LILY Letter 154: Relationships & Holy Week

March 28, 2024

We hope this letter finds you in a place of peace and reflection as we observe Holy Week, a time when we remember the profound sacrifices of our Lord Jesus Christ. Some of you may currently be facing complexities in your relationships and perhaps the possibility of divorce, a decision that carries significant emotional and spiritual weight. In these moments of uncertainty, we encourage you to seek solace and guidance in the teachings of our Savior.

As we reflect on the events of Holy Week, let us recall the anguish and surrender of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, where He prayed, "Not my will, but thine, be done" (Luke 22:42). This act of ultimate submission reminds us of the power of God in our lives, even in the most trying circumstances. In your contemplation, consider the principles of love that Christ exemplified throughout His ministry. Sometimes divorce turns out to be the most loving thing, and at other times, staying and recommitting is the better most loving path. We are grateful that we have heavenly guidance for such important choices.

As a follower of Christ, lean on the strength and wisdom He provides. The Apostle Paul reminds us that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1). In this Holy Week, may you find comfort in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus and hope in the resurrection. May His love guide you to a path of peace and clarity in your decisions regarding your closest relationships.

With heartfelt prayers for your journey,

Jeff & Cathy Teichert
