My heart is breaking. Some of you know, most of you don't. My marriage is in trouble and has been for quite some months now. My husband and I have been separated since just before Thanksgiving. I continue to pray for reconciliation, which God has promised me on more than one occasion, however...our ways are not His ways and our paths not His paths. As I was praying just this morning, asking God if there was another way to go, an easier way, He simply told me to 'stay the course'...He told me that He was proud of me, His beloved child. As magnificent as it is to hear from the Creator of the universe....it's not always easy to accept what He has for us. While it was reassuring to hear that I am to continue on this path right now...it isn't always a path I want to be traveling. I take comfort in knowing that I am in God's will, but that certainly does not come without a good deal of pain at times. I continue to put my faith, hope, love and trust in the Almighty!
As Jesus Christ prayed in the garden before being taken away to His death...
Luke 22: 42 'Father, if it is your Will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.'
May God bless all of you!
