Country singer Reba McEntire said that it was God who strengthened her so that she was able to overcome a painful divorce and to keep moving forward.

McEntire’s relationship with her former manager husband, Narvel Blackstock, came to an end after 10 years.

According to, McEntire didn’t want to get divorced, but chose to rely on God to get her through that difficult season of life.

She credited, “God, my girlfriends, my family, work and staying busy,” for allowing her to overcome the pain.

"Over the last two years I've been going through a divorce. God's way is the best way. And it seems to me that Narvel is happier and I'm in a really good state of mind. It's taken me this time to pull through why and how. And there's been a lot between us and I believe that to forgive is easier than forget," she told Parade magazine.

McEntire added that her faith gives her hope and helps her stay positive. "Going on with life is what's really important. And my faith helped me with that. I think about what God wants me to do. I focus on that. Faith is really important. It keeps me sane and it keeps me hopeful," she said.

McEntire is set on moving forward and not dwelling on past regrets. She just wants "everybody to be happy in their lives because our lives are too short to be miserable.”
