Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting divorced … The couple filed divorce docs a while ago, and a judge is expected to officially end their 4 year marriage today. We’re told Blake is the one who filed. We’re also told all the financial arrangements have been worked out … made easy by the fact that they have a prenup.
The divorce was filed in Oklahoma. Our sources say he will get the ranch in Oklahoma and she’ll get the family home in Nashville. Our sources say Miranda has been moving her show animals — horses, a camel and a llama — off the ranch in the last few days.
The couple says, “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
Blake’s famously talked about falling in love with Miranda in 2005, when they performed a duet of “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma.”

Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, Mark 10:43
Pilate had an opportunity to acquit Jesus of any wrongdoing, but instead he called for a basin and washed his hands of the entire matter. His attitude was, ‘I’m not getting involved.’ And a lot of people have that same attitude. But not Jesus. The night before His death He called for a basin of water and washed His disciples’ feet. He taught them: ‘Whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant’ (Mark 10:42-43). Peter objected because foot-washing was a duty designated to the lowest servant in Middle Eastern households, and he considered it beneath Christ’s dignity. Catherine Marshall writes: ‘We, the disciples, are to be the servants, I want to insist along with Peter. But Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me” (John 13:8). This is a stunning and stupendous thought. Unless I can believe in this much love for me, unless I can and will accept Him by faith as my servant as well as my God, unless I can truly know that it’s my good He seeks…then I cannot have His companionship.’ This is so contrary to the world’s philosophy where everybody wants to lead and nobody wants to serve. But to be like Jesus is to be a servant, for that’s what He called Himself. Never have goals so lofty that they blind you to the needs of those around you. Without a servant’s heart, you’ll be tempted to use your gift for personal gain, or to exempt yourself from areas you consider beneath you. The truth is, the only way to serve God is by serving those He loves.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, Help me have Your heart a serving heart that sees the need in others. In Your Precious Name, Amen
