The Real Battlefield

Dealing with your former spouse can be difficult. It can be exhausting. It can be very overwhelming. It can even feel useless at times. I liken it to being on a continual battlefield with arrows coming from all directions, not knowing which war you’re going to have to fight next.  Sometimes it may feel like you are constantly watching for incoming bombs and arming yourself for a quick counter attack.

As difficult as this may be I would like you to consider a different battlefield. A spiritual battle between good and evil.  Satan’s #1 goal is to destroy families. And whether you are still married or not, if you share children, you are still a family. I would challenge you to consider that much of what you are dealing with may be Satan’s way of continuously bringing you down, causing continual hurt and stress on your children and definitely preventing you from healing and moving forward.

When this happens the parent who is being attacked often feels that because of the influence the other parent has on the children, they start to believe what they are saying is true and agree that because the marriage failed they are bad people and cannot be a good parent.
