Keeping It Real: DIVORCE

Okay, fact: God hates divorce. Fact: Because we are human and the state of our world, divorce is a reality for many. Fact: There is life and forgiveness and restoration available after divorce. If God does not condemn you, don’t let people do it either.

Remember that men are not Band-Aids. I know the popular train of thought is that the best way to get over one man is with another man, but that is just not true. You need to be free emotionally and spiritually—clear and whole—before moving on to another relationship. Otherwise you bring too much baggage into the situation and you might fall into the same type of traps.

So take time for you after a relationship ends. You owe it to yourself to get you back and get centered in who you are in Christ. To take stock of your world and what you would like to do differently next time. Count your blessings where you are, and surround yourself with a strong and warm support system. Celebrate God’s faithfulness and love for you. Ask and allow Him to heal your memories and your heart, to erase the negative recordings that threaten to play over and over in your head about your failings and mistakes, and to help you learn from the past and reposition yourself for a successful future. Cling to the lessons not the old emotions.

Walk with God and be open to what He’ll bring into your life. He never allows something to be taken away without replacing it with something better. He is able and willing to do that, and He wants to for you.
