Abundance after divorce

When I went through a divorce a number of years ago, I tried to keep myself above the fray, above the suggestions of fear, lack, and loneliness, but it was difficult at best. One of my greatest fears was that I would have to pay my ex-wife a substantial amount of money each month for the rest of her life, and then I wouldn’t have enough for myself or any future family I might have. I also thought of the home I was going to lose, the debt I was going to be burdened with, and the friends I was going to go without. I envisioned myself alone, broke, and broken.

As time went by and my fears hadn’t diminished, I called a Christian Science practitioner for prayerful help. I don’t recall everything she said or the quotes she read to me from the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, but I do recall her telling me that I needed to be the love, strength, and abundance I wanted to experience in my life—that I needed to stop giving in to fear and speculation about what my life might look like after the divorce. 

I made a commitment right then to love my ex-wife without reservation, to do everything I thought was right, and to help her regardless of what mortal mind was telling me it would do to my circumstances. I determined to express all of the love, honor, abundance, and humility I knew were an unbreakable part of me as an individual expression of God.
