Waiting on the Lord

by Angela ()

My daughter and I are trying to remove ourselves from a domestic violence situation. I have been married to her father for 10 years now. She is 8. We have been living with extreme emotional abuse. I have sought God. I have drawn close to God. I have pleaded with the lord to change him, but he changed me instead. I am a new creation in his name. Our divorce will be final on May 23. My husband pushed for this. God has reassured me that if an unbeliever leaves let him go. My prayer is for strength through the healing process for me and my daughter, Adalyn. We are in the process of purchasing a home and awaiting on it closing so we can get away from the torture he puts upon us. There is nowhere to rent in the community we are living in. I am also a teacher. I pray that God will keep me mild and meek. I have to keep my mind on what I am doing, show Gods grace in everything I do, while my heart is breaking. My daughter and I both have been diagnosed with anxiety and PTSD. She also is ADHD. She has become withdrawn and feels noone loves her. We are starting with nothing but are blessed that we are capable of financially purchasing our own home. Sorry for the length of this but I know that God is in control and feel led to share this story.
