Divorce

Divorce happens after a husband and wife decide not to live together anymore and that they no longer want to be married to each other. They agree to sign legal papers that make them each single again and allow them to marry other people if they want to. If the family has kids then it hurts them!! It also hurts their feelings when one parent wants to leave the house where they live. It is hard not to take it personally. It’s important to remember that divorce happens between the husband and wife, and even though it affects the whole family, it doesn’t mean that a parent who leaves the house doesn’t care about the kids. It’s important to remember that divorce doesn’t change one important fact: A dad or mom who lives somewhere else is still your dad or mom. That’s forever. That will never change.

Adults have their own reasons for divorce. Whatever the reasons are, one thing is for sure: Kids don’t cause divorce. Still, many kids believe they’re the reason their mom and dad got divorced. They think that if only they had behaved better, gotten better grades, or helped more around the house, the divorce wouldn’t have happened. But this isn’t true. Divorce is between moms and dads only! Even if you once heard your parents argue about you, or your friend next door thinks his parents broke up because he got in trouble at school, these things don’t cause a husband and wife to end their marriage. You might feel you’re to blame for your parents’ divorce, but you are not the cause. And the fact that your parents decide not to stay married is not your fault.

Now even tweens/teens think that it is their fault. Well I here to tell you that it’s not your fault! You may be going through that and you don’t know what to do or who to turn to. Well let me tell you that you can turn to GOD and HE will help you through.

So is divorce right or wrong? WRONG!!!!!!!!!

Here are some scriptures on divorce:

Matthew 5:31-32
31) Furthermore it has been said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32) But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immoralitycauses her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery. (NKJV)

Matthew 19:3-9
3) The Pharisees also came to HIM, testing HIM, and saying to HIM, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?” 4)  And HE answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who madethem at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5) and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6) So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what GOD has joined together, let not man separate.” 7) They said to HIM, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” 8) HE said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. 9) And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.” (NKJV)

Mark 10:2-12
2) The Pharisees came and asked HIM, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” testing HIM. 3) And HE answered and said to them, “What did Moses command you?” 4)  They said, “Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her.” 5)  And JESUS answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6) But from the beginning of the creation, GOD ‘made them male and female.’ 7)  ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8) and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9) Therefore what GOD has joined together, let not man separate.” 10) In the house HIS disciples also asked HIM again about the same matter. 11)  So HE said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. 12) And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.” (NKJV)

Romans 7:2-3
2)
For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. 3) So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. (NKJV)

1 Corinthians 7:10-11, 27
10) Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11) But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife. 27) Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? Do not seek a wife. (NKJV)

I know some of you are not marred and I know that some of you are! So here are some ways to prevent divorce:

1) Marriage: GOD’S plan for a lifetime. (1 Corinthians 7:10-16 – 10) Now to the married I command, yet not I but the Lord: A wife is not to depart from her husband. 11) But even if she does depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. And a husband is not to divorce his wife. 12) But to the rest I, not the LORD, say: If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. 13) And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. 14) For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. 15) But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But GOD has called us to peace. 16) For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife? (NKJV)

2) Pray together. (1 Thessalonians 3:1-3 – 1) Therefore, when we could no longer endure it, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone, 2) and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of GOD, and our fellow laborer in the gospel of CHRIST, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith, 3) that no one should be shaken by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that we are appointed to this. (NKJV)

3) They read GOD’S Word together go beyond “devotions,” to true Devotion. (Psalm 119:11 – YOUR word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against YOU. (NKJV)

4) They make deposits in the “Love Bank.” (Ephesians 4:32 – And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as GOD in CHRIST forgave you. (NKJV)

5) They treat their spouse with respectful affection, and speak well of each other publicly. (Ephesians 5:22-25 – 22) Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the LORD.  23) For the husband is head of the wife, as also CHRIST is head of the church; and HE is the SAVIOR of the body. 24) Therefore, just as the church is subject to CHRIST, so let the wives beto their own husbands in everything. 25) Husbands, love your wives, just as CHRIST also loved the church and gave HIMSELF for her. (NKJV)

6) They are self-aware and communicate skillfully. (Philippians 2:1-15 – 1)  Therefore if there is any consolation in CHRSIT, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the SPIRIT, if any affection and mercy, 2) fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3) Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 4) Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. 5) Let this mind be in you which was also in CHRIST JESUS, 6) who, being in the form of GOD, did not consider it robbery to be equal with GOD, 7) but made HIMSELF of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8) And being found in appearance as a man, HE humbled HIMSELF and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9) Therefore GOD also has highly exalted HIM and given HIM the name which is above every name, 10) that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11) and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is LORD, to the glory of GOD the FATHER. 12) Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13) for it is GOD who works in you both to will and to do for HIS good pleasure. 14) Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15) that you may become blameless and harmless, children of GOD without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. (NKJV)

Putting GOD first in your marriage is the best thing that you can do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My father left us when I was 9. He had a girlfriend and just said to mum that he wasn’t in love with her any more. We stayed living in the house and he went off with this girl. Nothing was any good after he went. We were alone. When he divorced mum, he married the girlfriend. I still live with mum but spend a bit of time with dad and Ann, his second wife. It’s weird because they argue a lot and mum and dad didn’t argue. It used to be peaceful at our house. I daren’t ask him if he’s happier since divorcing and remarrying but I want to. Ann wants to have a baby now and I know dad doesn’t, and I don’t want them to either. It seems stupid having more kids when he wasn’t a proper father to his first family. I wish dad and mum had stayed married. It’s too complicated since they divorced. I know it’s normal these days to have divorced parents but I think the one that breaks up the family is selfish. It messes kids up and makes them unhappy. I wish they’d stayed together.

