Please remember me and my 4 young children in your prayers. Custody evaluations are beginning (divorcing), and housing and finances are in complete upheaval. I have no idea what life will be like 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months from now, it’s very unsettling.
Life is upside-down and inside-out. My brain is fried, my emotions are fried, I just wish Jesus would hold me safely for a while and shield me from this storm. I “know” God loves me but it is more of an intellectual knowledge than a deep personal conviction. I don’t ask, “where is God, why is he allowing this to happen to me” etc, but I long to know him as he is—three True Persons, real Persons.
But even above being comforted and consoled, I desire to be conducive to receiving all the graces God wants to give me so that I may have the strength to do the very difficult things that need to be done to ensure a decent life for me and my kids. I want to run and hide from all this, to be taken care of, feel cherished and protected, but that won’t put food on the table and a roof over my kids’ heads.
Please pray for me to have a more thankful heart, for spiritual protection, the ability to hear God and understand his will for me throughout this trial, and above all, faithfulness.
Thank you in advance, I pray for the board intentions as well.
