Finding Strength In The Midst of Disappointment

Lisa Terkeust, founder of Proverbs 31 Ministry and author wrote this blog during her wilderness experience, the time between the promise and its fulfillment. We all know what happened in the end (Genesis 50:20). She’ll talk a lot about forgiveness. In 2017, TerKeurst announced publicly that she was separating from her husband, Art, and pursuing a divorce because of his infidelity and substance abuse.

There are two parts, so make sure you watch them both.

“Many people think Proverbs 31 is a picture of a perfect woman; but the Proverbs 31 woman is, at her core, someone who seeks the Lord in everything she does and trusts Him wholeheartedly with her life. Our mission is to meet women where they are in the real, hard places we all experience, and to intersect God’s Word right there. We are simply a group of women sold out to saying yes to God—and He truly does the rest.” Lisa Terkeurst

The announcement about Lysa TerKeurst’s marriage you probably didn’t hear. What does the word “restoration” mean to you? We serve a God who does the impossible! He is a miracle working God!

About a year ago, Proverbs 31 Ministries head Lysa TerKeurst announced that due to her husband Art’s infidelity and lack of repentance, she had no other option to but to seek a divorce. Her shocking announcement went viral, but was mostly met with love, prayers, and support from her followers.

So, imagine my surprise when I learned two days ago that Lysa TerKeurst and Art TerKeurst were back together, and were moving forward with their marriage. December 2018, she and her husband reconciled and renewed their vows

”No person’s rejection of me can ever exempt me from God’s love for me.”

How did I find out? It was through Lysa’s Instagram this morning (12-Dec). Lysa made the announcement herself. “How could I have missed that?” I asked myself

“A gift. A hard prayed for and fought for, glorious, messy, miraculous, honest, treasured gift of together. Happy Father’s Day Art! The way you have pursued the Lord, healing, and us… is evidence of God’s supernatural grace and goodness. I’m praying for everyone praying for a miracle today. God has a plan but it will probably unfold in a way you never thought it would.” – Lysa
