Pray that God will do what is best for my kids

I am going through a custody/visitation battle with my ex. We were together for 5 years and it was an abusive relationship that got worse and worse over time. After I had my second child I got the strength to say enough was enough and I left him for good.I was better than that and my kids deserved better than to be around that. He had no contact for over a year and all of the sudden he decided he wants to try to come back around and filed for joint custody. I know his intentions are not what is in the best interest of our children but the court doesn't seem to care about his violent past or the fact that they may be in danger. They strictly care about being "equal" and not about the kids. He sees tax refund dollar signs and showing of his kids as trouphies so he looks like he is father of the year. That is all he cares about. He hasn't done a single thing to support them their entire lives and couldn't be bothered to show up for them to be born. I have learned many lessons for the choices I have made in my life... but I feel like with everything that is going on I feel like I am being punished. I have grown so much since I left him and I want the world for my children. I want them to have the best lives possible... this is truly going to be unfair for them. I've been praying, I got a lawyer but things just aren't going in a positive direction. The judge is dismissing everything my attorney is trying to bring in and shuts her down when she tries to speak... I don't know what else to do. I just ask for some extra prayers.. at this point that is all that can be done. Pray God's plan is truly what is best for my children...

I know what you are going through.  I was in a very abusive situation for 10 years.  I am very proud of you that you have made a very positive choice!  It does get better!  God, you are so amazing and you know the plans that you have for us.  We don’t always understand what is going on and why.  But we can relax for we know that you will not do anything that we can’t handle.  We know you are going to be there to protect us.  I ask that my friend find the confidence to stand her ground and seek your guidance in this very very difficult time.  It gets so frustrating to not be able to do the things to further protect our children.  Help reduce the frustration.  Open up the eyes of the judge and lawyers.  Allow them to see the high danger involved with this situation.  Open the eyes of the ex husband, allow him to change his thinking.  Allow him to set aside his selfishness and think about the best for the children.  Put them first in his heart and not his own!  God, provide them all comfort and safety.  Allow them to fall into your arms and be loved so unconditionally by you.  Help them to dance in the rain as well.  Even in this time of complete friction allow them each to see the small positive victories you give them.  Allow them to use these to praise you and to give them hope for the future.  Allow you to be completely enough.  Allow them to rely completely on you to fix the situation.  Allow them to hand over the control to you.
