Divorce and Spirituality - Identity
Updated: Jan 8
Although the divorce rate in the United States is around 50% for first marriages, a stigma remains, especially in the south. For many living in the Bible Belt accepting divorce is still taboo. Regardless of the opinions of others, one thing's for certain: God has a plan for your life and He cares for you.
Many people find their identity in their marriage. When that bond is broken they are left wondering who they are and what their place is in the world. It can be an emotional rollercoaster of uncertainty. However, there is one place that you can always rely on to know the truth. Scripture provides believers with comforting and relevant descriptions of your identity.
Your are a child of God. (Ephesians 1:5)
You are a member of the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:27)
You are created in Christ's likeness. (Genesis 1:26-27)
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:13-14)
You are chosen by God and called His friend. (John 15:15-16)
You are the home of the Holy Spirit who lives in you. (1 Corinthians 6:19)
You are forgiven. (1 John 1:9)
The world will give you many labels. Knowing your identity in Christ will allow you to have a foundational understanding of who you are, regardless of life's circumstances. Find yourself in Him and be fully known.
