Timely Encouragement

I had to make one of those serious phone calls I’m going to have to make a lot of from now until this mess is over. It’s not what I want, and it’s certainly not what I prayed for, but it is apparently what I’m supposed to do. Sometimes life simply sucks. Whether you are facing the possible death of your child or the realization that your spouse is abusive, life is never truly what we want it to be.

Before I called I decided to flip through the Psalms. This is what I came across and read:20150202_130259It’s OK to pray for deliverance from your abuser(s). It’s OK to call them what they are. There are people oppressed by their governments, there are people oppressed by their relatives. And they can all call on God for deliverance from the oppression. Really, it’s OK. 🙂
