Marty’s Story

I really struggled to recover from my divorce. When my wife left, there were many days of being so numb, I needed to leave myself notes to know what to do next. There were tears from stress and loneliness. I often hid from my friends because I was embarrassed and didn’t want anyone to know. That included people at church. I felt like a loser. How could I have a failed marriage?

But then Jesus started to speak to me in many ways. There were songs on the radio, pastor messages at church and online, time reading the Bible and working through devotions. And of course, prayer. I found that Jesus didn’t want me to just survive but to grow and be an encouragement to others. I found that the passing of time helps but I only truly recovered and grew as a person through my walk with Jesus. -Marty
