I was reading Proverbs 19 this morning, thinking of all of you fighting for your family, when I came across this awesome verse:
Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand.
I am praying for you today that no matter what comes your way, no matter what ideas and plans your wandering spouse comes up with, you will be able to say to your emotions, your fears, your own desires and your own thoughts…Talk to the hand!
In our darkest of days God gave me the supernatural strength and ability to do this. I pray the same for you! I pray that you will keep your eyes on the one who is really in charge and have the patience and faith to walk out His perfect will and see His counsel come to pass.
How did this look practically?
Most importantly I read the Word every time fear taunted me and tried choke my Faith. Sometimes it was several times a day, once a day, or every other day.
Also, and I have said this before, I was VERY careful who I talked to. I only talked to those who needed to know. Pastor, Counselor, and my two friends standing with me in Faith. That is it. Besides that I kept myself busy with my business, being a Mom, and church life.
Another thing I did, and I can thank my mom for teaching me this, I took care of myself physically. I have never been one to work out so I didn’t do that but I always looked nice. I think that is very important. I did not walk around looking defeated and helpless, especially in front of Darin.
Darin and I are standing with you!
