I, J. B. W. H., have been married to Fear (Devil, Satan, Mortal Mind, Error) for 66 years. In that time, it has limited my choices and kept me from my true potential. I have spent those years fighting to overcome challenges with the most courageous decisions but at great mental and physical expense.
This marriage has lasted so long because despite the abuse, I have gained much. If Fear had not been the decider, many wonderful things might not have occurred in my life, e.g. my 2 children and their families; my current marriage to a wonderful man; and my deeply searching for God.
But, in all things past, great sacrifices and obstacles have been overcome because God was always there for me. “I have girded thee even if thou hast not known me.” I have been able to face unsurmountable dangers (seeming) as an angel message would appear at the very moment I needed it. I would surely have gone down into the pit if God’s grace and mercy had not appeared. I have come to the decision that for some reason, I needed Fear in the past, I need it no more. I hereby demand my freedom from Fear. I have no more use for it. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Besides, I cannot obey Fear and love God at the same time. One of them has to leave! Choose you this day who you will follow, is it Baal or God?”
So, on this day, June 26, 2007, I hereby divorce my long-time companion, Fear, not without some trepidation, and thank its spirit for molding me. I fooled you in that I was never totally faithful. I always had a true Love surrounding me and protecting me from being fully possessed by you.
And now, my True Love has been patiently waiting in the wings. I hereby declare my faith, trust, obedience, adoration, worship to the One Sustaining Infinite. I pray that I may be worthy of your Love and that You will give me the strength and ability to do Your will. I look forward to the limitless peace and joy that has always been mine to claim.
Father, Mother God, I accept You as You have accepted me as Your beloved child and heir. And I am Honored to be welcomed into your Kingdom.
Lovingly, Ruth (my Biblical name)
P.S. Since my EX (Fear) and I had such a close relationship, he still comes to visit me more often than I care. It is then, I have to follow the words of this day’s Daily Word…”Bravery makes me unstoppable.”
