ok... anyone want to pray for me?

Postby daffodyllady on Sat Jul 02, 2005 9:40 am

I'm in the middle of a hard time right now. I'm between jobs, and living too close to the edge, financially. Having to dip into the inheritance pittance I got last month. Child support dropped this month, leaving me even less. And to top it all off, now that the child support is taking less out of ex-hubby's pocketbook, he was able to drive up in a pretty new car to pick up daughter to take her out for the day. <br>
<br>
grrrr. Attitude adjustment needed here. <br>
<br>
Yeah, I need prayer first of all that God would help me love my ex enough to forgive him.<br>
<br>
And I need wisdom and help in the finances department. <br>
<br>
I guess most of all, I need faith.<br>

When Im low on funds and wondering what am I gonna do....<br>
I remember this verse and it brings to mind what is really important. It really brings my true problem into focus.<br>
<br>
Jam 2:5 <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Give ear, my dear brothers; are not those who are poor in the things of this world marked out by God to have faith as their wealth, and for their heritage the kingdom which he has said he will give to those who have love for him?</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> <br>
<br>
Many times the Lord has let me sit and stew....He will let me absolutely exhaust myself from worry....He waits till I finally throw my hands up and say....there is nothing I can do of myself....Lord you have to help me.<br>
<br>
It been those times that have been the biggest faith builders for me. Because I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt....that I had nothing to do with the bills getting paid and the food on the table.<br>
<br>
I learned...to be oh so thankful for what little I had because if it werent for the Lord ....I wouldnt have even had that.<br>
<br>
And that even though the world counts what little I have as nothing.....my true treasure is buried else where, and with it Im richer than than anything money can buy. <p><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong><!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="color:purple;">~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~</span><!--EZCODE FONT END--></strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br>
<!--EZCODE FONT START--><span style="color:teal;">"Seek ye out of the book of the LORD,and read: no one of these shall fail...Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things old and new...Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.” Isa.34:16a, Matt.13:52, 2Tim 4:2<br>
<br>
"A man was meant to be doubtful about himself, but undoubting about the truth; this has been exactly reversed."<br>

Praying for you Daffodyllady.<br>
<br>
Its not easy to be in your situation...been there myself years ago. Don't lose faith, God will provide for you. Things looked pretty grim for me and my children many times, but He always came through.....usually after letting me sweat for a while! lol....Great faith building days those were, as I look back on them now.<br>
<br>
My ex also, could do many things for and with the children, that I couldn't afford...But when they all became adults, every one of them told me, back then it didn't matter that I couldn't give them the fancy stuff---that it was more important, looking back, that I was just there every day.<br>
You're showing them Jesus...that's the most important treasure you have.<br>

Dont let the worries of money get you down and be thankful that your x is driving a new car. Remember you cant take money with you and who wants the car payments. <br>
<br>
I have been through the same things and if you dont mind it just wont matter. It's all about a mind set that you have to have. <br>
<br>
I will pray that God gives you a total peace about it all.<br>
<br>
I look at the sparrows and think how insignificate (sp) they are and how God takes care of them with the utmost love . You are more important then they so take a load off and rest your mind .<br>
<br>
With love<br>

You have my prayers too daffy <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
Perhaps a start on forgiveness would be knowing that it actually would help YOU. Like, you don't gotta wait to "feel the love" to decide to forgive and then just hand the ex and his car and the whole thing over to God to deal with!<br>
Like He told me recently, you gonna handle all this? Or you want me to? <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :cheeky --><img src=http://www.smileys.ws/sm/cheeky/00000025.gif ALT=":cheeky"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>

Thanks everyone!<br>
I am feeling a little better. Yes, I know... I actually pity the guy. He needs help from God so badly. And God is my provider. He isnt dependant on my x to help me. God has provided so many times far beyond how I thought he would. And sometimes, it was truely miraculous.<br>
So thanks everyone, for your prayers.<br>

Just a great big THANK YOU to all of you for praying for me/us.<br>
<br>
A very interresting thing happened. Ex-hubby called me up this week and offered to pay back all the money ($4000) that got taken from me by the IRS to pay his back taxes. He also said a few interresting things about our relationship. Said he realises now that I was not to blame for the way our marriage went. He says he knows now that he was cruel to me. (Huh??) Wow. I said.."keep talking, I like this." LOL<br>
<br>
Seems like God is working in him. Thank you, Jesus!!!!!<br>

This one helps me out. The second part of Jesus response means a lot "Why are you so afraid?". I think this verse everytime I feel like there is no other way out. And then I say to the Lord here you handle this I sure can't. And I try to forget all about the problem and not worry about it. The Lord always provides. <br>
<br>
Matthew 8 23:27<br>
23Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" <br>
26He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. <br>
<br>
27The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!" <br>

On a side not growing up my step father left my mother. It was me and her and my brother off at college stuck on her income. Which was not enough especially with all the financial mess my stepfather had also left for my mother. We survived I came out ok. I gotta say tho its sad my mother had to go through all that it really wasnt fair she sure didnt deserve that. I helped her as i could etc.. And she was a very good example of soemone who knows how to persevere. And now later in life I'm falling on some tough times and I think back to those times with my mother and how terrible those where and i think well this could be worse. As for my stepfather who knows no one talks to him anymore. I feel I have forgiven him and moved on. But I wont entertain his company or be his friend as he caused us tons of trouble trouble I'd rather not let back into my life.<br>
