Hope & Healing After An Affair

Sharing is caring!

Healing-After-An-Affair

Healing after an affair is a process that will look different for every woman who walks down this beaten path. There are things we all share in common, but each of us has a different story to tell and different experiences to overcome. We all share pain, anger, grief, feelings of betrayal, and of course, more complicated insecurities than we had before our husbands cheated on us.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, I want you to know that I am here for you. I will pray for you and your family. I can also tell you that there is hope for healing after an affair because our God is the creator of life and if bringing a person back from the dead wasn’t too much for Him, He can revive your marriage.

I want to share some things with you, through a series of posts. It’s too much to write about in one sitting, but I want us to address some of the issues and concerns we face after our marriages have been branded by an affair.

Today, however, I want to share some verses with you. Verses to remind you, that we are not in this alone. We don’t have to have the answers; we don’t even have to do the work. God has the answers, God does the work, God is in control. These are the things I want you to say to yourself over and over again.

GOD IS IN CONTROL

There is nothing that has happened, or will happen that God could not have put a stop to, or changed in some way. Here you are. So for some reason, God allowed you to be in this place right now. A place where you are searching for hope and healing after an affair. Think about that for a minute.

If any of these verses especially touch your heart, print them out, and put them in a place where you will see them often and be reminded of His power.

Isaiah-48-18
Psalm-135-6
Ephesians-1-11
Isaiah-40-23
Isaiah-43-18
Romans-8-28
Romans-11-36
Proverbs 16-9

What do these verses mean to you today? Do you understand that God is sovereign? Do you understand that he could have stopped your husband from having an affair? Do you know that he could have stopped you from treating your husband in ways that you feel may have attributed to that affair? He is faithful. He allowed you to do what you did; he allowed your husband to do what he did.

Maybe you understand that God is sovereign, but you want to know Why did God allow my husband to cheat? – Let’s take a look at that now.

I just found out my husband of almost 20 years cheated on my for the 3rd time. I can’t sleep nor eat. Why do I still want to stay? I caught him red handed and it’s he’s upset supposedly out of shame And guilt. Now he doesn’t now if he wants to stay or leave. I know we grew apart and lead separate lives I don’t know what to do! I don’t want a divorce but if God thinks I need to. Then I must ask God to give Me strength and peace.

My husband had an affair in March that lasted until September. He filed for divorce in March. We are still married. He is back home but saying he needs to fix him before anything else. That he wants the divorce. I am so lost and hurt. I don't know what to do.

I just found out that my husband has been talking to a girl at his work behind my back and had asked her to go out with him. She declined but after I found out he still lied to my face until I showed him the proof I had. Now he says he’s sorry and it won’t happen again, but this isn’t the first time he’s emotionally cheated. My heart is torn and I feel so inadequate. I pray multiple times every day for him to come back to God, as his entire lifestyle has changed since he walked out of the church. Please pray for God to transform his heart and give him Godly character. And please pray for my marriage.
