I Have No Idea – from WOW

I have no idea why God’s way works, but I know it does.

So what next?  Live for Christ!  God saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began – 1 Timothy 1:9.

Before time began, God set his heart on you.  He called you.  He knew where you would be right at this moment, and in grace with a purpose he made you his own to live for his glory.

Several women in leadership in our women’s ministries as well as a number of our disciplers have been through divorces.  One of them was sharing at our discipler meeting on Monday, tears of pain in her eyes,

“What I would tell a woman considering divorce is this: Fight for your marriage!  Going through divorce is like death – it’s worse than death.  You lose so much more than a spouse: you lose family, you lose friends.  You may think your marriage is a place of pain and divorce is an escape.  But it’s not!  It is a lifetime of heartache that multiplies and goes on.

“But to the woman on the other side, who is divorced, I would tell her that God has given me the most wonderful new life, and a godly husband, and so much joy.  It takes time, but eventually healing comes.  Divorce leaves a scar, but scars do’t have any pain.”
