Let truth prevail!

Please pray for Gil and I - this evening we are meeting with Pete Aldrich to discuss Gil's progress and our next step. All day my stomach has been in knots and I'm a mess...Gil has had alot of trouble in the past with being dishonest (more than I can ever begin to explain) - but I am praying for truth to prevail in this meeting! Honesty plays such a major role in the marriage relationship...and I'm to the point where I'm not sure I can trust a single word that comes out of Gil's mouth - so I think Pete has his work cut out for him tonight. I'm anxious, nervous, scared, all these crazy emotions mixing together and settling right down in the pit of my stomach...

Since I've worried about this all day, I decided to look up verses in the Bible about honesty. Here is one I found that has always "spoken" to me:

"Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good repute in the sight of God and man."Proverbs 3:3-4

I gave up a long time ago on trying to "control" Gil's honesty (or maybe I should say I have been trying to direct his conscience). I worked and worked to "make" him be honest with me, until I finally realized I can't control him. I can't "make" him do anything. God will hopefully lead Gil to a place where he feels he can be completely honest with me. I have to be truthful myself (bind truth around my neck) and hope that someone who truly loves me will base their relationship with me on truth. Thank you for your prayers in advance:)!!

Oh, Abbie, I can just imagine your nerves right now. :( I will be praying for you tonight. I'll also be praying for the Spirit to convict Gil, to push him to be completely honest with you. Sorry I missed your call yesterday...I'm off to call you right now though so we can pray together. Love you!

Abbie,
I can't imagine how nervous you must be. I have tried the "control" method or as you call it "direct/guide". I think we both know that doesn't work. It is just a matter of handing it over and letting our heavenly father take care of it. Your in my prayers.
