Devotional Nuggets – #44

Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old… for I will do a new thing…’ – Isaiah 43:18 -19 (NKJV).

The spate of divorce in our today’s world is very alarming. Frictions abound in relationships because humans are all flawed. Sometimes our inability to manage these frictions and tensions as they build up beclouds our senses and we overreact. Nobody is perfect and the ability to resolve these situations depends on the partners involved and their tolerance level. How we resolve our differences vary with individuals and sometimes the centre collapses completely.

When things get out of hand, we are left with no other option than to end the relationship. Ending a relationship is always accompanied by guilt, regret, hurt and pain as the case may be. Though, there are some relationships that end, and you heave a sigh of relief because it is just a good riddance to a bad rubbish. Toxic relationships fall within this category.

Divorce is one of the most painful things the human heart can experience. If it has happened to you, you know that’s true. If it hasn’t, be grateful and show compassion towards those who’ve been devastated by it.

  • Have you been crushed by someone you trusted?
  • Does loneliness overwhelm you in the midnight hours?
  • Do you feel as though your hands are completely tied?
  • Does it upset you because your friends don’t seem to understand?
  • Do you cry at night while others are sleeping peacefully?
  • Do you deride yourself because of your drastic decisions or stupid actions?

Don’t despair – your present circumstances will change. You will recover; you will rebuild; you will not stay down forever. It will take time, oh yes, and you’ll have to invest some efforts too. Remember that wounds heal after a while. Pains ease off with time. Tears dry up after much crying. Bad memories fade away gradually as we expend less energy on them.

There is the ability to love again if we look up with hope in our eyes… there is the ability to smile and laugh again if we wash off the soot in our eyes. Be at alert in your spirit and know when to rebuild your brokenness. The bible tells us that ‘dry bones shall live again’ – Ezekiel 37: 4…

Stand up and rebuild your lost glory. It might be difficult but the onus is on you to ‘LIVE AGAIN’.

You will experience pages of sadness in your diary of success as a human being. But by God’s grace you will learn to live again and love again and be your buoyant self again.

I urge you to smile and stay in the moment.

Peace and Love!
