all month) and I'm dreaming of sourdough pizza recipes I'm going to tackle later on. The tree is still up and lit; the outdoor lights sparkle at night; Christmas cards are still coming and going. I have many put-off projects which I have to do this next week off, but (for now) I'm sitting here in my jammies, listening to Christmas music, drinking Keurig coffee, resting in the goodness of God...and thanking God for each one of you!!! Have a HAPPY New Year!!!!!
I wish I had better news. My marriage of 39 years is collapsing. It seems my whole world is...please pray for my family, what's left of it. Satan is really having a hey day with my life. Why is this happening?
Oh! fallingleaves, I’m so sorry to hear this! I wish I could give you a virtual hug right now, but please know that I’m lifting you up in prayer right now! May God speak truth and love in the hearts and minds of your family... Where Satan seeks to divide, God is victorious and heals. Where the devil seeks to confuse, God brings peace and understanding. May you feel His loving embrace and please know we’re here for you... xoxo
Falling Leaves, I am so sorry to hear of these devastating times you are going through. For sure, this is from Satan. His goal is to destroy us. He will try very hard. I know this personally in my life how he has tried to defeat me. It is a true spiritual battle. Please hold on to God and His Word. He is the Only one who will never fail us. Even if He seems far away He is right with you. He will give you the strength to be an overcome.
Falling Leaves, I am so glad I checked in here tonight before I was heading to bed. If I hadn't, I would not have read about your marriage situation. Just like lindajoan and luke, I am lifting you up to the Lord and praying for all that is going on in your life. HE truly is with you, even though you may not "feel" it. I am also praying you "do" feel it and that, in spite of everything going on around you, you truly know our God is bigger than the world and the enemy will not win.
Falling Leaves, this is such a sensitive subject, but I will boldly say that most of us have experienced difficulties in our marriages at some point. I am thinking that you may feel more comfortable private messaging us if you feel like sharing more. It is just a more private means. But, as always, God knows exactly what is going on in our lives, so please do not feel any pressure to even private message if you would rather not. HE hears our prayers. Lot of love and prayers being sent to you.
