A God of Second Chances
Leah and I came from similar backgrounds of blue-collar families with parents married until cancer took her dad, and my mom way too soon in their lives. The examples we both grew up with were that your folks didn’t divorce – Ever!
Yet, we found ourselves divorced. Although our individual circumstances were very different, the pain of failure, guilt and loss were intense. We’ve prayed and sought for guidance in understanding why.
It’s along this journey that we’ve met so many others in similar situations. One of the common elements we’ve discovered is that no matter how long ago the divorce occurred, the pain is always just below the surface.
Do I Deserve A Second Chance?
What we’ve also discovered and have rejoiced in is our God is a mighty and forgiving God. Old Testament scripture regarding marriage and divorce had us cringing at the stark reality of the period.
God forgives sin and restores His children. That includes blessing the opportunity for believers to reclaim their hearts, heal their wounds and discover new love that leads to making your next marriage your last.
We’ve been called to this outreach. There are way too many people reeling from the sting of relational failure and seeking answers in a world that often holds no compassion for the divorced. We totally relate!
Faithful.Live is what God placed on our hearts. It’s a joy to see Him making the creation possible. God has also led other believers to help us. They will share the yoke with diverse experiences of marriage, divorce, recovery, and enjoying the blessings of holy matrimony.
