The day my divorce was final, I stood before the judge. My ex-to-be was not present. The judge asked me if I understood that what I was agreeing to could not be brought back or disputed.
“Yes,” I answered.
He was talking about property, I was talking about my marriage. This was not what I wanted. Although this day was not reached hastily, I still believed that somehow, someway, someday, God was going to make this decision disputable and we would come back to change it.
It did not happen my way.
I wrote in my journal that day, “I stand at the threshold of the future. Single with two children, but not alone.”
I had a sense that day that my life would not be easier post-divorce, but I also knew that whatever happened, Jesus was not going to leave me to do it alone. And He has not.
How about you? Do you stand at a threshold? Who are you going to walk through that door with? Might I suggest the Lord Jesus?
God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
