God Restores Brokenness

Seventeen years ago my world fell apart and I thought my life was over.  My then husband walked out on my daughter and I, choosing another woman.

It was a year of heartache, change, and new beginnings.  It wasn't easy, but we survived.

Because of Jesus.

He brought me back to life, gave me a life, and hasn't stopped since.

It's hard to explain that now as I look back, God had a plan for me.  I couldn't believe it then, as it felt like He had forgotten me.  Hardship can be like that sometimes.  But He was refining me through the fire, and my life could not be what it is today without having walked through that fire.


I've been remarried now for 15 years, to a man that exceeds my every dream in a husband.  God brought me to this town to meet him, knowing we were a perfect match.  I had no idea how beautiful marriage could and should be, but now I'm living it. 

So if you are in the valley, and you can't see where God is taking you, would you trust Him?  He will take care of you, He promises in his Word that He will.

If you are struggling today, would you allow me to pray for you?  Just leave a comment and I will lift you to the Throne of God over the next several days.

  1. I am so glad to read how the Lord brought happiness back into your life. I'm sure you couldn't have made it through the pain without His presence. Each one of us has our own story but I know I've learned that God is sufficient and He knows all the details.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

    1. Redemption! YES! It feels like another lifetime ago. I like that God has let those memories fade.
