Perfect Provision in Times of Waiting

Mom and Dad helped me so much through the first few days back at their home. I felt as if I were learning to function all over again. In the beginning I woke up, put my feet on the floor, brushed my hair and teeth and took care of the bare essentials for the day. By the end of […]

Empowerment in Times of Waiting

Life over the next couple of weeks went by in a blur. The telephone was already ringing off the wall before Dad could get the door unlocked. By this time my ex-husband already knew we were gone. He was away on business with friends who knew there was a major problem. They knew that we had to […]

Learning to Receive with Grace in Times of Waiting

Far too quickly the week had come to an end. My heart dropped at the thought of heading back to a place he knew all too well. I watched my parents enjoying their breakfast. I couldn’t help but wonder what was in store for them as a result of helping us. I also felt a deep pang of guilt […]

Peace in Times of Waiting

A new day dawned with much to be accomplished. I had hardly slept the night before. The telephone rang almost incessantly with questions of my whereabouts, who I was with, and many other questions I cannot recall. As I sat curled in a ball rocking back and forth from the anxiety, I was grateful to know […]

Confusion in Times of Waiting

I watched her walk onto the football field to perform for the last time at this school. She looked so beautiful as she stood nervously waiting. My heart ached as I wondered what tomorrow held. My nine and ten year old boys sat with me watching the game, nervous energy pouring from every fiber of their being. Was […]

An Awakening in Times of Waiting

I spoke with no emotion. The facts of the past few weeks tumbled out of my mouth as if the story belonged to someone else. The increasingly horrid events were recounted as if it were normal for a spouse to grab his wife by the hair, jerk her head up, and quietly order her through tightly gripped teeth to smile as if things were […]

Desperately Waiting

The argument had escalated. It seemed that anger had become his preferred method of communication – almost as if it were a high that he needed. I can’t recall his exact words. I do, however, remember the feel of his hot breath on my face has he held me pinned against the wall, angry words spewing forth from somewhere […]

Erratically Waiting

I slumped slowly to the floor. The consequences of control, fear, broken trust, and crossed lines came crushing down on me in one huge smothering heap. It is amazing how Satan paints sin to appear so harmless, so enticing. “You’ll be fine, he whispers.” “He needs this to be fulfilled…you deserve it…no one understands what you are going through…I’ve […]
