Divorce to Healing: Day 8




Have you ever had a day where you even wondered why this or that causes you to just lose it? Why can’t a 11 year old daughter remember to grab her lunchbox when she gets out of the car making me drive back to school and interrupt my day causing……..?

Yes, things happen. When it comes to marriage and divorce, we usually have more questions than answers. So much happens that we seem to live in a state of ongoing heartache. You will never get all of your questions answered, so let’s talk.

Have you ever climbed to a very high point, like to a mountain top or a lookout you saw on vacation? It is amazing. You can see in all directions until you see the curve in the earth. It makes all of the things you left below seem so small.

Just like all of our questions, pains, emotions, and stress, a different perspective allows you to refocus on what really is important in life. It gives you a chance to see things from a different angle and give you a new perspective.

Does it mean that everything down below changes? Not at all. It just looks different. Does it mean that anything changes with your issues? No, but how you look at them does. It allows you to see other ways to address them.

28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Allowing others to speak life into you and letting God’s Word give you a different set of ‘eyes’ allows you to see things about yourself that will make you stronger and bring forth a change in your approach to your healing.


God, help me to see my struggles and hurdles through Your eyes and give me a heart willing to find Your perspective in all areas of my life, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Divorce to Healing: Day 7




People who are naturally loners are probably wondering what the problem is, yet we all need belonging and community to regulate our emotions and feelings.

God created us to be a part of each other’s lives. He created us for community and to give and receive love through those around us. As great as Adam was, he was not complete until Eve showed up.

Living lonely is hard. It is really hard. It hurts and causes us to rethink our motives. It drives us to do things out of desperation. It also is very misunderstood.

Being lonely and being alone are two TOTALLY different things. Being alone means nobody is with you. Being lonely is not being connected to anyone. How many times have you been in a room full of people, but feel totally alone? That is loneliness, not aloneness.

The struggle of loneliness is to learn to get and stay connected to people, especially those that speak life and wisdom to you. Beat loneliness one phone call and one get together at a time. Make time for others to give you encouragement and invest time into helping you battle loneliness.

6  Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Deut. 31:6

You are never alone. God is always with you!! If you need to pump yourself up anytime, repeat what God gave me at my lowest time – “Jesus and I are movin’ on!!” You can’t go anywhere that God is not already there. He has been waiting.


God, help me to know more each day how wonderful it is to always have you by my side and others to come along side when they do, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
