Let the stigma stop: Ministers who have been divorced but not destroyed

(Divorced but not destroyed)

This post isn’t intended to endorse divorce or encourage it.
I John Egah personal will never preach divorce as a sermon.
I have counseled countless pastors and saints against that move, who still thank me today for saving their marriages.


Divorce isn’t the death of a marriage. It’s the burial of a dead marriage.

Don’t offer advice to people going through a divorce on how to save their marriage. Sometimes, they have done everything humanly possible but all efforts proved abortive.

Don’t judge them – blaming them for the breakdown of their marriage. The truth is that divorce is deeper than what we think it is. Sometimes, it has nothing to do with what your partner did but who you or them have become. So divorce is connected to mutations in identity and not mere flaws in their characters.

✔️NEVER mock a pain you
haven’t endured. Because when life hits you, you might become
everything you ever criticized.

Don’t let any stigma or the bondage of religion keep you in a union that assigned to kill you and your vision.
Walk away from any union where you’re abused emotionally, mentally, physically etc.
When a problematic marriage gets to the point where you have to choose between Death and Divorce. Please choose to be alive.

Shall we pray:
Father of light, uphold christian marriages, especially that of your servants worldwide. May the staff of the wicked assigned against their homes be broken in Jesus name.
Grant that grace be released for everyone who is hurting or in pain, heal their wounds and make them strong again.
