Turmoil and Injury Healed

From the December 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

During a period of great turmoil in my life following a painful divorce, I was struggling to regain a sense of peace. Newly single, but with a new full-time job and three children under the age of twelve, I was faced with both responsibility and the opportunity for spiritual growth, yet, at the time, the spiritual growth I yearned for seemed all but impossible as I found it difficult to feel connected to God, or to pray, because of the shame I was feeling over my inability to save the marriage.
