Divorce can feel like a sickness so terrible it makes you want to die. The pain is never-ending it seems. But God can take the most horrible situation and bring good out of it. In the same way he allowed Lazarus to die, he allowed your divorce to happen, and he is waiting for the opportunity to show us the good things he can bring about as a result of the bad. This is one way he brings us closer to himself; it is a way to show us how much he cares for you and how, if you let him, he will make you happy despite the terrible loss you are suffering. Are you open to giving him free reign in our lives to accomplish good things?
Jesus replied ,”Have I not told you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” So they took the stone away. Then Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You for hearing my prayer. I, myself, knew that you hear me always; but speak for the sake of the people who are standing around me, so that they may believe it was you who sent me.” When he had said this, he cried in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” – John 11: 40-45
