Granted, divorce isn’t to be taken lightly and we know that it is God’s design that marriage last a lifetime. But, if divorce is your reality please know that it isn’t the end of the world. Your sadness doesn’t have to be forever. God still loves you!
The hole in your soul can be filled. You will come out stronger on the other side. There’s hope. Let God be your strength!
Please understand that life does get better.
“And it came to pass” is a phrase that occurs many times in the Bible. I find it to be a seriously encouraging phrase. The season you are in right now will come to pass too.
Become determined to heal from your divorce. Take comfort in knowing that the grief you feel now is for a season. Set your mind on growing from your experiences rather than drowning in them. Ask God to guide your steps.
You can’t make your divorce un-happen. You can choose to work through the grief and come out a better person on the other side.
Yes, with positive prayerful steps, this will come to pass.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1-7 (KJV)
