Thoughtful Thursday–God is At Work

By Ruth on November 25, 2010 in Uncategorized

You know, I am so glad that I cried a few nights ago and posted on here.  I needed that.  It purged me so much.  Are things any better?  No, but I had a fantastic Thanksgiving–with my real family:  my mom, Martin, and Martha.  If the weather hadn’t been the way it is now, that wouldn’t have happened.  We couldn’t leave the house.

My house is temporarily not being foreclosed.  I am literally taking it one week at a time.  At any time, the house may have to go, but God is letting me keep it for now.

My dad is still difficult, but at least I am not dealing with it alone.

And Martin?  Well, if I don’t miss my guess, he was rather tempted to go down the physical road tonight.  He and I have gotten to work together the past couple days in the snow–cutting down trees.  Sounds silly, doesn’t it?  But that has drawn us closer together.  And at least I know that he loves me.  We have our moments, and I cherish each one–like a typical woman.  With God controlling every ounce of my being, I know that I can withstand this no matter how hard it becomes.  It is a relief to know that God knows exactly what will happen when.  Yes, I have to be ready at a moment’s notice, but I also  have to live in the present.  I am grateful for dreams.  And I am even grateful for the pain.  It must mean I love him deeply to know this kind of pain!

For those of you who know our wonderful Lord,  please send up a prayer if you can for his salvation and for my family.  Pray that God’s ultimate will be worked out.  I cannot imagine how hard it would be to say goodbye to Martin again in the spring, but with the help of God, I know I can.  I must rely totally on God and follow His leading every moment of every day.

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
