Q. Does getting a divorce mean that I have no faith in God?
A. No, absolutely not! Getting a divorce does not diminish your faith or your love for the lord. A divorce could be life saving and the action need for your overall wellness. Your sanity, physical, emotional health could be in jeopardy by staying in a toxic relationship— and your children’s wellness.
Actually, it takes mammoth FAITH to say, “I love myself and my children and actually understand how God loves us and cares about us." It takes mammoth faith to say, "I am removing myself from this toxic relationship. Faith causes you to make difficult decision that others may not approve of but it is best for your situation. Your journey is your journey, and does not require for others to understand your process. Your FAITH in the Lord requires you to take care of yourself mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and relationally and divorce is the right course of action. Using your FAITH to make tough decisions requires mammoth FAITH to take action.
