Coping with Divorce

As a Christian I never thought that divorce would be an issue in my life. I married older, thought I was mature, had a good relationship with God and yet after 4 years of marriage I was among the 50 percent of marriages that end in divorce.

There are certain things in life that make a person re-evaluate their lives and in my book divorce is one of them. I developed as a way for me to work through my thoughts, fears, insecurities, questions, anger and try understand what life after divorce looked like. Coping with divorce as a Christian was quite difficult; I was angry at my ex-spouse, myself, the world and God. I don’t think I prayed for forgiveness or pleaded for a miracle as much in my life ad I did then.

It started out as a dark and hopeless time but one day I realized that God was touching my heart in a way that I never experienced before. Even though my marriage was over my relationship with God entered a new dimension I never knew existed. I found hope, healing, love, forgiveness, relationship, understanding and the will to experience God’s daily blessings.

I am not going to tell you that coping with divorce is easy; in fact I pray I never have to go through it again. However, if you are going through a divorce I encourage you to not give up, to keep looking up and know, in time, you will feel normal and be happy again!
