Divorce is not a Dirty Word

Week 2 Day 7

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

God does not want to hurt us in any way, shape, form, or fashion. He is not sitting on His throne thinking up ways to knock us down. We do that ourselves.

The plans God has for us are for good. He even promises in Romans 8:28 that He will turn the bad things that happen in our lives to good when we are living according to His plan and purpose for us. You may have difficulty right now understanding exactly what His purpose is for your life because everything is confusing for you.

Right now, the main purpose He has is for you to grow through your divorce. Deal with the pain you are experiencing. Go ahead and get in touch with your feelings, and comfort yourself with the fact that your Heavenly Father - Abba - Daddy - loves you. He hates what you are going through, but He loves you.

As you begin to wrap yourself in His loving embrace, you will see that your future is whatever you choose to make of it. You can choose to walk in His path, or you can choose to be angry. Keep your eyes focused on Jesus and He will walk with you through the stormy days, and skip with you through the days of sunshine and laughter.
