Going through a divorce is life-altering and devastating. It can turn your world upside down and affect you emotionally, physically, financially, and spiritually. It can leave you helpless and hopeless, and broken and bruised. It can lower your self-esteem; it can make you feel like a victim; it can decrease your confidence; it can make you lose your identity and your mind.
Personally speaking, I know firsthand that a divorce can affect your mind, body, soul, and spirit. When I went through a difficult divorce, I experienced a lot of pain, heartache, emotional trauma, and setbacks. Deep inside my core, I literally thought that “I could not make it!” Negative voices (self-limiting beliefs; the adversary) told me that “you are a failure; you are defeated; you are bitter, frustrated, and confused; you are worthless; you will not love again; you will not survive.”
After battling with self-doubt and hearing those negative words constantly, I decided to overcome my fears, persevere through my distress and sorrow, and defeat the adversary. I made an informed decision to rise up, level up, and speak up! I took control of my life and took action to get help and become a conqueror.
God reminded me that “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). God turned my pain into purpose and my tears into smiles! Today, I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and unapologetically me: confident, self-assured, and tenacious!
