The separation or breakdown of the family structure, their lives, and their way of life is never easy. Oftentimes it isn’t even understood. Yet, it is a sensitive issue of the utmost importance that needs attention and a sifting through to find a new way of life. It is always the hope that families can find positive ways to cope and co-exist if the option of mending the marriage or relationship is not possible. For believers, our first line of defense is Yeshua our Messiah, for He is The Defender and Protector of our hearts. He is our Great Example of how to live and navigate sensitive issues as well as maintain, restructure, and rebuild the family unit. The essence of a unified family is the mirror image of God’s Love.
Someone recently presented the following question:
Is divorce a “broken home” to a child?
Yes, but it doesn’t mean it has to look or operate like one.
If both parents can co-parent amicably then that will set the foundation and precedent for a healthy family structure giving the children a sense of normalcy and the best chance at transitioning and adjusting to a new way of life.
This type of scenario is sensitive for everyone involved but for the child, it leaves them vulnerable and can be a mark of shifting the trajectory of the path of their life.
It would do the parents well to in the midst of their pain to pay and give attention to the most fragile member(s) of their family and take care to not burst the bubble of the child’s innocence as that can lead them down a tumultuous road in their life and leave them in their adult years with emotional scarring that can take a lifetime to overcome, if at all.
Events like these are pivotal moments in children’s lives…they need caution and care in the handling and acknowledgment of their feelings/emotions.
Show them that the breakdown of their family structure is not abandonment and that they will still be loved and shown now even more so to compensate for the void of a unified home.
Give them the opportunity, time, and space to heal and have patience, sympathy & compassion for them.
Be understanding of the fact that the recovery from the breakdown of the family structure in this manner is a process but this negative experience can turn into a positive one in time.
All the best.
As believers, we can make a difference, whether by acts of kindness, partaking in conversation, or simply answering a question, these events are opportunities to show what the mind of Christ looks like. Thereby, applying Biblical principles to circumstances we face in our everyday lives and daily living.
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
1 John 3:2-3
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
Walk in Love.
Be holy for He Is Holy.
