I try not to write about my life on here very much, but my parents are getting divorced, and I thought I should write about it. It’s something about half of us have to deal with, so it’s fairly prevalent.
The shortest verse in the bible. It’s simple, but profound.
“Jesus wept.” - John 11:35
There’s a huge message there. This world is a world full of brokenness, and our God is not a God that is above that brokenness, but in the midst of it. He is not merely looking down at us as we suffer, He is with us.
Our God feels sadness when we feel sadness. He mourns when we mourn. Think about that – Jesus crying. It’s oddly comforting, especially if you know the context of the verse.
I’m not trying to act like I have all the answers in this post. I’m just trying to say that if your parents are divorced or are going through a divorce – know that our God feels our pain, that our God cries.
Sometimes there’s nothing we can do or learn that will make our situation any better, we just need someone to be there with us.
