Broken

Divorce

Some of you wondered where I have been for a while. I have been hiding under blankets in a depression after the divorce was over with.

I was not going to post this but after much thought; Hey some times our art comes from the things that we enjoy or endure. It is a way of expressing the feelings deep within that at times hide until the art tools are put to the paper enabling us to process what we are feeling.

I am not laying or hiding under the blankets any more. In fact I know that I am not reject or useless etc.... I will be posting more on this as the pictures come of how the heart is restored. What has helped me and brought me to the level of healing where I am at now is Jesus Christ the Lord. One thing that Jesus said is; I have come to heal the broken hearted and to set the captives free. He does bring healing and hope to the wounded soul. He strengthens those that are weary for it is written; Those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up on wings of an Eagle. They shall walk and not grow weary and they shall run and not faint.

Yes, Life at times is hard and sucks yet I am truly thankful for His tender mercies and wonderful intimacy. I still have more work to do on this area of my heart for I have not yet arrived but He has brought me along way. I have hope.

Thank you for all you who have asked for me and wondered where I have gone for a while. This group Everyday Matters is truly wonderful and I am thankful for all of you and the encouragement that you have given to me to keep on drawing even during this time. Your guys rock!!! Thank you Odd Chick for asking a few times where have I been.

Amen, amen and amen! I will be praying for you and your complete emotionally recovery. Your work is wonderful and I know that the Lord will pour His power and creativity into and through you and you will not only be healed, but you will be a blessing to more than you will every imagine. After all, He does promise to turn your ashes into gold and your sorrow into dancing! Here's to dancing!
God bless you,
Libbi

My heartfelt prayers go out to you! My son has a court date tomorrow regarding custody of his son and my stomach has been in knots all week. Yes, the Lord helps the most, but art will be a tremendous outlet for you. . . indulge in it.

Good for you!! Yes, God will supply all our needs (even emotional ones) according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. You can do all things through Him who gives you strength. Even on those under-the-cover days... He is there. May God give you peace and healing.

Time is an amazing thing. I believe it is said time heals all wounds. It does get better. Plus see this as a learning experience, especially so that you do not make the same mistakes again. Take some time and find yourself out side of being a husband. Divorce is never easy, it feels like your best friend has died:(.

From one divorced person to another I am sorry you are going through this. Mine was 20 years ago. Life has gone on and love has reblossomed and I am happy today... you will be too in time. You have the best foundation going in Christ. Draw what you feel and get it out on the paper. My thoughts are with you.

You are on the right path. Keep up the drawings and express yourself and letting out your pain. That's the greatest gift to yourself. You are in my prayers and I will continue to check back:-)!

Glad to hear you are "healing" and coming out into the world again and expressing through your art.

I enjoyed catching up here.

I am so sorry to hear you felt like you had to hide away but I guess we all have some of those. At least you didn't stay under the covers for 10 years like my sister did! No one can tell you what the proper length of time for grieving is - it's your decision but I am glad you've decided to share your drawing and start back with life again.
