Depending On God In Divorce: Lessons Learned
During the darkest moments of Ashley’s life, she still managed to learn a handful of life lessons. One is that our circumstances don’t determine our emotions. We can decide how we feel about things and how we react to those feelings. Just make sure to feel your feelings! Ashley also says to grieve with the hope of Christ. She had moments where she felt like God had given up on her, and she had to fight to continue to trust in His process. God teaches us to rejoice in suffering, which is difficult when you are in the middle of it. Just remember to stay strong and keep your eyes on Christ!

Through it all, even when her faith in Christ and her church wavered, Ashley always fell back on “God is good.” Her thoughts and prayers revolved around this, and even though she felt hopeless, she repeated that “God is good.” You may be in a dark time and feel like no one understands, but God does. Take it one day at a time, and let God set the schedule. Even when it’s hard, He is with you and will help you through.
