What a Joyful Morning!!

I have to tell you all about this morning!!

First of all, I absolutely dread going to court. It is my least favorite place in the entire world. I'd be so happy if I never went inside a courtroom again in my entire life!

And I've been praying hard for God to allow me to keep Sundays so Landon and Brady can faithfully continue in church. I want to see them grow up in the Lord's house. I want them to be taught in the Word and I want them to learn how to walk with the Lord.

When my ex husband threatened to take Sundays, I felt so despaired. I sought out the Lord in prayer. This morning, I woke up early and drove to the courthouse (a half hour away) and I worshipped the Lord. I sang his songs, repeated verses and just cried out to the Lord. As I neared the courthouse, my hands became very weak that it was shaking. I went in the bathroom and read the Bible (Proverbs 24).

Then, I sat and waited in the mediation office with my interpreter. I still didn't see my ex husband. The mediator said we would wait 15 minutes and then we waited 20 minutes. She finally excused us and officially said he was a 'no show.'

Wow, I marveled at the Lord. I have no idea what his reason is but this is a miracle! I rejoice in the victory that the Lord has given me! I haven't won the entire battle but this will surely help me! I drove all the way home screaming in joy at the top of my lungs and praising God until my voice was gone. Praise his name! Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Thank you for your prayers!!!

    I didn't see your post for prayer yesterday, but the Lord certainly is not constrained by our time! I rejoice with you today! I did not realize your situation but have been there as a child and have a sense of how heavy that is and the dread of the court you must have. The enemy would love to keep your children from growing up to be Godly men, so this area may be attacked in different ways, BUT our God is an AWESOME God. He will sustain you, protect you, provide for you and if necessary turn ashes to beauty, working all things together for good purposes in spite of the intent. I will pray for your peace and that God will bless and honor you for your obedience, trust and reliance on Him!

    Reminds me of the Word:

    "All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose".

    Praise the LORD!

    What an amazing answer to your prayers. I rejoice with you. God provided an immediate response.This makes me think of David's writing in the Psalms about how he would cry out to the LORD.You cried out, He heard you and answered. Praise God!

    I have started writing a comment to you over and over and keep deleting it because I'm not quite sure how to write what I want to say...! Even though I have not been through the EXACT situation you are going through, I understand how difficult it is to raise children as a single mother, because I too was a single mother before I met and married my husband, Daniel. I can also understand the heartache of having to deal with your children's father although I never had to go to court over it. I would like to correspond with you via email if you're interested - I would like to write a lot more than I can in a comment box like this! Can you send your email address to ? I'm thinking that sharing experiences might be an encouragement :)
