Many relationships face difficult moments. Strong couples experience a drought in their marriage or misunderstanding. You don't need to be a person of faith to acknowledge that temptations show up to test where you stand, and opposition shows up from unexpected places. Work, bills and providing for a growing family, including children, changes the dynamics of your relationship.
The search begins to find your way out of the desert and back into the cool waters of life.
Where did I mess up? How can I fix this? Have I done all I can to make it work? A person who prays may go into times of prayer, asking the Lord to make them the person their husband or wife needs. They pray for their spouse and ask the Lord to work in their hearts and minds. Sadly, their counterpart remains unmoved, unmotivated, and too involved in themselves to see what everyone else sees.
Only God can change people. We cannot. Only a person that wants to change and devote themselves to their spouse knows the truth behind their apologies. Find someone who will help you make the right decisions through this moment of great change in your life. Know that if you trust the Lord to see you through, He will and He will be with you always. Healing will come as you allow your heart to forgive, not blame yourself. Regain your self worth by remembering how amazing, special and wonderful you have always been and that you are so worthy of being loved.
There is shame only in the person that has dealt wrongfully towards you, used you, abandoned and hurt you. Life has been on hold, on stand by. Don't allow lack of forgiveness, hurts and bitterness to become your next relationship. Forgive and move on. You may not forget, but healing will come if you trust the Lord to renew and restore you.
Opening the door and walking towards freedom is new life in the making.
