This was a long time

This was a long time ago when I first gave my heart to God and started serving my Lord Jesus Christ. I was living with a man whom I had 3 children by out of wedlock. We were still living together for a few months after I received my Salvation. I was getting convicted about our living situation and told the man that I had to leave or he would, because my life was different now and that I was serving God and living for God that I could no longer live in sin. This man was very abusive towards me physically, emotionally and mentally. We separated and within a few months he took my son and I ended up with my two girls. I remember walking in the woods and talking and praying to God to reunite my family and restore our family because he is a God of restoration. I kept praying and pleading with God when he spoke to me “Why?” I was like what Lord? He said “Why so you can pray to me and tell me how bad he is treating you or pray to me and ask forgiveness for fornicating, and ask for forgiveness for fornicating again and pray again asking for forgiveness.” I was like okay Lord! I knew the answer was no! Than the Lord spoke to me again and he said “1 Peter 5:7” and I knew that was a scripture from the Bible and I ran home filled with excitement and I opened up my Bible to see what else the Lord was telling me. 1 Peter 5:7 KJV Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I will always remember that when I need God he is there no matter what and he speaks to us and all he wants is that communication with us because he loves us!
