What God joins together,
Man cannot separate.
What God’s love creates,
This world cannot harm.
When God gives light,
Where can there be darkness?
When God smiles in love upon us,
What can we do but love?
About This Song:
Of the two hundred-plus song lyrics I’ve posted on this blog, this one is the hardest to talk about. That’s why I’m hesitant to post it now.
When I wrote “Wedding Song” for my first wife, I meant those words. Just as I meant every word of our wedding vows.
Jesus had some tough things to say about divorce. He considered it a sin except in the case of adultery. That was certainly not the case in my divorce.
It’s easy for Christians who are still married to their original spouses to speak harshly of those of us who are divorced.
But God forgives all kinds of sin. The cleansing that comes from His forgiveness is complete. Perfect. Eternal.
You may not be divorced, but you may be guilty of other things you know God considers sinful. Sins that feel huge. Bigger than the everyday kind of sins we’re all guilty of. Sins that are too big for God to forgive.
No sin is that big, however. All we have to do is repent and ask God’s forgiveness. For that I’m truly thankful.
