I am a mother of 8. I gave birth to 4 of them. I have had the joy to bring into the world four children that the Lord had trusted me with. I cant say that I raised them in the best of situations, but I always raised them in church, and taught them about God. After a long, bad marriage I got separated. I didn't believe in divorce. So for three years I stayed married. When I found out that while we were together he had cheated on me. I met a man who is my husband now. I got a divorce, and got married one and half years later. He came with his four younger children. I came with my four older children. One of mine was an adult, and the other three were all home. His all were under the age of 7. I was not planning to be a mother of 8, it just happened. Obvious God had plans for me. I was asked by my four step children to adopt them four years ago. We couldn't do it, because their was not a chance the real mother would willing give up her rights. So we kept records for a chance of proof of neglect. Last year she had not paid child support, and the law said I could adopt them. Plus she had not seen them in four years. All these years and my step children, and I never called each other step anything. I was their mom, and they were my children. I pray that God would give me a second chance with my adopted children. Now 7 years as being a family we are legally family. I have actual rights as a mother, where being a step mother I had no rights. My husband worked on the road a lot in construction, and although their real mother was not around for four years she still had more rights than I did. We prayed, and had our church pray if it is God's will that the adoption would go through. January 8th the judge looked at the documents I kept, and the real mother never showed up for court. So The judge without her consent stripped her rights, and allowed the adoption that day. I went to shake her hand, and she gave me a hug instead. I will never forget the day I became their legal mother. It was just the days I gave birth to my birth children. That happiness is abundant of love, joy, peace, happiness, and so many other great feelings. I praise God for choosing me to be their mother. I will do my best in raising them to put him first. If it wasn't for him, I would not be their mother. MOTHER of 8 now. THANK YOU GOD!
Can a man or woman who is married divorce and marry again while their spouse still living? What is your thoughts in the Lord on this matter ?
If the Father does not want my husband and I to stay together, He will have to cause it to come about.
Let us help each other for the truth sake, that we may walk in the spirit of truth, unity and love. We have a cause (God' Word on the matter) . "Roland"
And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
