From "Daily Survival Guide for Divorced Men"
"By his power and through his grace, God can repair the damage done to you. By his power and through his grace, God can forgive the damage you have done to others, including your ex-wife and your family. We are damaged and we cause damage. We are messed up and we mess up others.
A significant piece of the healing journey is to understand this simple concept-we all need to be repaired and we all need to be forgiven. When we enter this process something amazing happens: As we experience God's gracious healing and gentle conviction he begins to use us to clean up our messes and help repair others. I know this sounds daunting right now but it is doable by (1) taking one day at a time, (2) seeking God's grace and strength, and (3) holding on to hope in this moment and for the future."
