Divorce is painful whether it was sprung on you or you initiated it. It’s a profound loss that you have to take time to grieve. Life does not wait for you to get yourself together. You still have work and other responsibilities. There are days that you will not want to get out of bed, but I am here to encourage you that the sun will come out. It doesn’t matter how traumatic the whole experience is and how bad your marriage got, you will get through this and you will be fine again. You are so much stronger than you know. Keep your little hand in God’s big hand and with time you will heal.
This is your time to be free, time to connect with God and yourself. You can live life on your own terms. It’t time to make yourself the best you possible. Look to God to fill that void, you are enough. The devil will deceive you into believing that you are not good enough, especially if you were left for someone else. Don’t allow such filth to permeate your beautiful mind. Yes you are beautiful enough, you are sexy enough, you are good enough. You are enough just as you are, with all your imperfections. Close that chapter in your life and start a new one. It’s going to be ok.
I know the tears are close and often times you cry yourself to sleep. God sees your tears and He cares. Your heart is broken into tiny pieces and you wonder if it will ever be possible to heal it, believe me you will heal. You will thrive and you will be better than you were ever before. Focus on healing, loving yourself, being fit and healthy, doing the things you love, spending time with people who care about your well being and most importantly cultivating a closer relationship with God. You have nothing to fear, you are strong and beautiful and you will flourish. Life is beautiful, do your best to seize the day everyday. Do not allow this experience to make you bitter. Be the loving and forgiving person free of resentment that you are. Put your trust in God and believe in yourself. Today I close the door to the past, open the door to the future, take a deep breath, step on through and start a new chapter in my life.
