"The only way this marriage will survive is if you want it to.!" I exclaimed
"As far as I'm concerned, I'm done, finished, nada, nope, won't do it, exito stage lefto...." I said
"If this marriage were to continue, then I'd know without a shadow of doubt that there's a God in Heaven!" I blurted out
"Yall gonna get back together?!" Many acquaintances asked
"What!? Are you talkin to me?! I know you ain't askin me that maan...Nah, we done!" I replied with confidence and resolve as I made way to file my divorce papers.
"Kevin, you are free to make your own choices and decisions, but it's my desire that you not go through with the divorce..." HE said
"Man! I didn't get in this prayer line fo'dis....what happen to...It's yo' season! Harvest! Breakthrough! Name it and Claim it! Double fo'trouble! Turn to ya'neighbor and slap'em slily two times cause the lawd's gettin ready to bless yo'socks off!" *Read as the organist tunes up*
So with that last statement, The Father relayed and confirmed to me through A Man of God what He'd already told me on many occasions in times past personally in that "still small voice" as I pursued divorce, and talked with my lawyer. Thus, a choice had to be made. A dilemma had to be dealt with. Do I pursue my own thing, or do I give way to the desires of my Heavenly Father despite what I think, how I feel, or what I'd planned for my future. What would you do?
When it comes to a relationship with The Almighty, the struggle is real! Am I going to do what I feel like when I feel like it, or am I going to heed the instructions of the Creator of the Universe, I Am, let go of pride, humble myself, and trust in the One who has my best interest in mind to the infinite degree? Inquiring minds want to know, and even more practical than that, observant eyes want to see.
We live in a world that's grounded into the material, terrestrial, and natural world to the point of the blinding reality that there's more to this planet than what can be realized through the five senses. We've lost contact with our ancestral knowledge of the spiritual, metaphysical, or extra dimensional realities that those in times past were well acquainted with. Miracles do happen, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and the turning of hard hearts into hearts of flesh is one of the greatest feats speaking to the involvement of the divine in Earthly matters.
When it comes to marriage these days, the numbers speak for themselves. It's no secret that the strength of the institution of marriage has waxed and wane through the ages. When the moral fabric of a nation is strong, then so are it's core institutions such as marriage. When the morality of a nation descends into decay, so follows all of the foundational institutions in like manner. It's my belief that we're living in a time of moral decay and bankruptcy that has played out in my life in a very personal way that has lead me on a journey that if it wasn't for the relationship established with my Heavenly Father through His son Jesus Christ, I'd probably been rendered crazy and committed to an insane asylum years ago.
The power of God is real. All it takes is a determination, a hunger, or a thirst to want to know truth wherever it may lead you and the choice to let go of pride, the act of yielding, and a cry for help. Yes, miracles do happen, and with respect to my marriage, one is taking place before my eyes.
Me and my newly re-reconciled wife were on our way to Divorce Court, when the Spirit of God let us know in no uncertain terms what His desire was for us and our family. And as we pursue His desire it's evident that none of this can be done without a relationship with Him first.
I've said all of that to say that wherever you may find yourself in life to not give up, or give in to the pressures of this world. Don't let this world snuff you out. It's designed to render you sick, broke, worn out, toe-up from the flo-up, ignorant, out of shape, full of worry, depression, oppressed, and ultimately dead. There's a real God in Heaven that can and will rescue you if you ask'em. And remember that life is worth living. Learn to trust, find a community of love to dwell in, get a Bible (instruction manual) and start flipping through the pages. Ask for help believing and knowing that there's more to your life than meets the eye, gain hope, and learn to enjoy the process and not focus on the destination! May the grace of God be with you always! So be it!!
