The Shock and Shards of Divorce: Walking with God While Grieving the Death of a Marriage
Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. I am worn out calling for help. --Psalm 69:1-3a NIV
Enduring marital betrayal and divorce can feel like you’re drowning in a sea of pain. Often, it’s difficult to connect with God because the pain is combined with confusion and fear for the future. However, we are not alone. We have a Savior who has tasted the bitter fruit of betrayal. He understands our pain and can heal our hearts and give us hope for the future.
In this class, Bonnie and Cherise will share how they walked with God while grieving the devastation of divorce and allowed Him to reframe the shards of their shattered lives into a mosaic of beauty and peace.
