Appealing To God

In you, Lord my God,

I put my trust.

do not let me be put to shame,

nor let my enemies triumph over me.

No one who hopes in you

will every be put to shame,

but shame will come on those

who are treacherous without cause.

-Psalm 25:1-3, NIVUK


When I was struggling with anxiety and fears, I had some spiritual “war” verses that I had printed out and used as prayers nearly daily. These three verses from Psalm 25, which are attributed to King David, were some of the verses I used to fight fear and anxiety.

They remind us of who is in control. And they are a time-tested and proven method of pouring out our souls to a God who actually does care.

Our deliverance may not always look the way we want it–e.g. I really did not want to be divorced at the time. However, God knows best. He paved a way for me to have a fresh start with Mrs. DM and my favorite munchkin!

Remember, God has promised to always be with us (Hebrews 13:5). It may not feel like it some days. But it is still true.

Cry out to Him!

He is always ready to listen.

  1. Thank you for your work. Any words of wisdom, scripture to help us who are struggling with child acting out issues? Teenagers have it rough as it is, divorce under any circumstances really makes an already difficult transition perilous.

    1. That’s a tough one, mommythree. Generally, I gravitate to Scripture reminding me that I am not alone and will not be abandoned. Hebrews 13:4 or John 6:37. Another one talks about God taking us even if parents do not (Ps 27:10) but I suspect that would be more for the kids. In my opinion, I see adultery as a rejection of them as well. The adulterer/adulteress is rejecting half of his/her kid by such actions. It is such evil. Hurts so many people.

    2. Mommy of three- you could check out the U of MN’s Extension services. It’s not a religious based program but a lot of their material is online/free. The Parents Forever program specifically focuses on divorce when kids are present
