Who's on the Lord's Side?

Salli's Divorce Support Blog

I’ve been off-line lately due to a number of reasons; as of the last few days it’s been because of a bad cold. I haven’t felt much like doing anything.

But it’s made me think about life, generally, and how easy it is to get off track. I think a lot of folks can identify with the old hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing”, particularly the line that reads, “Prone to wander, Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love.”

It seems like, down here on earth, it’s all too easy to forget what we’ve learned and let go of our enthusiasm for doing what’s right; and, unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to cause our burning fire of commitment and testimony to dim. But when you think about it, life in this fallen world isn’t meant to be a simple task; there are roadblocks all along the way that can distract us, detain us, and out and out derail us!

But as I thought about it this morning, it occurred to me that “forgetting” isn’t a crime at all, because in “remembering” again and again we prove who we are and whose side we’re on! To show our mettle all we have to do is continue to choose the right. Choose to move forward. Choose the Lord's way.

If you are divorced and you find that the fire of your commitment to home, family, your work, the gospel, the Lord, or whatever it may be for you has dimmed, don’t be discouraged, just recommitment to what you know is right.

It’s a chance to show the Lord---once again—that you really do want to be on His side!
