Christians & Divorce
For me, divorce was NEVER EVER an option I even considered. My parents had been married for 30+ years and so had the parents of my husband. Nevertheless, even with those great family stats in our favor, it happened!
But once it happened to me, I truly see what people mean when they say “unless you’ve walked in my shoes, don’t judge me” and surely, don’t try to tell me how I should feel, act, react, not react etc …
Dr. Myles Munro, in his book, Single, Married, Separated, Divorced (which I will argue is the BEST book out there on the subject) likens divorce in many ways to experiencing the death of a spouse. However, he goes on to explain, that divorce is something God didn’t necessarily give us mechanisms to handle, since IT IS NOT, a part of His ordained will.
Then the more I began to unexpectedly interact with those in similar situations, the more I realized, how ill-equipped the body of Christ is when it comes to really nurturing Christians through divorce. Not to mention, when you really believe God has told you to STAND in FAITH for restoration and reconciliation or to just chill.
So, that’s why I started this blog. I want to provide a safe haven, where those in similar situations can see that they’re not alone and where others can come and really see, get and understand The Truth About Christians & Divorce. Check back daily as you’ll find daily posts by me and other guests too.
