IT'S NEVER TOO LATE FOR GOD
By Dennis & Barbara Rainey,
"Moments Together for Couples"
"With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 9:26)
When I hear of people divorcing because of "irreconcilable differences," I think of the above verse. When a marriage looks
doomed from man's perspective, that's when man needs to turn to God. If the almighty God can part the Red Sea, if He can reconcile
you to Him by the sacrifice of His Son, why is it impossible for Him to heal a broken marriage?
You may be facing "irreconcilable differences" in your marriage, or perhaps in a relationship with another person at work,
at church or in your neighborhood. If so, take heart from the following note given to one of our FamilyLife Marriage Conference
Last year in March my wife, Susan, informed me she didn't love me and wanted a divorce. I wanted to work to save our marriage,
but she didn't.
My sister gave us a registration form to attend a FamilyLife Marriage Conference in 1992. Susan filed for divorce, so I attended
the conference alone.
I became aware through the conference of the reasons my marriage was failing. God was not a part of our marriage. After the
conference I became involved in and eventually joined a church. I prayed for God's will in my life but especially for God
to put my family and marriage back together. However, the divorce was final soon afterward.
Miraculously, my new church started a single parents' support group and care group in July. I joined immediately. God supplied
the support I needed to become a single parent. Afterward, Susan and I began to discuss the mistakes we had made in our lives
and our marriage. We began to discuss reconciliation.
Susan and I are here at the conference together, committed to rebuilding our relationship with God as part of our family.
I praise God for answering my prayer even if it's in His own way and His own time. It's never too late for God.
I love that last line. Nothing is impossible for God.
What situations are you facing that seem impossible to you? Ask God to help you believe that nothing is impossible with Him.
Commit to praying with your mate that God would move as only He can.
