Christians and Divorce

You know God means for marriage to last forever.  You know your marriage has fallen short of God’s perfect plan. Yet, here you are looking your own divorce square in the face. It’s a gut wrenching experience. Worse yet, you may be getting grief from fellow Christians who don’t understand what you’re going through at all.

Here are three things I want to be sure you know:

  • God still loves you!
  • Your identity is in Christ not your marital status.
  • God still offers you salvation and hope.

Building your relationship with God is fundamental to taking charge of your life again. Choosing to seek God and yield to him will empower you to heal. You won’t be trying to do it on your own strength.

Talk with God about what you’re dealing with.  Lean into Him and you will get through this and find the victorious life he has planned for you.

God bless you!

    I’m so glad to see people sharing this message because getting divorced as a Christian is ROUGH. Even people who try to help just do one of two things look at you with pity or tell you “Some things are worth fighting for.” That’s true and I fought hard for 6 years to save my marriage but in the end, there were not two committed people and I had to walk away for myself and my children. Moreover, I have a deeper more committed relationship with God than I ever did because I can focus on him and my children and not running around like a crazy person trying to fix things for another crazy person. Anyways… I’m just really happy to see you spreading this message. I just wrote my first BIG post on this topic on my blog because I think it is so important.

      Thank you Brad for your comment. I understand your frustration. Six years is a long time to fight to save your marriage. I’m so glad you now have a deeper more committed relationship with God. That’s awesome!

      Mary, I’m so sorry you are in this situation. It’s very hard if you’re the only one fighting for your marriage. Have you tried counseling?
