Christian music star Israel Houghton announces divorce after 20 years of marriage

In today's society, divorce has become a common practice. Unfortunately, Christians are not immune from this scourge.

srael Houghton, one of the greatest figures of contemporary gospel, announces his divorce, after 20 years of marriage with Meleasa Houghton with whom he had three children. He admits to having "fallen and sinned in his marriage".

Israel Houghton is the worship leader for Joel Osteen's Church, Lakewood Church. Recall that the cantor has already won several awards, including five Grammy Awards and thirteen Dove Awards. He is also the author of several songs of praise, translated into several languages ​​and taken up in churches, such as " You are Alpha and Omega "," Your presence is heaven to me ", or " Hosanna in the highest ».

It is on his Facebook page that he officially announces that his divorce has been pronounced. He talks about this upheaval in his life like this:

Even though we tried, the trials in our relationship were too great to overcome… I am in a process of restoration and I have repented of my actions. Even though I am sincerely sorry, and have been forgiven, I just realize that I will live with the consequences of my faults for the rest of my life. As this has become a public topic, I want to apologize to all who have supported my ministry over the years. Israel Houghton therefore emphasizes his sincere repentance, but also the consequence of his actions for himself, and all those around him.

Nowadays, marriage is the first target of the enemy because it is the very basis of the balance of society. It is therefore important in the home to maintain the relationship of love as a couple, but also a personal relationship with God. In a society shattered by divorce, Christians must stand up and watch to make a difference. Let us not forget that God is a maker of marriages, but also a restorer of marriages, if we accept to give everything to Him.

Do not hesitate to view the story of this restored couple on this video.
