Every day I receive notifications about views, likes, comments and messages over the blog Lawsuit and Child Custody Stress… How I Prayed.
There were over 17 views today, 10 yesterday, 114 since January 1, 3,497 in 2018, and over 10,000-15,000 since it was originally posted. My heart goes out to each and every one of you that finds yourself in the situation to need that blog. There is nothing more difficult or gut wrenching emotionally than issues surrounding your kids whether medically, through divorce, through loss, etc. If someone goes after me, I’m ok with that. But if they go after my child, oh wow… it’s WAR.
This came up as a memory of mine on social media today so I thought I’d share it with you in case you need this reminder. Luke 18:1-8.
18 One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up. 2 “There was a judge in a certain city,”he said, “who neither feared God nor cared about people. 3 A widow of that city came to him repeatedly, saying, ‘Give me justice in this dispute with my enemy.’ 4 The judge ignored her for a while, but finally he said to himself, ‘I don’t fear God or care about people, 5 but this woman is driving me crazy. I’m going to see that she gets justice, because she is wearing me out with her constant requests!’”
6 Then the Lord said, “Learn a lesson from this unjust judge. 7 Even he rendered a just decision in the end. So don’t you think God will surely give justice to his chosen people who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will grant justice to them quickly! But when the Son of Man[a] returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”
So many people in religious circles will tell you that if you have great faith, you only need to pray once and believe you received when you first prayed. As for me, I will continue to pray to the Lord often, daily and frequently seeking and hoping for justice.
Coffee cheers your way. Hang in there y’all 🙂
