Surviving Divorce
(From Tragedy to Triumph)

There are events that come into our lives which we are totally oblivious to until it
Slaps us in the face. Never coming in the form of a billboard advertising adversity
But rather the calamities of life as we know them have a peculiar way of making their
Way into our lives. Divorce is just one of life’s unfortunate tragedies.

The divorce rate among unbelievers is 50% whereas the percentage rate for church members is
42%. No wonder divorce is at an all- time high. For whatever reason a couple gives for divorcing
The Bible is still adamant in its views. The Biblical reasons to dissolve “a union of two” is still
Adultery and abandonment, no matter how much society would like to change God’s Word.

Is there life after divorce? Yes there is. I know because I have been through the tribulations
Of divorce and a tragedy can result in triumph, but only if you are willing to give it to God.
He is able and willing to bring beauty from ashes, if we really allow him to.

I have often heard that sometimes divorce is the best solution for someone’s life.
I use to think that was an odd statement to make especially if the person making it was not
Walking in my shoes, even though my son and I had to relocate to another state and make a
New life I still came to realize it was for the best.

I wouldn’t have changed anything. God knew what he was doing and he knew the plan he
Had for us, “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 a hope and a future” Jeremiah 29: 11. Divorce is an ugly word and by
No means do I condone it. God hates divorce and if there is a way to repair a marriage I am all
For it but on the other hand if a marriage is irrevocably broken because a spouse chooses
To go his or her way, then God will not intervene. Why? Because we have free wills.
My marriage ended because my spouse no longer wanted to be married to a Christian
Wife, hence a divorce was inevitable because of free will.

Those of you who are in the midst of a divorce or previously divorced I want you to know
That God is with you and he will never abandon you. Man will leave, but God never leaves.
He promises to be the husband to the widow and the father to the fatherless. I know that
Rings true because he has proven his Word time and again. He is the God who never fails.









If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
