When I look back on my life, I see Jesus protecting me. When I went through my divorce, it was no exception. Jesus was there, holding my hand, keeping me going. I remember how difficult it was to pick up the pieces of a marriage that was falling apart.
Divorce these days is very common. Through sickness and in health, is not taken seriously anymore. If you are not happy in your marriage, then you get divorced and find someone that will make you happy. It’s easy as 123.
I remember the emotional, mental, and even spiritual toll it took on me when I went through my divorce. God designed us to stay faithful, true, and pure in marriage. Divorce was not part of God’s original plan for us.
As I was going through the motions of separation. Feeling the hurt and rejection were probably the most difficult. Even though I felt the suffering, Jesus was with me, comforting me through the tidal waves of emotions I was feeling.
At that time, I wasn’t a committed Christian like I am now. But it got to a point during the separation that God showed up to help me through and reassure me.
Thank God He was with me. Jesus never left my side.
Almost 11 years later, I can honestly say I am in a good place. But this could only be possible because the Holy Spirit directed my steps and never gave up on me.
As the Apostle Paul said in (2 Corinthians 12:10) “For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
I now realise, after much reflection, that the experience of going through a divorce has made me who I am today in Christ. See, God works for the good for those who love him.
Who knows, maybe God has a plan for me to remarry! Whether I remarry or not, as long as I stay close to Him and I am in His will, I’m happy.
