Divorce is not a Dirty Word

Week Four Day Three

I pray also that you will have greater understanding in your heart so you will know the hope to which he has called us and that you will know how rich and glorious are the blessings God has promised his holy people. Ephesians 1:18

As we begin to face our pain and recognize where we are in life we develop a deeper and better understanding of human nature and God. One of the greatest gifts God gave us was when He became a human through the birth of Jesus Christ. The second is giving us the personality we have, or the nature of who we are. However, it is our job to discover that through His hope.

When Jesus walked and talked with created beings and began to experience their emotional pain up close, I believe with all my heart that even God developed a greater understanding of our dilemma. Understanding only comes when we choose to wait on God to come and heal us. When we run around trying to find something to fill the void left in our lives through divorce, we only add to our pain.

God has called us to hope. He wants us to trust His heart for our every need. Don't get me wrong, He wants us to take responsibility for ourselves, while at the same time leading on His understanding of the situations.

As we begin to take responsibility for ourselves, God opens us up to the blessings He has prepared for us. One of my favorite sayings is "What we are is God's gift to us, what we become is our gift to God." As we give Him our anger, our hurts, and our struggles, He begins recreating us from the inside out and the blessing of joy completes us.

Don't get hung up on the "holy people" thing. In God's eyes we are "holy" because we are covered with the blood of Christ. If you have been severely wounded God knows and understands. He knows your thoughts before you think them, so He understands your situation. Sooooooo, turn to Him for guidance there is hope in Him.
