Greater Purpose


It seems with the roller coaster of life that I often wonder; what if I had done things differently? What if I had never went down some of the paths that I did? Would things of turned out better for me or would I be missing out on something wonderful?

To be honest I don’t know how things could have been but what I do know is that I am very blessed. I can sometimes get into a rut where I don’t understand why God would allow certain things to transpire. What I have come to realize is, who am I to question God? He is not punishing me or getting any joy out of seeing me hurt. The same goes when it comes to Madalyn. Sure we may experience hardship and lack understanding at times but I have come to finally realize that there is a greater purpose.

I am in a similar situation. My ex husband (sadly) has turned his heart away from God. The choices he is making are terribly frightening. I worry so much over how the kids are treated and what they are exposed to while in his care. The future is just too much to think about. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Madalyn.

Signed, someone who understands.

One can only hope that God is truly looking after the children. I know I have made plenty of mistakes that not only have consequences for myself but my daughter as well. The Bible says that God is love, fair, kind, compassionate, etc. I pray that He will look out for our children that they may grow up knowing His perfect love.

It is written,

"Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern. So don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today."

God bless you and I will pray for you as well!
