For many people dealing with divorce is like dealing with death. Having your marriage die creates a sense of loss whether or not you are the one who ends up filing for divorce. And, when you experience such a huge loss, you grieve.
Its natural. But, what do you do with that grief?
You do well to face it. When you shove grief down it doesn’t get resolved. When you process through the grief you allow yourself to experience the emotions and resolve them.
Resolving emotions includes understanding the thoughts behind those emotions and making choices to move beyond those thoughts. That sounds overwhelming I know because I’ve been where you are now. But, you can do this!
God has blessed you with the ability to be resilient. Moving past the grief is often a challenging journey but you CAN prayerfully move beyond the pain and grief. It takes prayer and often takes guidance.
I’ve worked through divorce grief and come out fine on the other side. You can do it too. You can have hope for peace.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
