I so kid you not moments before I started to write my blog on divorce and Christianity a person that I am following wrote a blog on mixed marriages. It’s not what you think that it is, it was about mixing spiritually. After I read it I felt set free. Anyone who knows me know how stubborn that I can be how I will hold on when letting go is the best option. Physically my ex and I aren’t together haven’t been for over ten years now.However guilt about what is said in scripture gets to me. But after I read the blog I felt that it was confirmation about everything. It’s understood how God feels about divorce : Malachi 2:16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for [one] I coverth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of host:therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. There are several scriptures on divorce and marriage Book of Luke, Matthew, Romans and Genesis etc. Deuteronomy 24:1 says that the husband must write a letter of divorcement.
In 2004 I got married as I have shared my mother was a Christian and I wanted to give my sons a home to name a few. The reasons why I got married was understandable but were they the right ones? Marriage is a very serious situation and I will not use the cop out about being a backslider at the time there’s just no excuse. After the cute wedding the seriousness of marriage sinks in. If you were to see my ex and I together you’d literally ask how the heck did he and I wined up together. He and I are far from two peas in a pod try oil and water. It’s beyond our background and personalities it’s spiritually as well. I love Christ He has brought me a might long ways and my ex doesn’t believe in what I believe. Our sons and I pray together at night and bless our food. The lifestyle that we lead my ex can not fit in. We can’t mix spiritually the Bible even speak of being with a person when they are unequally yoked 2Corinthians 6:14. For me there has been so much that has taken place between my ex and I that can not be fixed. The marriage is not beyond forgiveness but it is beyond restoration. I am not a pastor but I know how mighty and powerful God is. He sent His only begotten Son to earth. I know that God has to be understanding about my situation. He doesn’t make a person suffer forever behind a bad choice. I will admit that had I not backslid I would made better choice. That’s why I walk strongly today. I would rather wait on God no matter how long it takes. His thinking is higher His ways are higher.
