Divorce Is Hard and Exhausting

You never imagined getting to this point. This isn’t what you envisioned for your life. And yet here you are: your heart is broken, you feel betrayed, and your emotional capacity is completely drained. Divorce is hard

You have no option to go through this struggle in privacy. No, no. Instead, your entire church, your family—even your coworkers—get a front row seat to the unfolding of one of the hardest seasons you’ve ever experienced. And wow, do so many people have opinions about this!

Getting up every morning is a struggle, and you long for a day—even just one day—where you could pretend this isn’t your new reality. Even when it’s tough to believe, we know that our good, good Father is near, and that he’s present with you in your brokenheartedness: 

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).

As you find yourself grasping for new strength for another day, consider praying this with us:

A Prayer for Strength During Divorce

Gracious deliverer, help me believe you’re close to my broken heart, and with me in this pain. Provider God, grant me reprieve from the burdensome task of explaining the details of my pain to near-strangers, but bring close some burden-bearing friends to walk lovingly with me through this time. Help me  trust that you have good things in store for me, and that you will deliver me. Despite all that I’ve lost, I count on you to help me find new joy and hope for today. Amen.
