Adventist Single Adult Ministries offers support for church members dealing with death or divorce. Andre Hicks has more.
Most Single Adults have had their heart broken during this journey called life. ASAM (Adventist Single Adult Ministries) can educate our single adults, in healing their hearts.
Life with a spouse is an exceptionally beautiful experience for most couples. Death or divorce may unsettle our sense of who we are, blame and/or distrust others, and at times shakes our confidence in God. Grief is a natural response to loss. Because losses by death or divorce are extremely painful - survivors go through stages in the grief process - denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
Regarding Grief, the way out is walking through it! Do not set a timeframe for grieving based on another survivor’s coping style. Healing from death or divorce takes time. However, time does not heal unless appropriate efforts are directed towards this goal. Getting back to life’s routines helps to provide a sense of control over what seems totally out of control.
Awakening the heart to love again is a choice! When the will of God is released, this act engages the creative powers of the Holy Spirit. It is He who brings grace, strength, and healing to the distraught heart.
