i recently went thru a painful divorce from a 27 year marriage. i wish i could say i forgave instantly, but i couldn’t and i had to learn to guard my heart and not let it get hardened and bitter. i could only forgive when i gave my situation over to The Lord. He steps in when we are not able. forgiveness is the most powerful tool we can use in life. as soon as i was able to forgive, my joy was restored. divorce is not God’s plan for any marriage, but it takes “two to tango”. unfortunately in our society today, 50% of the time the inevitable happens. thankfully God is there to pick us up and restore our lives.
now i can look back and see how God carried me through, healed my heart, and restored my joy. i am excited about my future and the women who will be helped through hammeredheart.org. i thank God from my previous heart of stone, to now my heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.”
my cup runneth over,
i always want to say “yes” to what God has for me
