Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered. Proverbs 28:26
It was destined to happen. We trusted in ourselves. We walked a slippery slope and fell. This is where our story gets a little heart wrenching. Even though most of our marriage was dysfunctional, there is apart of you that wants it to work, a part of you that wants to stay in the dysfunction. But separation was the only answer.
I take my part, he takes his part. Our kids take a part of something that should not have ever happened in their lives. It’s sad, just sad.
Over the five years together we had little trust built up, we let our guards down. We were in situations that we should have never been put into in our marriage.
We. Allowed. It.
God. Allowed. It.
We had to hit rock bottom for the Lord to work in our lives.
I left Scott, he wanted a different life, he wanted someone else. So I packed up my belongings, our kids and I moved back in with my parents 1500 miles away. This was a huge adjustment. For everyone!
A part of you wants to just forget and move on, but real life slips in. We were headed into a battle
This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s. 2 Chronicles 20:15
The army was big and the frontlines were scary but the battle was the Lords!
We headed into a mean custody battle. He had his lawyer and I had mine…we fought hard. And dirty! I was not willing to give up my kids at any cost.
God works mightily behind the scenes. Just when we begin to lose hope, he is there. God got Scott’s attention…
Remember the battle is not your but the lords.
This is where our redemption story takes place. This is where our lives took a turn. God was making miracles.
His plan was unfolding…
