If you've ever watched a movie where a person has been brain washed, this is what the boy is like. He is so different, so changed, so cold, it is scarey.
Mom has also grown through this biggest challenge of her life. She thought the affairs and then the divorce was her biggest, most painful times of her life. It doesn't compare to the pain of this season she is walking through. Mom is being refined, and it is painful. Mom is walking thru the valley of the shadow of death and has been for one year now, but she chooses to keep her eyes on Jesus. He is her strength. He knows her pain. He has seen every.single.tear she has shed, and there has been many over the past year.
Mom shared with me that her eyes have even open to some truths. She was not fully living her life the way God intended. It was brougth to her attention there are some rules that must be followed:
- God first
- Husband second
- Kids third...even if those kids don't belong to the husband. Even if mom has loved those kids longer than she has loved her new husband.
Mom has also shared that the mighty God she loves so much is telling her, 'It is time. It is time to live this life to the fullest. It is time to appreciate every single second I give you. It is time to fully hand ME MY BOY BACK. HE IS MINE AND I LOVE HIM MORE THAN YOU DO. It is time to let go and let ME deal with MY miracle.'
Bloggy friends will you pray for my friend? Will you pray for her biggest Miracle? Will you pray for reconciliation for the mom and her two boys?
Resting in Jesus,
