Sometimes things just happen. Sometimes you can fix the damage. Sometimes there is a death. Sometimes you walk away praising God that He protected you.
Today I heard a message from my pastor that wrecked me, in a good way. It opened my eyes to things from my past that has caused pain and issues in my past relationships. I can honestly say God protected me in ways I can only see now, many years later. In other ways, He brought up issues in my recent past and my present that I still need to deal with moving forward.
How do you handle the ‘wrecks’ of life? If you are reading this blog, chances are it is the wreck of divorce or separation that has brought you here. How are you handling it?
Are you sitting in the wreck, awake but in severe need of rescue? Are you in pain and needing rehabilitation? Are you recovering, but scared of what the future holds or if you ever want to get back in another vehicle (relationship)? Wherever you are, it is ok. God is with you, He loves you, and He wants to help you.
I wonder sometimes how many of you would want me to tell you to do more, give you more specific advice, and provide more direction. I feel at times I need to do a better job of that, and I will. My plan is to post more detailed encouragements and helps in the future.
I do believe that God wants to tell you Himself, in the perfect way that only He can do. You will NEVER get any advice from any human being that is greater than the wisdom God can give. I don’t care how many initials are after the person’s name, how many degrees and awards they have, or how high their IQ/EQ shows up on a test.
Job 12:13 (NLT) “But true wisdom and power are found in God; counsel and understanding are his.”
I am always humbled by how many people I have been able to help over the years through leading marriage and divorce groups, providing Divorce to Healing Reading Plans on the YouVersion Bible app, and private discussions with people to help them out and on from the wrecks in their lives. And that is why I feel wrecked now.
I realized today that I need to double, triple, and infinitely double down on what God has called me to do, which is to help those that need help at one of the toughest times in their life. I will and I must because like you, God is calling me out of the wreck. He is calling us all to move closer to Him and into what He has for us.
I am so looking forward to our futures together. Take a few minutes and ask God where you are in the process of healing. Ask Him what the next steps need to be. Move into what He has for you, even if at this moment is to get over the shock of the wreck, unbuckle your seat belt, and survey the damage.
How can I help you in this process? Feel free to leave me a comment and I will do my best to respond in person as soon as I can.
PRAYER: Father God, may we all reach towards your helping and healing hands in this time of wreckage and damage. We give you our lives and ask that you lead us today into the next step of the plan you have for us.
