    Melvin, how I wish I could believe this sentiment. I divorced my husband of 15 years in 1991. He remarried one year later and is now celebrating a longer marriage with her than we had. I, on the other hand, was so devastated that I couldn’t make our marriage work, that I swore off men for over 15 years. Now I am 65 and totally alone. I have tried dating sites, date companies and spent thousands of dollars but cannot seem to commit to anyone. No one works for me. What have I done that was so wrong that God would want me to be alone in my golden years. I still have a lot of love to give and need to be loved in return. At a Loss

      I’m under the belief that what’s in our hearts, whether pain, unresolved issues and unforgiveness, could prevent us from experiencing God’s best.

      If we are holding on to something from the past, we’ll bring in the same mindset and hurtful feelings into a new situation. To experience the new, we have to be completely free, mentally and emotionally, to someone else. If not, those unresolved feelings will resurface and recreate the situations you left.

      God doesn’t hold good things from us intentionally. But holding on to something from the past could delay what or who God wants to bless us with.

      Is there something you’re still holding on from that marriage?

      Why did you divorce him?

      How does it make you feel that he remarried not too long after you divorce, and now he’s happily married?

      Perhaps the answers to those question may lead to what’s still in your heart.
