"I am leaving my husband," she said. She seemed to be happy about the news. I wasn't shocked because she said this every week.
"You have known me all of this time and you asked why. He won't help me with the kids or the bills and I am tired of struggling with all of this by myself."
I sat on the sofa trying to figure out what to say to her. I wanted to be a good friend and comfort her. At the same time, I didn't know if this was a whim or not. "Have you consulted God?" I asked after a moment.
Ther was a pause on the phone for a moment. "You know the truth is, I never asked God for permissin to marry him the first time. I just did what I wanted to do because I didn't want to be talked about for what I did."
I still didn't have an answer for her. What od you tell someone who don't consult God? You are just inviting trouble. "I still think you should talk to God about this. i can't tell you what to do, I never been where you are going."
She wasn't finished with me yet. "there is more. I have a boyfriend."
I wanted to put the phone over my ears and just shrink away. "Okay before you go through with this again. Let me just say this, when we make snap decisions. It affects everyone involved. You cannot start one situation without finishing the current one. Before you make a dumb mistake. Talk it over with God."
After that, I hung up the phone quickly and prayed for her!
