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!!!
