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.
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.
