Permitted, Not Ideal!

The scriptures cannot be broken. Divorce is not the original will of the Father for His children. The Lord desires for us to have unity of purpose, for only then can we really worship in spirit and in truth.

However, due to human errors and persistency of purpose, our forefathers were able to get permission from God’s general to divorce. Since then men have exercised this “right” to divorce women at will.

Many a time infidelity on the path of the woman is non existent and the man divorces still because “variety is the spice of life”.

If you find yourself here, the unspeakable, what you dread has happened, don’t sweat it, our God is a merciful God. I know it is easier said than done, it is a process, and I know you can get there. Ask God to forgive you, because either you accept it or not, one way or another you had a part in the dissolution. Own up to your mistakes and God who sees the depth of your soul will help you to overcome this pain.

The ideal is to ask for restoration. There is nothing impossible for those who believe. God can and will restore broken vows.

You will survive, you will move forward, you will yet thrive in the courts of the Lord. Remember divorce is not a death sentence! Live henceforth to please The Father of mercy. He will sustain you!

As many times as you fall get back up and ask for mercy. Mercy never run dry from the throne, it flows ceaselessly for all situation, all sins, all disobedient, and rebellious hearts that have repented of evil.

On the flip side is to be in a union and yearn for that which is out there. More to come on this!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Broken Vows!


Vows have been broken, hearts have been broken, pain and hurt unbearable. Dreams of ever after shattered, totally ruined and everything has become darkened. Looking around is chaos, darkness and everything is spinning out of control, you seem lost with no sense of direction! Anybody ever been here? Or may be knows anyone that has been? After all the drama and what not! ¬†What next? Where does one go from here? Jump into the next available arm? Bed or what not. That’s not so.

Friends, seek healing!Seek forgiveness first from the Lord Jesus! It is easier said than done I know. After the shame of failure you have experienced, the rejection and loss of all that you hold dear and personal becoming public knowledge, twisted and convoluted, forgiveness is not what is in your mind. If you are a child of God, you will have many questions, you will doubt your salvation, you will doubt God for even daring to allow you go through all these! Oh yes! You will be lost and become unrecognizable to yourself also.

I can go on and on about the reality of broken vows, however I will leave it for a more opportune time. Friends, If you want to be honest with yourself, you had a part to play right. You might not know at the time but yes, it takes two to tangle. However, things does spring out of control and regardless, know that divorce is not an option. Our Lord Jesus frowns against it, Okay, hear me out. The scriptures is against divorce in it entirety, though the Law of Moses gave us an exception which our generation has embraced under the guise of the season of grace. Right! Leaving this also for another time. …. wait for it!

Right now, just the way you are go to the Lord, He knows what you are going through and will help you if you are genuine in your heart to follow His leading. God is more than able to make all grace abound towards you that your hearts and mind will be healed and made whole. Divorce is not a death sentence, there is still lots more afterwards, that is just a chapter of your life that God is still more than able to rewrite for His glory.

Are you out of one and already in another? Dont seek to get out! Come just as you are the Lord beckons. If you are not in any, don’t seek to go into another! Oh friends, the Samaritan woman is an example. Study her story and you will know that there is still yet more in you than the devil knows! You are a canvas in the hand of a Master Painter. You are a masterpiece in the making. Trust Jesus!

Have a wonderful weekend!
