”Rewarded for my Obedience & Love for Him"

My journey started in September when my life was crumbling and full of hopelessness. Back in July I found out my husband was committing adultery for the second time, then told me he was leaving and ask for divorce. God talked to me in a dream that night and told me to start praying for my husband, but I was so full of despair that no word would come out of my mouth. I found a book that I had about praying and started reading the prayers for my husband everyday. I was desperate and began seeking help in every way possible to save my marriage when I found a reference in Facebook to RYM book Spanish version. I download it and started reading. By the time I got to chapter 3 I was in tears—knowing deep in my heart that was God talking to me through this book.

How did God change your situation as you sought Him wholeheartedly? *

By the time I finished reading the RYM book I put my life and my situation in God's hands. I have never read the Bible, so I bought one and started looking up every verse and chapter mentioned in the book. I wrote out all the verses on 3x5 cards. Immediately I was longing to read more and my HH started to speak to me. I started to have peace and a lot of things started to change for good inside me and around me.

What principles, from God's Word (or through our resources), did the Lord teach you during this trial? *

His promise was given to me and every word was a confirmation that I was on the right track. I choose the narrow road and stay still like my HH told me to. I also fully let go of my EH, which was the hardest thing to do, but my HH was there all the time to keep me safe and helped me feel loved.

What were the most difficult times that God helped you through? *

My EH had been in adultery since June, then left the house in October to share an apartment with a co worker. In December he filed for divorce and the court papers arrived at my door in December while my neighbors were helping me put up my front garden and our children were playing in the street. I gathered my strength in my HH and took the papers inside. I went to my prayer closet, into the arms of my HH and in pain and sorrow I asked for success, but knowing in my heart that divorce was part of His plan and I needed to be obedient and stay still.

My Lord was so gracious, during that next week and He gave me blessings that I could never imagine I would have in my entire life. The blessing was Him showing me His love in so many ways as a reward for my obedience and love for Him. In January, I went to court for the mandatory child support hearing. I did exactly what Erin suggested in the RYM and went with the best lawyer ever, Jesus, and who is the judge of all judges and my almighty God! PTL!

Yes, I was nervous, but He was there carrying me all through the hearing.

In March we had the second hearing in court and divorce was a final that day. This time I was less nervous and even more full of strength at the hearing (praying and praising the Lord in silence all the time) until the last word was said. Running to my prayer closet was not possible at the time, so I went to sit quietly at on the oceanfront near my workplace to cry myself out with my HH. After that I notice that every time I fell on my knees for my situations I was able to stand back up faster and firmly on my feet only by His Grace.

What was the “turning point” of your restoration? *

Time flew and situations with my EH and the OW started to happen, but my HH was so gracious and loving with me that I could go through them in peaceful ways and full of contentment. This does not mean that I didn't got mad at times, but I remembered that I needed to be "slow to anger and plenteous in mercy" Psalm 103: 8.

By September my EH moved in with the OW and hardship was striking even with my two boys; they didn't cope well with the situation and it was hard for them to stay with their father.

Tell us HOW it happened? Did your husband just walk in the front door? *

Things were happening so fast. My EH bought a car for the OW in September and a engagement ring early in November for her birthday. I was surprised but at the same time in perfect peace. My feelings of letting go was clearly complete. I was living and doing everything how God wanted me to, with some flaws now and then, but with peace in my heart because my HH walks with me all the time.

Then suddenly in December at 3:20pm I received a text message from my EH that read like this:

"I don't know why I'm telling you this but I want my family back, let God do his will. I don't Know what is going to happen from now on but I feel in my heart that I need to tell you this."

I was walking to my classroom to gather my things, so I hurriedly closed the door and fell on my knees praising, praying and thanking my HH for His goodness and fulfilling His will on me and my family.

We saw each other that evening, my EH talked his heart out and in tears told me that he wanted God in his life. PTL! He ask for forgiveness and if I wanted him in my life again. I told him that I forgave him long time ago, and if I needed to, I’d choose him as a husband.

We established a plan that began for the next few days: to come and pray together so every plan moving forward was God's will and purpose first before anything we wanted. The next day he gathered his things and in the afternoon we went to dinner with our two boys and gave them the good news. I will never forget the look and the smiles of my two sons that day. My EH asked them for forgiveness in tears and the only thing that they could do was hug him very hard. He moved in to our guest-room and we continued working our restoration the best that we can with God as our guide.

Did you suspect or could you tell you were close to being restored? *

I did not suspect at all that I was so close. I actually thought that it was going to take more time but was fine since I had my HH.

Would you recommend any of our resource in particular that helped you? *

I recommend RYM book, Wise Woman, Erin videos, Word of the testimony, RYM Questions and answers, My Beloved, Encourager, The Praise Report.

Would you be interested in helping encourage other women? *

Yes, I would like to encouraged other women in my country and in my first language Spanish.

What kind of encouragement would you like to leave women with in conclusion? *

Beloved I encouraged you to keep your faith, believe,pray, praise, be still and let your HH do his job. He loves you and Knows what's best for you. He wants you to be a renew woman in Him so you can receive what he promise. He is a God of word and you will see his grace and mercy! PTL!
