Divorce is painful. Most Christians do not march to the marriage altar with a backup plan. When a union is broken it often leaves individuals feeling angry, empty, hurt, and embarrassed. Some feel ostracized by their friends, family, church, and even God. The Lord has promised to heal the brokenhearted and save those who are crushed in spirit (Psalms 34:18). God hates divorce, but He still loves the divorced person!

In Single Again and Secure in God’s Love, author Jim Smoke acknowledges that divorce is traumatic, ?it’s a foreign country with different rules, regulations, and road signs. It’s a place where your heart is broken and your spirit is crushed. But there is hope!? Through a series of brief inspirational meditations, Smoke offers practical biblical applications to soothe the hurting soul.

This short book is easy to read and beautifully illustrated. The reader will also find inspiring quotes on every page.

I enthusiastically recommend the book to anyone who has experienced the trauma of a broken marriage and who longs to find healing and wholeness through Christ.
