12 Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God.
Do not forget the helpless.
13 Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
“He won’t call me to account”?
14 But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 Break the arm of the wicked man;
call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
that would not otherwise be found out.
16 The Lord is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land.
17 You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
so that mere earthly mortals
will never again strike terror.
Today a friend and fellow blogger goes to court to seek child support, among other things. I’m not sure of the other details of what the court proceedings will involve. By itself, that’s stressful enough. Add that her lawyer has no vision for her defense or reimbursement for what the guy had agreed upon at one time. She respectfully calls the guy “the donor,” which is nicer than I would have to offer. Add that she suffers bipolar. Add panic attacks. Add that because the donor is in arrears some $20,000, for about 5 years she has had to invest that much more into her child’s welfare and not in her car and home repairs. Imagine where that has left her, yes, you probably have an accurate mental picture. Add that she has other difficulties that trigger her when she has to spend lengthy amounts of time in traffic or in public places.
She is a loving, caring mom who is amazingly successful at doing everything for her child, in spite of everything she has endured in the past, and she, and her child, deserve better treatment than they have received from the guy or his, or her, family. (I won’t call him a man until he mans up and does what he already agreed to do to take care of his child)
If you pray, please pray with me that she will be able to navigate what she calls “the dish,” with a supernatural peace, and that her lawyer
a person who practices or studies law; an attorney or a counselor.
synonyms: attorney · counsel · counselor · legal practitioner ·
legal professional · legal adviser · member of the bar · litigator · advocate _______________________
will courageously and successfully defend her and be her advocate (see also, Lawyer)
a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy:
synonyms: champion · upholder · supporter · backer · promoter · [more]
publicly recommend or support:
for her to receive what she needs, and for justice and a fair repayment schedule for the missed payments.
If you don’t pray, please send all the positive vibes you’ve got. Thank you!
Here’s hoping, Morgueticia!
(Oh, and God, although David said to “break the arm of the wicked man,” please DON’T, as he’ll need that arm solid, to work hard and pay back his debt of child support, and to make the future payments.)
