Today continues a series of 7 daily posts that will allow you to Survive and Thrive in your divorce recovery process. It will be available on the YouVersion Bible App eventually, but I wanted to share it with all of you first. May it be the blessing I pray it needs to be for you.
When struggling with divorce and all it entails (kids, loss, emotions, etc…), I believe you can boil all of what we need down to two things; peace and wisdom.
Our emotions want to get the best of us. Our feelings and people betray us. Our needs change on almost a daily, or even an hourly basis. We need peace.
There is something about the ocean. I have never felt more peace and tranquility than just 5 minutes with Jesus on the beach. It seems to help calm me and remind me how big this world and life really is. My problems may be huge to me, but small to this world.
As I spend time at the beach, God speaks to me. He brings me a soothing feeling of peace. When I commune with God through His Word and with worship music on my iPhone, He allows my soul to rest and recharge. What gives you those kinds of experiences? Spend some time with God while He brings you the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Our minds race with concerns. Our souls cry out for answers. Our mind is confused. What we really need is wisdom.
Godly wisdom is so far superior. We only recognize it when you cannot ever understand how something so unbelievable happens. You say something like, “This has to be God”.
It is God adding His super to our natural. Supernatural.
The best way I can gain His true wisdom is by spending time every day in the Bible, doing devotions, listening to sermons, and building my relationship to Jesus through prayer.
Counselors, friends, family, and others can give you wisdom. Is it Godly wisdom? Does it contain the supernatural wisdom from the God who created you & knows you better that you know yourself?
Pray today that God give you His perfect peace and His perfect wisdom for all you are dealing with today and in the future. Let Him be your strength and guidance in these uncertain times.
Ask God for His perfect peace and wisdom. Ask, and you shall receive.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 4:13
33 for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.
5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
