Blogging on Divorce and Blended Families
God hates divorce...but He doesn't hate you...even if you have walked through a divorce.
God is a God of second chances...if we sincerely ask Him for that. This is clear to us in the clear message to us in the Word of God - the Bible.
We believe WHY God hates divorce is because He knows all things. He knows the long term impacts and outcomes. God knows the 'ripple effect' that divorce will have on the lives - men and women and children and grandchildren - of those who've gone through it.
He knows the effect on the family, the children and the legacy of divorce. Blended Families (step-families) are one of the most dynamic relationship arenas in our world today. There are many people and families seeking encouragement, hope and insight.
We hope these weekly thoughts will be a blessing to blended families all across America. Those of us who have walked through divorce, many now in blended familes are not alone... there are close to 24 million blended families in our nation today.
Estimates say 2000 new blended families / remarriages take place each day in America. Close to 125 million citizens are directly touched by divorce and the remarriages that creates blended families.Lets all stay like that tree in PSALM ONE...
"He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers ....for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish."
Get yourself firmly planted, bear good fruit, don't wither .......... let HIM watch over YOU.
