A little update

by adustyframe ~ January 27th, 2007

My husband received a letter from the attorney this week.

The attorney said he has reason to believe that the judge is currently considering my husband’s case.

Just hearing that makes me tired. It’s not that I don’t want to know. It’s just that the judge could very well agree with the current ruling which is my husband is revoked.(That means he has to sit his probation time).

We have waited so long. We really want to know. Even if the answer isn’t what we are hoping and praying for.

I just feel like anytime I check the mail or pick up the phone, I could be faced with life altering information.

Please just pray for us. Pray for the judge that he will see what God wants him to see and that he will reach a fair decision. I am still asking that you would pray for us to have peace no matter what the decision is.

I have had to pray extra hard for God’s provision this week. It’s the end of the month and everything is due.

I’ve had lots of blessings this week. I even posted about some of them.

Yesterday, my father in law gave me $10. Today men from church came over and did some fixing around the house.

I am so blessed. I know that. I know that God is in control.

I just get so tired.

    I’ve been having to wait on things happening with my girls. . . waiting on courts, especially, is incredibly difficult I think.

    But, something the Lord has been really driving home in my heart the last three weeks…They that WAIT upon the Lord will RENEW their strength.

    The longer you have to wait on the Lord, the more strength He can renew in your heart. I know it is not easy, believe me, I know, but God is faithful.

    I emailed you earlier today; if you did not get it, PLEASE email me and let me know.

    Praying for you sister!!!!

    “By Your grace, the bench of justice has become the seat of mercy. And the accuser of the brethren is silenced and sentenced…His cruel strategy of wearing out the saints and making our hearts sick through hope deferred will be exposed and broken”.

    Sometimes the “not knowing” is the hardest! As sisters in Christ, we share eachother’s burdens, even if we can’t help PHYSICALLY at least we can let you know we are “with you” in prayer.
    Don’t you wonder if you will ever feel “not tired” ever again? 😀
    I come visit almost every day to check in with you. Just wanted you to know.
    God bless, friend!

    Thank you too Janean!

    Yes I do wonder if I will ever feel rested again.

    I found your blog through another blog (can’t remember which one), and have been regularly checking in every day. I’m praying for you and your husband and son. God be with you all.

    “Elijah was afraid and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there, while he himself went a day’s journey into the desert. He came to a broom tree, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, LORD,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” 6 He looked around, and there by his head was a cake of bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. 9There he went into a cave and spent the night.” I Kings 19:3-9

    Dear Lord, please care for Lizzie and her husband the way You cared for Elija. I love You, Ame

    Hey Friend, Just stopping by to see how things are. I can’t begin to imagine the feeling of every piece of mail or every ring of the phone…wow. I will continue to uphold you in my prayers.

    You inspire me with your prayers for the Lord’s peace inspite of rather than because of the circumstances.

    Keep on keepin’ on for Him! And He will provide all your need. (Phil. 4:19)

    I’ll be praying for you, hubs, and the judge!

  14. Lisa

    Praying for you. Wishing it wasn’t the end of the month here, too, so I could help even a little. Stay in the Word and you will stay strong. Play games with your son–that’s my favorite distraction for “how do I pay all this.”

    So glad to hear your husband is feling better and more encouraged. We continue to lift you before the throne of grace.

    As a fellow Christian wife and mother, I REALLY want to pray that God will send your husband home NOW! But, I don’t do that. I do pray that, if it pleases God, He will do this soon. I know that God’s ways are perfect. I am also praying that God will turn the heart of this judge to do His will.

    Hello again.

    I have been keeping up with your blog, even though I haven’t commented or emailed in a while.

    I am glad to hear that your church sent some people to help out with some things – sometimes it seems like you are not connected with them – that they have forgotten what you are going through.

    I don’t know if you read through our story about how we started on a blog, but tomorrow is supposed to be a hearing for our midwife (who we support, but the state doesn’t) and have been talking to co-workers today about it – they are all shocked to hear that it is still going on – they assumed that since they hadn’t heard anything that it must be all done with. I imagine it is similar to your situation as well.

    Susanna Thank you for your prayers!

    Lisa–you are right. When I pray I say “God you know we want him to come home but I know your will may be different”
    I know that with all my heart but it’s a hard prayer to pray. Thank you for praying for us.

    Jon–sometimes yes I do think people don’t realize it’s still carrying on. I did read about your midwife. I will try to remember to pray that things go well tomorrow.
    I think that people get so busy and figure I must be “over it” or have figured out how to do it on my own. At first people were constantly helping me. Now I often feel like I’m a burden. It may not be what they’re thinking but…..

    Thank you all for your comments.
