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.
God gave me a very specific word when I was starting my healing process. It has stuck with me all these years and I have shared it with so many people. It is what allowed me to get up off the floor.
“Jesus and I are movin’ on!!
To me that day, it gave me the assurance that God was with me and for me in this time. It hurt so bad, but just those six words have carried me through so many rough spots.
The greatest revelation to me in those words were that no matter what, I was going to be ok. God is going to go forth with me as I moved forward.
It spoke to action. It spoke to His love for me. It spoke of a future.
Do you see yourself stuck right now? Do you question whether there is something more waiting for you to move towards?
I know first hand that God can restore you to a greater life. I have experienced the depth of God’s love like never before by trusting in Him to carry me through my hard times.
There is always hope when you look to Jesus. There is always a God who wants to lift you up and hold your hand as He walks with you.
It also spoke to moving, or a changing of location. Of course, people end up moving out of their home and to a new location during divorce. It is more than that. It is talking about a change of scenery, a new outlook, and a new way of looking at things.
This is the time you need to move on from destructive thoughts and behaviors. It is the time to move past accusations, pain, and fear.. It is time to move into a greater relationship with God and to move into all He still has for you.
Don’t waste your life not healing by just existing. Get movin’!!
