We have so many things that we are responsible for from kids and family to work and relationships. It can really feel daunting, especially when you struggling with divorce and all that entails.
It takes a lot of wisdom to know what is truly important, what can wait, and what really matters in the long term. It takes more than what we have in our feeble minds to figure this all out. Help is on the way.
If you are not an organized person, get organized. Use a calendar and write things down, especially your daily to-do lists. It will help you keep track and provide direction on what to get done. You would be amazed how scatter-brained you will feel during a time of tragedy, which is exactly what divorce is.
Make time to invest in your own well-being like quiet time, devotion, and stress relief. Take time to see the value in your kids, your job, and your relationships.
Don’t use these things to isolate yourself from people or God, but use them to grow closer to Him and to gain the strength you need to continue on with life.
Now, handle your matters in a way that is responsible. Take the high road. Give of yourself to others, even though you may not have strength to do it. Be a light and a rock for those that desperately need you, because you matter to them.
4 Arise! For this matter is your responsibility, but we will be with you; be courageous and act.” Ezra 10:4
You have so many responsibilities, and it is a good thing. You have been trusted with so many things like being a mom or dad, a friend, and a blessing to others.
God, give me the strength and wisdom to live responsibly and in such a way that others will see how you have helped heal and lead me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
