He opens up about going through a difficult divorce. How do you pick up the pieces and move forward? What he discovers is simple, but beautiful.
When a marriage ends, it’s so painful and messy and disorienting… My prayer was broken. My belief was broken. My worship was broken and I couldn’t make those things work…
Each night of the tour… they would open it up for an alter call… we as the artists would go around and pray for people. And I thought, “Man, I don’t know how to do that… I don’t know how prayer works anymore because the one thing I prayed the hardest about didn’t work out…” I decided instead of hiding out in my bunk… I’m gonna go down and pray for people. I don’t know how that’s going to work… but I want to be present to this.
I felt so encouraged in that – as if God was saying, “I still have good work for you to do.” For anyone going through that… “the initiative against despair is to arise and do the next thing.”
