I’m going to shoot straight with you. I’ve never had to go through the divorce of my parents. I have no idea what it’s like or how hard it can be. However, I do have friends who have had to go through their parents’ divorce and I know that it’s not easy.

Because I don’t know what it’s like, I’m not going to write an article on divorce. Instead, I simply want to share with you 12 beautiful and comforting Bible verses.

If you or a friend have gone through or is currently going through divorce, these are for you.
