For those of you who know me, know that I have been walking a life with a spouse who is an addict. It has been a really hard road for me the past year. I have seen a side of my spouse that I absolutly hate. But during all of this I am growing closer with God. It has been a long hard road. So hard that there are days that I don't "want" to get out of bed, but I do anyways and keep on moving. I have leaned on God so much and feel as a christian my faith and relationship with the Lord has grown so much. I can't begin to tell you how many times I have felt the Lord wrap his arms around me and tell me I would be ok. I had a dream the other night that I was driving back home, with both of my kids in the car, there was a car that was on fire, and in order for me to get where I was going I had to drive thru the fire. I was terrified, and histerical! I did it though and came out ok. On Easter morning I told my dh about the dream in a conversation about his drinking. I felt the Lord as I was telling him about the dream say to me " You will have to go thru the Fire, but you will come out alright"
The nail really hit the head on Wed. night, so bad that he didn't come home that night. But I had some peace and managed to sleep. I really feel comfort with my faith. To wrap this up, I had a hard week!
This afternoon, I got a call from my Pastor's wife saying that Beth Moore, for those of you who don't know who she is, she is a wonderful christian speaker and author. She has great bible studies..... well she is in Portland tonight, and the Pastor's wife has tickets for free and asked ME to join her! I feel so blessed, this is what I really need. One night away, to focus on myself and the Lord. I am excited, but most of all greatful! Greatful for the grace of God, he truly new months ago that there was a ticket for this event with my name on it!
I hope you all have a blessed night. Take care!
