I was wondering if you all would keep my daughter in your prayers. She has decided to go thru with divorcing her husband. Not sure if you remember a few weeks ago I had posted that she had left her husband and was partying alot. Well turns out she has not been doing anything wrong, it was just her husband saying things to get us on his side. She had a prescription drug problem recently and has been off them for about 4 mos now. But she is clean. She has gone out a few times with her sister and girlfriends, but nothing horrible like he led us to believe.
She came down to our home for about five days just before Christmas because she just had to get away from her husband and his family. I saw her and being able to talk to her face to face I have seen that she is actually doing very well. Her husband actually kicked her out of the house because of something his mother had said to him, then when he realized it wasn't true tried to get her to come back. But it was just the last straw for her. She had to leave her kids with him, because she has no job or home at this time. She is staying with her youngest sister, sharing a room in a house. She calls and visits her kids as much as possible. She has always been the main caregiver for these kids, and now her estranged husband is using the kids as weapons to hurt her.
She has been emotionally abused by this man most of her marriage and now he is angry because she is not putting up with any more abuse. She is trying to collect unemployment for the time being, and is trying to get in touch with a local woman's shelter to get some financial help to get back onto her feet as well as some legal help. But has to wait until Monday to talk more with them.
The reason I ask for prayers for her is because I am so frightened for her wellbeing right now. Now that she has told her husband that it is over he is getting pretty evil with her. He is saying the most disgusting things to her, and I can tell its going to get ugly. My biggest fear ever since they got married was if she ever left him he would hurt her. Please pray the womans shelter is able to help her and that God would keep his protection around her at all times and keep her safe. With this guy, I wouldn't put anything past him. And the hardest part is she is five hours away in another state from me and her Dad. (Yes beloved husband is her real Daddy, long story:) I also ask for prayers for my grandbabies who are caught in the middle. The only reason he wants the kids right now is because he can use them to hurt her. He has never cared for them, its always been them and their Mom.
So please keep Lisa and her kids in your prayers. I appreciate it so much, I am so worried for her. Thank you, prayers on this board have been powerful, so keep em coming for her. I will keep you posted on how things go.
