must start and examine what the Bible says about marriage, in Genesis 2:24,
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united
to his wife, and they will become one flesh. "
what exactly happens when you marry. You become one flesh. When you
are divorce you have a literal tearing of your soul, it leaves such damage
and so much pain. You are broken hearted, in the Bible the greek word for
broken hearted is "suntribo" meaning break to pieces..., to tear
ones body and shatter ones strength. Because you are torn so deeply within
your soul it takes God your Father to repair the brokenness. This takes
much time for the process to be complete. Many times we look to other relationships
to find comfort only to find that it does not work either. It is because
you are not healed and take all that baggage to anther relationship.
You must first allow God to heal, restore to you, who you really are. This
can take months and most times years. Sure for awhile the new relationship
takes away the pain much like Novocain but once it wears off, back comes
the hurt and most often it is worse than before.
The way to begin the healing process is to focus on a relationship
with God. He is our Healer our friend in need. Secondly we suggest a support
group. A Ministry called DivorceCare
has videos and material to start support groups. There are many started
all over the country, in local churches. Check out their web site to see
if they have a group near you.
We at Turtledove Ministries conduct a couple groups each week in Hillsborough
NC. We are praying if it is the Lord's will to conduct Saturday seminars
to other churches to help people of divorce to begin the healing process
and to recruit others to continue an on going support group. Talk with
you pastor and contact us if you think this would be something needed at
your church. Then email us we will be glad to share the DivorceCare material
