I am a child of divorce. Average statistics claim that 50% of marriages end in divorce. My life and the lives of many of my friends verifies this devastating statistic. In our society, “I do” often means “I did” instead of “We always do.” It is heartbreaking. 

The heartbreaking reality of divorce truly did break my heart as a child and young adult. Drugs and alcohol reeked havoc on my family and tore it limb from limb. My heart ached as God’s picture for always and forever was ripped in two. 

I heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. -Psalm 147:3

God whispered quietly to my soul and began healing my brokenness. 

Precious sister in Christ. Broken child of divorce. God does not want you to bury your hurt. He wants to carry your burden for you. He wants to be your ever present, loving Father. He wants to teach you to forgive. He wants to teach you to trust. Through your relationship with Himself, He wants to restore your picture of marriage. It is a covenant that cannot be broken, because it’s foundation is Christ – the Immovable Rock. 

Unburying the heartbreak is not easy; I know from experience…but allowing God to break those chains brings freedom. 

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. -2 Corinthians 3:17
