Overcoming Divorce or Separation
C. & J. Love, MSM
Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
We are writing these words because we desire to provide help, hope, and healing to those that are dealing with divorce or separation. For most people, going through a divorce or a separation is a terrible ordeal. Sometimes the process can be so painful. It can seem as if there can be no end to this suffering. But we are here to tell you that brighter days are ahead, just go through the process.
Help. Nobody goes into a marriage or a relationship expecting it to end in shambles. But, once we find ourselves here, we have a decision to make. We are encouraging you to act. Take control of your future. We implore you to not let this incident define who you are; remember, there are so many more layers to you. How do I find the help that I need?
Find a safe place to talk.
Connect with a trustworthy person or group (i.e. pastor, a professional counselor, a trusted friend, or a mentor)
Hope. There is hope for the future. It may not seem like it right now, but things will get better. We must be willing to go through the process. But first we must:
Change the “record” playing in our head that tells us that all is lost, despair is imminent, and our efforts are futile.
Change the narrative to say, “I will come out of this situation a better person.”
Proven principle: first I say it and then I do it.
The Bible declares in the Mark 11:24, you shall have what you say. Therefore, we believe that if you can verbalize the change then you can execute the change.
Healing. Once we identify a safe place to talk, verbalize any changes that need to take place, then the healing can begin. When something unexpected happens in our life, we all have the same question (why) and we are all looking for the answer to our question. Sometimes we find the answer, but sometimes we do not. Do not let this “bump in the road” stop our healing.
Lastly, we realize that the road towards help, hope and healing is not easy, “…but with God, all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26b).
