God, Bill, Family & Friends…My Support Through an Ugly Experience

by | Nov 10, 2013 | personal journey, This Lefe Family

What a week it has been.

God has taught me much in the last seven days. He has revealed to me both truth and deception, and also whom I can trust and whom I can’t through a very ugly experience. Some day I’ll share the details here, but it’s not something I can do today. My last post shares what I expected to happen…and it did.

In times like this, I’m thankful I have a husband who loves me for who I am. A husband who doesn’t try to fix the situation, but who just listens. Who never tires of being there for me. He supports me and even possibly helps me see things from another angle. I’m so thankful for him and his heart. I’d be a mess without his love.

I’m also thankful for family and friends who are praying for me. These are people in my life whom I was able to “summon” so to speak to intercede on my behalf. And all last week, I could feel their prayers. I could feel God empowering me, His strength and His peace, even in the presence of my accusers. Their prayers were a beautiful reflection of God’s love for me. I cherish these special people in my life. You know who you are. 🙂

I have spent most of yesterday and most of this morning sitting here in my recliner, under a blanket, with my Bible on my lap reading and soaking in God’s Word. (I actually have three Bibles here with me…all different versions.) I’m yearning for God to speak to me, to guide me and to teach me. Psalm 5 spoke to my heart and encouraged me. A few verses really stood out…

Verses 4-6…”You’re not a God who smiles at sin; You cannot abide with evil. The proud wither in Your presence; You hate all who pervert and destroy what is good. You destroy those with lying lips; the Eternal detests those who murder and deceive.
Verse 8…”O Eternal One, lead me in the path of Your righteousness amidst those who wish me harm; make Your way clear to me.”

These Words of God I can cling to and stand on. And I am. May they encourage you and may they help you stand strong today too.

God bless you!
