Thoughts on my separation, my divorce, and my life as I read through the Bible. The Beginning The Journey The Joy.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep. And God said "Let there be light" and he saw that it was good." My partial paraphrase of Genesis 1
The Beginning The Journey The Joy
Yes, God created the heavens and the earth, but in the beginning it was all darkness. Reading this scripture made me realize my new journey, my new beginning into divorce, was plagued with darkness. There was very little light. The Journey..
After God decided he needed more then darkness he started to change things for the better. He created light, the sea, the stars, the creatures and of course us. He saw that it was good. He had to work to make the good happen. Many of us who are involved in a life changing event such as divorce feel we are surrounded by darkness and we can't see any light. We have to give our situation to God and learn to live a new life. In the early days that may involve attorneys and private investigators. It may mean we have to learn new skills such as paying bills, filing taxes and many other things we have never had to do on our own. To learn to live life as me rather then we. I believe we can do it with God's help, the help of our family that decided to stay in our lives, and the support and love of our friends. The Joy...
I believe we can find joy in difficult times. We can find joy in adventures, in the beauty of God's creation, in family and friends. I know it is nearly impossible in the beginning but it gets easier as time goes by. This week I found joy. How about you?
