Remember, as a child on Christmas morning, searching behind the Christmas tree, hoping to find more gifts? You can do the same when you are suffering. Look behind your cross for hidden gifts… blessings you don’t readily recognize.
Have you come closer to Christ as a result of your divorce? Was there an abusive behavior tearing the family apart that has now ceased since your ex-spouse left? Are you now free to live your faith to the fullest, whereas you were held back from that during your marriage? There probably are many hidden gifts behind the cross that are waiting to be discovered…
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
