Divorce:
Out of all the emotional pain only pain from losing a loved one is worse than divorce.
It must be very hard to hear these words after you have given years to someone:
"I do not love you anymore, I want a divorce. There is someone else I love and I want to live with him/her instead"
Or the pain when you wake up from your twisted dream.:
"I divorced Sarah to marry Lisa and now I know it was a mistake. What did I do. God did not want this"

There is a lot of emotional stuff that one goes through when they are divorced.
* Resentment, regret and remorse
* Anger
* Rejection
* Bitterness towards yourself and everyone
* Depression
* Identity crisis
* Adverse effects on your children
* Impoverishment for both parties.

Someone wrote to me: "I felt like I was dying. Non of my friends or church members stood by my side. And I realized how it would be if I died. But I was still living. It felt as if I moved out of God's Grace and I had to fight hard to get it back"

Two Questions:
Do people that are happily married realize the privilege they have and do they realize what honour it is to receive from God.
Do we as married couples realize the pain that those who are divorcing are going through? No I don't think we do.

So let us not point fingers at others. Do not gossip about them . Show compassion. Watch carefully over your own marriage. Appreciate your marriage partner. God gave him/her to you!!!

Amen.
