A Word On Divorce

This morning I read a commentary that likened divorce to abortion.  A tough illustration to grasp.  God created marriage between a husband and a wife.  Regardless of the circumstances, He is the orchestrator of your marriage and to end it, is to end something He created.  Many marriages, like abortion, prematurely end the opportunity to see what God could do with a life or relationship committed to Him. 

Many in our world today spend countless hours trying to justify their own desires or comfort over the will of God.  We miss the fact that our troubles and tribulations are often designed to both draw us closer to God, and to allow us to witness and participate in, the miracle that He can provide us when we have nowhere else to turn.

As a product of divorce, and a witness of it each and every week, I have been guilty of minimizing this destruction of God's creation.  I very much understand why people struggle in relationships and why they desire something better and more fulfilling for their lives.  But our ultimate peace and prosperity will not come from a separation from God and His Will, it will come as its cost.

I pray that if you or a loved one is considering ending your marriage that you would allow God to show you another way.  I pray that through this challenge God will reveal Himself and call you closer to Him.  I pray also that those married today will fully and richly appreciate that the person they married, is the person God designed for them (warts and all).  God does not create mistakes, and your marriage is not and will never be a mistake.