The first edit was not good so here you go. Sorry about that. #disneyfriendshipcollab David was greatly distressed, for the men spoke of stoning him because the souls of them all were bitterly grieved, each man for his sons and daughters. But David encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
- 1 Samuel 30:6 AMPC

This verse as meet a lot to me in the past year!!!! I love the last part where it says that "David encouraged and strengthened himself on the Lord his God!!!!!!!!" For many reasons this has stayed with me.

1) David knew that he needed the Lord. No matter what came his way he looked to God!!!! He went to Him and praise Him!!! He worshiped Him!!!! He got alone with Him!!!!!! David had the right idea!!!!! No matter what we are going through we need to look to God!!!!! He has all the answers. I mean come on, if Hr could send Him One and only Son to die for us. Do you not think He has all the answers we need? Yes He does. The question now is, are we going to look to Him or others for the answer? 
2) So David also strengthened himself in the Lord!!!! Again with the waiting and spending time with God!!!!! We need to do that as well. 
3) This one has hit me hard over the past few months. Did you see that David encouraged himself in the Lord? It didn't say that his friends encouraged him. It didn't say that his family encouraged him. It didn't say, and the list could go on. But he encouraged himself in the Lord.

Sometimes when we are in a fight it can be hard. Believe me I know. But you have to remember that not all the time is there going to be someone there to help you. You have to know how to encourage yourself. Yes it may be hard and hurts at times but we have to do it. How do you encourage yourself you may ask? Here are a few ways: · Worship the Lord in music · Read the Word of God to yourself
· Pray ( not about the problem but about the victory you already have)
· Tell yourself what the Word of God says

Those are a few ways.

So if you are in that fight right now, just start worshiping God! If your not there still worship Him. Get yourself in the mood to start that at anytime!!!! #Devo #scripture #bible #bibleverse #bibleverses #cool #yesLord Happy Independence Day Everyone!!!!!!! I pray you all have a blessed day!!!!! We need to remember the ones that are serving to keep the USA free!!! Also we need to remember that we have freedom through Jesus as well!!!!! We are free!!!!!! So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.
- John 8:36 AMPC

#July4th #Independanceday #HappyIndependanceday #Happy4thofjuly Suicide:

What makes a person think of suicide?? Loneliness, heartbreak, heartache, rejection, abuse(physical, mental, emotional, verbal, psychologically), bulling, not worth it, ext!

Did you know that there is on average a 121 suicides a day? About 13.26 per 100,000 people.

That is sad!!!!! How many of them are Christians? How many of them are school kids? How many of them are ones that are "not wanted"? How many???? The list could go on!!!!!! Stop and think about it. The person you are sitting next to could be thinking about it. At work, school, walking down the street or even church. Yes church! Do you know that Christian have the same thoughts as well? 
Is if fun to think these thoughts? NO!!!! Is it your fault? NO!!!!!!!! Is there hope? YES!!!!!! Is there something wrong with you? NO!!!!!!!!! Can't you get free and out of it? YES!!!!!!! There is hope for you. You can be set free!!!!! That is what Jesus did for you!!!!! But do you know what? People don't talk about this. People don't look for help cause they think that it shameful. The shouldn't think this way or try to do it. People look down on people that think this way. It is hard.

But what would happen if we as the body of Christ would listen up. What would happen if we payed attention? What would happen if you got so close to God that He would let us know that someone was thinking about it? What would happen?

There is hope for them just like there is hope for us. I want to be able to help them. I want to see them smile again. I want to see them laugh again. But you know what? Do you know who wants that more then anything? God!!!!!!! He wants that. It makes Him sad to see people kill themselves. 
So as a believer: I want to make a stand and help them. There is hope, help, peace, comfort, but more important! Love for them. Let us show them love and let them see Jesus in us. 
That is my prayer!!!!!! #thinking #journaling #lifepost #Jesus #God #love #peace #joy #comfort #reallife #realtalk When life gets hard, pray harder!
When life gets crazy, read the Word more.

Life is not the best but not the worst. It all depends on your point of view. 
We need to be reading the Word and praying everyday. But sometimes we have things that come up and it can be hard. But that is when we trust Him and let Him lead us. 
Don't get upset, frustrated, angery, bitter, ext. Just give it to God and obey.

Okay so I'm learning this right now. My life is not perfect but I'm learning. The more I read the Word the more I realize how much I don't know. But it is best to listen and obey. I have disobeyed but we learn from it. What satan wants for a deaator God can turn for glory. It may hurt but do. Just obey, it may seem hard but in the long run it will work out. 
I love all of you!!!! DM is always open. If you need prayer, talk, ext. I'm here for you!!! God bless

#life #God #Bible #youcanmakeit Rabbits are sooooooo cute!!!!! So when you are spending time with Jesus and a rabbit comes out of no where. Starts eating and then just lays down for a rest!!!!!
