I Am Sad Because Of Divorce

Going through a divorce after waiting 8 years of separation for husband to get priorities straight. Remained faithful to him and I raised our 2 children on my own while he had his freedom. I feel I have waited long enough but my heart is saddened for fear that I have let God down filing for divorce.

Most times our bad decisions,mistakes and errors come back to haunt us. We are not exempt because we are saved. God forgives but man does not,most times. Man is wicked and every evil we can imagine we are plagued with. I don't understand why you did not put the brakes on this man before 8 years went by. Try to put the pieces of your life back together and move on. With God all things are possible. You can,if you try.God bless you friend.

You have not let God down. You have done all you could have done and more. If your husband has not gotten himself straightened out yet than it is about time you had a life of your own. God does not expect you to suffer for so long because of someone else's sins. He created you to be loved and to have a life of fufillment and love. Why does he deserve freedom and you not?

My wife divorced me and would probably write a note similar to yours. I am very sad about my divorce also. I've appoligized and changed my ways but I feel unable to go forward in my life because of the loss and my pain. I'm sorry that you feel bad. I know that if you ask God for forgiveness, He is able to forgive. Look at all the times He accepted the Israelites back after the many times they fell away in Deuteronomy - 2 Samuel. It is just amazing how much he is willing to accept us back!

Dear Andra,
If that is your only wrong doing in life you must be a saint,I'm not saying your wrong,only that you seem to feel that way.
God will not condemn you ,you have suffered enough,be at peace and move on with your life.Kathy 3339 has told you to write to her,she is a fine person who has been through it and she is going to be alright.I will pray for you as I do for her.God bless you.

Dear Andra: Thanks--but better to say that God sees it all happening in His eternal NOW.

We experience reality one second at a time, one incident at a time.

But God sees reality as it really is.

I read a response that Lee wrote to this question and found it very interesting and would like to ask Lee some questions if he would contact me at Nancy4595 I would appreciate it. Thanks

Thank you Jack for your reply. I never really looked at it that way. God knows everything before it happens.

Divorce is always a sad occasion, and you have a right to grieve. But remember, there is NO condmenation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Did you ever see TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL? In it, a character said, "I'm so sorry I disappointed God." (similar to your own words) Reply, "Baby, you can't disappoint God [or let Him down] because you can't surprise Him."

Sister, I know this is very hard for you to face. I've gone down this road too and I know the exact pain you are feeling now. It took me two years to get over the fact that God does hate divorce, however, he LOVES the divorcee. You have done all you can, it's truly time to stand on God to rebuild your life and make you WHOLE again. Meditate on this scripture (1 Corinthians 7:15) It truly released me to know that God cares enough for us, that he wants us to dwell in peace. caroa9546 (id)

I would like for you to email me personally as I would like to recommend a book for you to read that set me free. Nancy4595

What God has joined together, the Bible says that we are not to break apart. Howbeit, just because a couple is married, does not necessarily mean that God has joined them together. You have waited long enough and it is time to move on with your life without that excess baggage. Peace!

The only true answer to your question is for you to pray earnestly about it and tell God how you're feeling (He already knows but He wants to hear it from you) and follow the path He puts you on. If you follow His chosen way for you, you can't go wrong and you have no reason to worry about what anyone else says or thinks about it.

1 Corinthians 7:15 But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so. A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances; God has called us to live in peace. (NIV)
---Auror3743 on 6/9/05

Thank you so very much for all your relpies. They were very encouraging.I just want Gods best for me and my boys and I want my joy back again. Want to love and be loved. I feel I have done all that I know how to do in this situation. I gave him over 8 years and several chances to reconcile but to no avail. I want to move forward in my life and in order to do that I have to make a decision to let go. It is not easy but I know God loves me and understands my decision and sees my hurt.

My Sister In Christ, The Spirit of God says to you this night; Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. I am the Lord thy God that heals, There is nothing now or ever that you can do to change my Love for you. For I know says the Lord, the thoughts and the plans I have for thee, I am the Lord thy God I see the end from the beginning. Fear not, my Daughter for I see thee, I feel your hurt and see your pain and I will perfect those things that concern you. I will never leave you never.

Hi Andra, I have been through this too. But my seperation lasted 4 years, 3 kids, same type fear. Get good counselling. Get good prayer support and time for yourself. I did everything in my power to put my marriage back together, but it takes two. Get the book "Love Must Be Tough" if you still feel there is some hope for restoration. Only you and God know if it's the right time to divorce. Write me to discuss more privately if you like. Kathy3339
