Two weeks ago, I shared a post where 7 women told their personal testimonies about how God saved their marriages from divorce. Their stories were real and raw. So, this week, I wanted to share more hope with you no matter where your marriage is… Sometimes, God revives a marriage before it ends and sometimes God revives our relationship with Him when our marriage has ended. These 5 Christian bloggers share their story: How God Helped Me Cope with My Divorce.
Divorcing and Afraid?
Are you afraid of what life will look like without him? Or maybe you’re worried about forgiveness because you are “letting man separate” your union. Maybe both.
I will be honest with you, I am writing to you as a friend, not as a woman who has walked through a divorce herself, but as a friend of someone who has. Through the years, I have had friends come close to divorce, live in separation and divorce.
None of the roads are smooth or easy.
But God can help you cope with divorce
When my friend shared with me that she thought her husband was ready to walk away, I was shocked. How could this be? She was a Christian. How could God let her feel this pain? Why won’t God save this marriage? She has been praying…
I didn’t know what to do or what to say to her, so I went to church. Just as God designed, I had a conversation with a gal there who had been divorced (which I didn’t even realize until we began speaking).
I shared that I was making my friend come over later that day and that I needed Bible verses for her.

Equip yourself with his word for the new road ahead
My friend from church shared how she had prayed over her marriage for years and that her husband was not a believer and was armed with papers and ready to file. So, she continued to pray. Then, God had her read this verse and gave her peace as she let him go.
1 Corinthians 7:12-16 WEB, you can find read that here.
So, that evening when my friend came over and shared her worries about letting God down, I shared what happened at church that day… I read the Bible verses to her. I didn’t have any other great advice, but I did have the Word of God.
My friend shared with me later that the verses gave her peace in her anxiety and grief.
How is God’s plan for my life a divorce?
We know from the Bible that divorce isn’t God’s plan, but it happens. Just as His plan wasn’t for us to fall into the trap of sin, but we did.
So now what? How does one hold fast to the Lord while weathering a divorce?
These 5 Christian bloggers share their personal testimonies and how God helped them cope with their divorce.
