This is the final week in my Write 31 Days Series for women going through separation and divorce. Every day in October I have posted a verse or two of scripture and a short reflection on Instagram. On Saturdays I post the full week here for those who aren’t into Instagram (cause I hear these people do exist). The series introduction and a list of posts can be found here.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
As I prepare to close out this #write31days series for women going through separation or divorce, I have been asking myself what I hope you take away from this month. I think this verse sums it up. There is Hope and He is faithful. Keep holding on.
Also, did you notice the “we” in this verse? We profess. There is a “we.” You are not alone. Sometimes, especially in the Church, it can feel like you are the only one to ever be abandoned or the only one to ever not be able to put it all back together, but that is not true. You are not alone.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
This verse is one of my favorites to repeat to myself when life feels heavy. There is something so comforting about knowing that even if my flesh and heart fail, He’s got this. He’s got this Monday, or this week, or this season of life.
The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.
Thank you for walking through this series with me this month. These verses are my prayer for you as you continue on your journey. Remember that you don’t walk alone. The Creator of heaven and earth loved you so much that He gave His life to be with you.
I hope you’ll come back and visit me here and on the blog. My top goal in life is raising my children to love and serve and Jesus, but these goals follow as a close second and third:
#1- To let women going through divorce in the church know that they are not alone.
#2 – To help the church understand how they can best love and serve these women who are suffering. Unfortunately, we can be quick to shoot the wounded and I’m not sure we even realize it.
