Divorced Fathers Celebrate Fathers Day

The actions of divorce force men to start over, starting a new beginning,
and rebuilding of relationships with children, renewing a father’s spirituality,
and the redirection of personal priorities in life. No matter what cultural
background, maturity range, salary scale or religious conviction, divorce
can be overwhelming, demeaning, financially draining (especially if you
are proving child support and or alimony), and a emotional roller coaster
that never seems to end. In Matthew 6:33 states, “..seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness..”, when searching for direction
through this challenging time. The best guide is the reading of the Bible
and seeking understanding of the Word. Reading and interpretation can
refocus your life, redirect your spirituality in scripture and provides comfort
and solace.
