A few weeks ago I awakened early in the morning and couldn't fall back to sleep so I started praying. I was immediatley convicted for this lie I was getting ready to knowingly follow through with. So, I started arguing with God about how I knew it was wrong, but He just had to see my side of it and know that I was lying about it for the sake of my children. I pleaded with Him about how they were never going to forgive me, how they were never going to make any friends, blah, blah, blah. Let's just say that it is IMPOSSIBLE to argue with the Creator of Life and win!! After I calmed down and stopped rambling, I listened. Yes, I, Liz Bentley, actually shut my mouth in an argument and listened!! It wasn't an easy thing to do, but I am so glad that I did. Because, when I finally became quiet, I heard Him saying..."I am taking care of this-not you, but me. You have to trust me." Talk about blow me away. For the first time I realized that if I followed through with sending the kids back to Grain Valley and lying about where I lived that I would be stealing a HUGE blessing that God has in store for them all because of my disobedience. I wasn't willing to do that.
Many tears later, here we go!!
