As someone who has been through a divorce, the experience will always be a part of you. Time and God’s grace will heal the wounds, make forgiveness possible and allow the painful memories to fade away. You will always be affected by what happened to you, but it doesn’t define who you are.
Sometimes the most difficult part of rebuilding your life after the loss of your marriage is realizing this terribly important fact. You were created to be an important person in this world with a mission to fulfill given to you by God that no one else can fulfill. Despite your divorce and all the other hurts in your life, you still have things you’ve got to do and a purpose to fulfill so don’t spend too much time dwelling on what’s happened.
You always need to learn from the past and incorporate those lessons into everyday life but as you stand up, dust yourself off and look to the future, know that God has many good things waiting for you. You are doing exactly what He wants you to do.
As they were going along the road, someone said to Him, “I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” And He said to another, “ Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.”But He said to him, “Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God.” Another also said, “I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say good-bye to those at home.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, after putting his hand to the plow and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9: 57-62).
