Here is a sample of what I am doing for the upcoming devotional. I am trying to keep them short enough to fit on one page so that I can also release this as a devotional in book form in the future, if it makes sense and people are interested.
I would LOVE it if you would give me your comments and thoughts. Feel free to share it with others too so that I can get more people’s take on it.
As always, thanks to all of you & be blessed!!
Divorce to Healing: Day 1
Words will never be able to describe how you are feeling. What just happened? How? When? WHY?
When you first hear those words “I want a divorce” or are blind-sided by papers served to you when you least expect it, no words do it justice. Feelings that you have never experienced before are flooding over you to the point of,… you can’t even get the words out because,… WHAT?…
At this time, you are filled with every emotion and a million thoughts that race through your mind. It is a time when you need to just stop and gather yourself. Even though you may just want to do something crazy and ask for forgiveness later, don’t do it!! Just stop, drop (to your knees), and roll (to the foot of the cross)!!
No advice at this moment will do you any good unless you decide to take time to realize that there are things going on that you cannot control.
11 “For I know the plans I have for you,’’ says the Lord. ”They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Right now, the only one who understands what you are feeling and going through, is God. He is the only one who can give you peace for your today and your future.
God, I have no idea what is going on, but I choose to trust You. I need You now to show me the way. Please bring forth Your true Word, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
This idea works well for me. It’s short, concise and backed up with scripture.
I appreciate that, Sherry. I know it is just a drop in the bucket, but eventually a bunch of drops will fill the bucket.
