Sometimes things hit us that we never saw coming. Life, it sometimes just gets tough. I know in my life I have overcome so many obstacles. Childhood physical and sexual abuse, my dad’s murder, a husband committing suicide, and my story goes on and on. I re-married and was married for 6 years when my husband served me with divorce papers a year ago. I found myself face down on the floor again; why God, why? Isn’t that the question we always ask him?
I just have to tell you, it was a blessing in disguise. Do you know the song I thank God for unanswered prayer by Garth Brooks? That became my song; I started to find me again that had been lost for so many years. When you put a butterfly in a box, it dies. That was me; in that marriage, I was dying. I now see that the divorce was the best thing that ever happened to me; it set me free. I am closer to Jesus than I ever have been.
