The post I wasn't going to share

I didn't think I was ever going to post this story but I figured that I should because if I ever look back at my posts years from now I will be reminded of how much God listens and heals. When we let our internet go months ago we had several reasons for doing so. Then as time went on we had other things come up that we had to deal with. Basically in a nutshell I was struggling because my marriage was over. I am not going to go into details but for all intents and purposes it was done. Over. Completely. After years of struggling together I finally broke down. I couldn't take the hurt of waking up every morning wondering if that would be the day that I was on my own.

So I gave the situation completely to God. I prayed non stop. I prayed when I woke up, fixed lunch and dinner, picked up the kids from school, went to bed, etc. I prayed NON stop for God to heal my marriage. It was going to take a miracle. There was one thing that needed to happen for us to get back on track and save us. I prayed for my miracle and at some point I found hope and faith that God would listen.

And boy did he ever. Literally in one night God gave my hubby the strength and guidance he needed and it was literally in one night that God gave us our miracle. The lord healed our marriage. For the first time in years we are happy. I don't wake up in the mornings and feel stressed about the future. I can't wait for my hubby to get home so we can spend time together. Hubby calls during the day to tell me little things about his day,etc. Our kids have even noticed the difference. And the thing is that it isn't a temporary fix like in the past. This is real change. Change that only God could make happen. You can't imagine how amazing that feels. The exact things that I prayed for happened.

I am so incredibly blessed and I can honestly say that my faith is now constant. In the past I could get around it and say things were coincidence but not this time. Believe me when I say that God was and is in complete control. I have a new outlook on my life and family. I am so thankful for everything I have.

So now I am back and I don't plan on going anywhere again. It honestly does feel like I am a new person. Our family is happy and strong now. God is so good.

What a great post. Thanks for the inspiration. Not married yet, but this can apply to a lot of relationships when we are close to people and don't know how to get from here to there.
