I am recently divorced at age 46 and I was curious to know if I should be praying to God to bring me a Godly man into my life to marry and also how can I prepare myself right now to be a submissive and Godly wife to my future husband if that is God’s will? Peacefulwife on September 30, 2014 at 12:54 am Kristy, There are some who believe that if a divorce had biblical justification, the innocent spouse may remarry. Some believe that there is to be no remarriage as long as a spouse is living. I kind of wish the Bible talked more about this issue. There isn’t much about remarriage at all – except that to divorce and remarry would be adultery – certainly in a case where there was no biblical basis for divorce. However – there is EVERY reason for hope in Christ! He is able to give you the wisdom you need as you seek Him far above everything else in this life. And He is able to flood your soul with His supernatural peace, love, joy and abundant spiritual life! I know this is a lot to prayerfully consider. I don’t know your situation. But I am glad to talk if you want to talk. I am super excited that you want to draw close to God and become a godly wife. That is a beautiful thing. 🙂 Much love to you!!!! April Peacefulwife on September 30, 2014 at 3:12 pm I also have many posts here about preparing to be a godly wife. You are most welcome here. 🙂 I can’t wait to see all that God has in store for you! Peacefulwife on October 5, 2014 at 8:20 am Kristy, You have been on my heart so much. I am praying for you and hope to hear how you are doing when you are ready. Sending you a big hug, my precious sister! Emma on September 30, 2014 at 6:29 pm I love this post! One thing I think it essential in a lady is a gentle and quiet spirit. I am not exactly sure how to have one yet, but I really want to learn! Also the post about divorce is a good one! Divorce is such a hard topic to understand, especially today. I really liked what you said, April, in your post. – A wife must not separate from her husband. (I Corinthians 7:10) – If a wife does separate from her husband, she is to remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband. (I Corinthians 7:11) – If a wife divorces her husband and remarries someone else, she is committing adultery according to Jesus (this applies to husbands, as well). (Luke 16:18) This is what me and my family have come to believe here recently. We must all remember adulterers will not make it into the Kingdom! Thanks for both of these thought provoking posts. It is good to meditate on the things of the LORD. Peacefulwife on October 1, 2014 at 6:57 am Emma, The key to a gentle and quiet/peaceful spirit is total trust in God and a willingness to rest in His sovereignty in faith instead of trying to grab for control or being full of fear, worry and anxiety. 🙂 Divorce is a VERY difficult topic. And what God’s Word says is so opposed to what our world says – even what we are told in church, sometimes. It is extremely painful. I hate that it is so painful! But, my prayer is that God might spare us all from even greater pain. Repenting of sin is painful. Obeying God is painful and often requires great sacrifice – but there are incredible rewards – in this lifetime and in heaven forever when this short life is over. Jesus’ teachings about divorce were not popular 2000 years ago. They are not popular today. We would rather ignore them. And that is what we have been doing collectively – but look at where this has brought us. Praying for individual healing for each hurting marriage, for God’s glory in individual marriages and for His healing corporately – that this generation might rise up to become a godly generation that brings great honor and glory to Christ! Much love!
