Everyday What If?
Trust is a huge factor in a marriage relationship. Recently, I had this question from a woman who wrote, “What if the pain your husband has caused brings you to the place where you can’t trust him. He won’t ‘own up” to the hurt he’s caused?” She didn’t share the specific problem but the principle still applies, “if you focus only on your husband’s issues you can’t deal effectively with yours. As author Elizabeth Elliot said, "Remember, he married a sinner too."
Trust and reconciliation in a broken can be hard to restore. But we can’t forgive someone who’s causing us pain without the Holy Spirit’s help. John 20:22; “Breathe on me Holy Spirit to do what I cannot.” The Holy Spirit is in each of us who have received Christ as Savior and it’s only by His power stirred and working in our lives that we can truly forgive as He does. Praise Him, thank Him for His work in you and you can do the hard stuff… …everyday!
