On June 7th I wrote "Death and Life are in your hand" How appropriate......
I have since made some major changes to how I react and respond to this single person creating so much havoc for so many years. The big one, the real changer,.... I just don't care anymore.
I don't care what he says, I don't care what he states he will do, I don't care about anything around him or actions he does take. They all come to naught. So as scripture states why worry. "cast all your cares on me, my yoke is easy and my burden is light." "give no thought for tomorrow for it has enough worries of its own." I have let go. I just don't care.
This said not caring does not create space for you to not act.
I have continued to do what is needed and pray without ceasing. I have been continually declaring the promises and the freedom and standing in the authority given to us. I have not let go of the hope and the truth, just the psychotic garbage. It has no place in my life or mind anymore, I don't care about it.
I have been able to get to the place where the response is one of just letting go and letting God because what do I gain with my worry.
So with all that said, I now stand in a place of freedom and victory.
Firstly, Thank you to those standing with us in prayer to see actions take place that can execute freedom and justice. Its been a long time coming.
I am pleased to let you know that the contempt trial went, well, in a way that none of the other trials over the last 8 years have gone.
We have our freedom.
I don't even know where to begin in letting you know about how it came about, which is why it has taken almost a month to let you in on the miracle. I will probably stumble my way through so please have patience, this is surreal.
As you know this legal battle started when my son was only a few weeks old and has been a source of turmoil and stress. Over those many years he was ordered to pay child support. He only did when he chose or felt it gave his aim a perceived asset.
His lack of payments and continual threats left me with only one option. I do not want the money. Never have. Never will. Its blood money. Yet it has been the only area that he can be held accountable for his actions. I took him for contempt of non-payment.
He was being charged with 19 counts of criminal contempt. Each count is considered a crime of moral turpitude. Crimes of moral turpitude keep you from being able to acquire a visa.
He not only was convicted on all 19 but was sentenced to time in jail for each one with a warrant for arrest if he does enter. Freedom.
He will never be able to have the visa department overlook 19 convictions for crime of moral turpitude. He will never again be able to just show up outside our home. To torment me with his presence. To force my son to interact with him. To taunt, and tease, and steal, and manipulate.It took 8 long years but we are free!!!!!
To add to that, I got all of my attorneys fees awarded to me. Meaning he has to pay my attorney for the work he did that convicted him.
And if it couldn't get any more amazing, this all occurred on the very day I stepped off a plane 8 years ago. Biblically 8 is the year of New Beginnings! and I feel it...... boy do I feel it.
I just want to rejoice and sign and dance and laugh and praise and say thank you! I feel the freedom and the burden gone. I sleep through the night now! I laugh and Im starting to learn how to be happy and have joy again.
Its greater than I thought was ever going to happen and what is typical for these trials. Only God.
I finally feel like I was heard and seen.
I cannot wait to see what comes next.
I know that this is finally the breakthrough, the miracle. And I share with everyone I can Gods goodness and faithfulness and that He keeps His word and His promises.
And more than anything I do not gloat over this man. I am saddened for him. The path he has chosen. The self inflicted pain he has created. The hardness of his heart. I pray one day he is able to see the truth. That he can see what his actions did and where they left him. I pray that he is able to have a true and real encounter with God and gain the real truth and freedom of the spirit. I pray he does not waste the rest of his life burning with hatred but can find life. I have pity on him.
And one day, hopefully soon, he will sign all rights and ability to seek and pursue away. That he will truly sign our freedom to us because that is what I hope and pray for, and what everyone tells me I can't have.
But my God is a God of the impossible and it is impossible,...........
but with God all things are possible.
Just look at what He did for us so far. Can you not perceive it?
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 12 Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. ~Matthew 7: 7-12
