This devotional may not apply to everyone, but we’ve all experienced the pain of heartbreak, and the forgiveness is the same. I know that many of you are a party to divorce. Today is the day to heal. If the hurt that was caused by it still lingers, it might be time to let it go and forgive. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you have to become friends with your ex, but maybe you should realize that the path you’re on has been corrected by God, and good or bad, it’s where he wants you to be. The truth is, it would do you well to get over the pain, and become an adult that can communicate with your foe from the past. Sometimes the pain runs so deep that the other party is unwilling to give; that’s not your fault, you should forgive anyway, it’s to benefit you, not them. I’ve watched a situation unfold where the ex-spouses were vehemently angry towards one another, and there were small children involved. One of the ex-spouses began praying for God to heal the relationship for the sake of the children. It took some time, but eventually the relationship was patched, and they now enjoy the milestones together; the children are better adjusted because of it. God has a heart for these types of issues, ask him to help, he loves to see you heal.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalms 147:3
