And I just want people to pray for me and my mental health. Although we are still married, we will be divorced by the end of this year. Looking back at my actions in hindsight I really do believe that it is down to me having a self-destructive personality but regardless; I cannot blame any of what has happened in my life on anything other than the horrible choices I made when confronted with them. I was tempted and I chose to take the fork in the road that led me to being unfaithful to my wife of eight years. Unfaithful to the mother of my children, unfaithful to my children, and to my extended family.
Dealing with divorced parents can be a difficult time for many emotional high and low feelings. These healing prayers for divorced parents will ensure the mending of hearts and strength are brought to each persons restoration. Father, Praise You for Your faithfulness. We are often unable to remain committed to the ideals of our hearts on this earth, but You are able to uphold justice and righteousness throughout time.
In my opinion, only God can truly answer this question. Spouses are encouraged to spend extended time in the Word and obedience to it, as well as extended times of prayer and fasting, and seeking godly counsel. All destructive relationships and toxic counsel must be severed as you seek to answer this question. Many great Bible teachers are divided on this issue. Some believe that re-marriage to another is never allowed unless one of the spouses dies, but others suggest that it is permissible when adultery and abandonment occur.
Divorce is a big deal for anyone — perhaps particularly for a Christian. This is just one perspective on how one person dealt with 'getting divorced' by trying to assimilate it into the ongoing journey of faith and God's work in us. The first emotions and steps can be the most difficult as you come to realise the path ahead is not the one you signed up for at the altar.
