Living in the Wait, by Allison Stanley
I am going through a divorce. I don’t say that flippantly. After 19 years of marriage and 4 children, I never imagined those words would be true of my life, but here I am living it. I come from a background steeped in reformed theology. My history tells me I should never be shocked by sin, and I should always believe the worst about myself. But honestly, I am shocked. As I write, I am in the middle of it. I am not at the sweet spot with gained perspective, looking back proclaiming God’s faithfulness. I am in the middle, looking ahead, desperately hoping He will be faithful as He promised.
