Life consists of times of joy, success, growth and even hurt, failure, and blunders that stem from the many choices we make each day.
When I was divorced several years ago I can still remember the feelings of hopelessness and loss. At times the pain was overwhelming and I didn’t know how I was going to make it through the day. Yet, I did – by some miracle I made it and continued to make it.
When faced with adversity and hardship it is important to take a step back and see things for what they are. Look at the things that you can control and the things you can’t. Realize that there is an enemy out there whose goal is to destroy and devour. God created you, and me, with a purpose and the enemy is going to try and divert us from the will of God by going directly at us and the ones close to us. This isn’t an excuse for sinful behavior but it does allow us to have compassion for others and if needed ourselves. Don’t let the mistakes you made in the past or the hurt others have caused you deter you from what God truly has for you. Make it a point to forgive your ex and try to look at them as God would.
Take the next step and make the best choice you can today – the choice to heal! No longer living in the past of hurt and loss but set your sights on the future – God’s purpose for you. Healing is a process and can be pursued anytime by taking an honest look at yourself and confessing your sin to God while giving yourself over to Him completely.
