Dear, beautiful mama!
I don’t have the answers. I wish I knew…maybe I could tell you why it happened. But I don’t know. I know you ask, why? I know you wonder and wonder until you get a pounding headache and you can wonder no more. I know you would like some answers.
You think maybe if you knew why you would feel better. I don’t know. But God knows.
God sees you in your divorce.
He knows exactly where you are and He has a plan for your life.
I know it doesn’t feel like that right now. I’ve been there, in the same place. I know how you feel. But since when did your feelings have the final say? Only God has the final say. And even now, in the midst of this storm, in this place that seems so dark, and you cannot see the way out, God sees you!
You hear me, mama? God sees you!
God sees you. He sees your tears. He hears your cries. He knows how you worry about your kids…How will they cope with the fact that their dad doesn’t come home anymore? How will you cope with them by yourself? How???
God knows! And God will help you as you lean on Him.
“Don’t panic. I’m with you. There is no need to fear, for I am your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you” Isaiah 61:10 (The message bible)
This may have taken you by surprise, but it didn’t take you heavenly papa by surprise! He saw this coming and He has a plan!
Rest in His love. Find ways to connect with God and stay there. Talk to Him often and soak in the rich promises in His word, His love letter to you and me. Let His love fill and seal all your broken places. Let His whispers of affirmation replace the lies that have wormed their way into your soul.
“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life” Isaiah 43:4
(New International Version Bible)
This is the truth!
