THEME THURSDAY FICTION
Once there was a woman.
God had blessed her in many ways.
She had found herself in the hopeless grip of alcoholism from which she escaped only by a miracle of God.
The power of this miracle came to her through Alcoholics Anonymous and the action of the 12 steps.
Then came the disaster of divorce.
After the pain of the loss of dreams she decided to be content learning how to live in harmony with herself and the world around her.
Then this woman received a blessing.
Another miracle happened when God brought an unexpected "soul mate" into her life.
She had never dreamed such happiness was possible for her in this lifetime. They were 'near perfect' together.
(She had learned nothing other than God is perfect.)
They were equally yoked.
Love flourished, their spiritual bond grew and she was so grateful to God for the "helpmate" she had been sent.
BUT then disaster struck this woman again in the form of forces, obsessions beyond her power to change.
He changed. Love changed. She was abandoned, discarded and dropped from his life.
At first she wondered what she had done wrong? What inherent flaws did she possess that had caused this to happen?
However, she was different now. She had changed.
She knew she was not perfect, but she knew also that she had not caused this. She could not cure it. She could not control what was happening.
Her spiritual program of action kept her steady as she turned to her only true source of power and support in desperate times - her God.
She and her husband were no longer equally yoked.
The powerful forces crumbled their love till it blew away like dust in the wind.
She cried out in pain.
She cried out in anger.
She cried out for help.
God whispered, "I love you and I will never leave you."
