One of our friends shared this note on our Facebook group page and I wanted to share it here as well… Our Facebook pages are great places for you to feel anonymous, loved, encouraged and comfortable, I encourage you to join us (and “Like” us) there. There’s a link at the top of this page that will take you…
“The fact that God has kept me single shows me how much He loves me, because He is protecting me from being hurt again. I know if I never meet that special person who sees me as the one, and I him; I will be okay and I will have joy.  I thought that I had to have a man in my life to be happy, but I was wrong.
All the times my ex told me he couldn’t make me happy, I thought that he was wrong or he just wasn’t trying. But I was wrong, no one can make any one happy… If you can’t find happiness while you are single, you will never be happy when you are married. Who’d have thought my ex could teach me so much by leaving me. I’ve learned that even bad relationships can bring healing to our lives, if we let the Lord show us the truth.

Oh how I wish I had known these truths, when I was young! I am so grateful for the things I have learned with my ex, after my ex, and because of my ex… I’ve learned that every experience will teach us something, if we let it. I have grown so much from the process of healing from my divorce. You know, it is funny, but it has made me a better woman. Who could have guessed! The Lord told me that He had places for me to go, that I would not have gone, if He had told me then, and it is oh so true. I would not have gone there, but in tears, I am glad I did. Nothing good ever comes without pain. In life or death, in birth or in sacrifice, and in so many other ways. Pain must be the door to all those great things. Even Jesus had to walk through the door of pain, for us to be able to spend eternity with Him”.
