After learning about my authority in Yeshua (Jesus) and casting a very troublesome demon out of my home I felt the “peace that surpasses all understanding” overcome me. It’s not something I could ever explain to you in a way you could understand, it is something you’d have to experience yourself. What I can say is that it was total bliss! I was able to sit in silence without feeling any kind of stress or anxiety, I could finally feel God’s love rather than just knowing He loved me, and I could also feel the warmth of his light. What a magnificent feeling!
Since my MIL was absent during those fearful months of dealing with a demon she had no idea what was going on, but she can testify to the fact that she could tell there was a peace about me when she returned that she couldn’t explain. She even told me she was proud of me
Since I was so strong as an individual and not afraid of living on my own anymore, I knew I was ready to move back to Texas. So I made the arrangements and prepared myself for the long drive back to the city I still despised. Little did I know that God was far from over in His determination to teach us some more very valuable lessons.
When we got there some friends of ours were gracious enough to take the two of us in until we could find a decent place to live. I am so grateful to them! They are the reason we are so willing to open our homes to others who need a roof over their heads (who we trust, of course).
A couple weeks later we were all moved into a duplex where we simply waited the last couple of months before hubby came back home. It was during that time that waiting for him became all the more torturous! I think it was mainly the anticipation of having him in my arms so soon that drove me crazy!!! The other thing that sucked was that I didn’t have many friends in College Station still, so I was quite lonely. It still amazes me to this day how unwelcoming those people really were and how anyone can stand living there!!!
After about a month of nothing to do, I finally broke down and got a job at our church’s nursery. I figured it would not only get the two of us out of the house, but it would be a good learning experience for me as well since I was still pretty bad with kids. It was also nice having a little extra money come in even though we didn’t really need it.
When hubby finally made it back to his base in North Carolina I became even more anxious to see him! It was really nice being able to talk to him on the phone a lot more, but it was so painful knowing that he was back in the states and I still couldn’t touch him. 2 weeks seemed like an absolute eternity to me! However, I had a blast getting ready for him to come home since I got to buy a pretty new dress, some earrings, and shoes. I was determined to look HOT when he got back!!!
Stay tuned to find out about hubby’s return and our decision to get him into college full time, which lead to a year of financial distress.
