She glanced at the clock as she turned her computer on. She still had a few minutes before logging on for her meeting with Maria. She quickly typed her password to get into email. “How do I get that to change,” she wondered as G-mail opened to her court reporting email instead of the one she wanted.
There were a few new emails, but one caught her attention. “Who’s this from?” she wondered aloud.
What do you do when you get not-so-expected news and it’s not good news? Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes United.
“Good afternoon, Ms. Lepins: We have received your filed Judgment. It was filed on 5/18/2022. Would you like to pick up your copy?”
The words seemed to scream at her and unexpected tears began to come from deep within. The pain of it all resurfaced at lightning speed; the end of one of the longest nightmares had become a reality. This chapter of her life was now closed. She wrestled with reality and denial, still soaked in disbelief, as if she was watching someone else’s movie, wishing it wasn’t hers.
She was divorced…again, and what/who she thought was her forever was gone and had ended tragically. The moment had arrived to let go of what could have been, to trade it in for whatever God had for her next. Biblical truths came rushing to the pain, soothing and comforting her like nothing else could or ever would.
Words like Romans 8:28 had her questioning how this would possible work out for her good, but she was committed to bring Him glory. She knew, from experience, that God had a plan B as a result of their choices, and He would reveal it in His time according to Jeremiah 29:11-12 for her heart was surely His, completely His now.
She struggled for understanding again, wondering how those who had caused so much pain and sorrow could go on as if nothing wrong was done…and in the throws of her doubting, Isiah 30:18 reminded her that God would have the final say; she only needed to wait on Him, in other words not take matters into her own hand.
God had not intervened like she had hoped, but He had definitely carried her through this moment; surely, He would help her soar on wings of eagle’s into the next chapter of her life.
Friend, can I encourage you that no matter what storm you are in the midst of, applying Biblical truths will help you see it as He sees it; may you have His eyes in and thru the eye of your storm.
