If you haven't read Ecclesiates lately, you really should. I have never been so tickled by Scripture! In a nutshell: Eat well, drink good wine, work hard, and have fun. I pity those who don't read God's Word. They're missing out BIG time!!!
So...this journey was a roller coaster, huh? Would love to hear your thoughts on how it progressed and how God spoke to you. My desire has been that through my openness and vulnerability, you would hear God speaking to your heart. Has that happened to you?
Back in April, I was seeing things in black and white. God's Word says He hates divorce. I thought that to please Him, I needed to save my marriage. I thought: Divorce is bad, marriage is good. Now that I have walked through this journey, I can see things from a different perspective. But I have zero regrets!! I followed my heart and sought God's direction through it all. The truth is, we really cannot say what we would do in someone else's situation. I'm sure a lot of people think I should have just kept my mouth shut and gotten a quick divorce. And I'm sure there are others who think I should have refused a divorce and continued to believe that God would heal my marriage. Either of those paths may be right for others, but not for me. I have learned the importance of listening and offering empathy. Everyone is on a different journey for God's purpose. It is so important to remember that God is sovereign and some of us have to beat our heads against a wall in order to clear out ourselves and make room for God!
