Divorce is not a Dirty Word

Week 2 Day 5

I am worn out from groaning; all night long 1 flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. Psalm 6:6

Have you cried all night yet? Have you pitched a fit? Well, most of us have, at one point or another during the early days of divorce awareness.

Even if divorce is something you thought about for a very long time ...tears come. The failure, the pain, and the wasted years may overwhelm you from time to time. It is good to know that you can cry. It is good to know that you can feel. God understands and feels each tear you cry. He understands the pain you feel and the sorrow over losing something you once thought held such promise.

Turn to God, not away from Him. He is not throwing rocks at you or preparing your punishment. God knows that there is enough punishment just living through the aftermath of a divorce. He understands that some people will turn their backs on you. He has felt this before Himself. You are not alone. You may feel alone, but nothing in the Christian walk says we are to base any and everything on feeling. We are to base our Christian walk on faith in His grace.

Go ahead and cry, but don't despair. God hears those cries and He hears your prayers. Your feelings will one day catch up with your knowledge and you will again feel whole. Trust Him for this day, this hour, this moment. He is there.
