It’s been several years now that I’ve been on my own. It hasn’t been easy. For years I depended on my spouse while I stayed home to raise our kids. But one thing led to another and I found myself in the midst of a divorce and sometimes it wasn’t pretty. I failed. I felt alone and was scared I couldn’t survive emotionally. But I have, but it hasn’t been easy. I still cry a lot. I still feel like I’m a failure.  It’s a one day at a time – one step at a time for me.

God promises us that He will never leave us or forsake us. His promise is true for me. I’ve been able to survive on my own even though my heart is still broken. I pray for healing and cling to His promises.
