|Glimpses of Hope|
|Hope Stories - Stories|
I have been married 23 years with two wonderful children, but I have a very volatile marriage. We both got angrier and angrier with each other, yelling, drinking, etc. Then he did something I thought would never happen. He asked for a divorce and said he found someone that made him happy.
I immediately found a divorce support group, bought their book, and started studying my Bible again. Almost instantly, when I started reading God's word, I realized I was not the wife God wanted me to be (Ephesians 5 ). That day I had my last drink. I had already cried days which turned into weeks begging for forgiveness, looking for what I was to do next (Jeremiah 29:11 , Psalm 28:7 , Proverbs 3:5-6 ). I am trying to be the wife God wants me to be. My heart breaks every time he texts her or gets on the computer to talk to her.
I know God is with me (Isaiah 54:5 , Deuteronomy 31:6 ), and I know He has a plan (Jeremiah 29:11 ) and I have to trust in Him (Proverbs 3:5-6 ). It's a constant prayer to help me be patient, wait on the Lord, and don't give up (Galatians 5:9 ). Even if I end up divorced, I have stopped drinking and found the Lord of my life again. I am thankful for that. I don't believe in divorce and I love my husband, and there's little glimpses of hope when I pray and study.
