This is where I am...

Life sometimes brings moments when.....

someone you love will be misunderstood and untruths will be told.

you will want the whole truth to be told but you must trust that God knows man's heart and that is what matters.

you will hurt so deeply because someone has lead others to believe falsely of the character of someone you love so much.

you will have to stop and think, 'did this really happen?'

you will be thankful that your children are too young to understand what is going on.

you will make the best of it and hide your tears because of your precious babies.

you will ask, "Why now, why at this moment?"

you will wonder, 'how would they feel if the tables were turned?'

you will never forget that Christmas.

you will have to make arrangements and decisions that you never thought you would.

you will wonder how someone could treat your family this way with a clear conscience.

you will stand firmly by and believe fully in the integrity of your husband.

you will hate not being able to say goodbye to those you cared about.

your heart will hurt but God will heal.

you will cling to Christ and those precious people He has given you to hold you up in prayer.

your faith in man may waiver but your faith in God will remain steadfast.

This is where I am.

I lift up my eyes to the hills. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. ~ Psalm 121:1,2

But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. ~ Psalm 3:3

God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. 1 Corinthians 1:9

I am praying for you...remember:

"The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16b"

God has His hand on this situation, and He knows what He is doing. In spite of the hurt and betrayal, He is there. Trust that He will bring you through the fire, and that you will be refined when He does.
