    Friend In Marital Trouble

    Post  Paeter on June 20th 2017, 9:59 am

    The marriage of a friend of mine recently went into a nose dive. A big mess on both sides. Between the two of them they've got long term breakdowns in communication, unhealthy approaches to finances, a lack of forgiveness, unhealthy sexual relationship, pornography and even flirting with the idea of an affair. They have kids and are now separated but living under the same roof as they both get individual counseling as well as couples counseling.

    I think for at least one if not both of them this is an experience that is breaking and humbling them. I'm praying that both will be humbled and stay in that humbled space so they can experience the tireless forgiveness of God and really be unburdened and start healing.

    I'd appreciate your prayers for them and their kids.

    Thanks you guys. A pastor and I met with him recently and plan to keep that up. He's also meeting with another group of guys on top of the counseling. He seems to be in a good starting position but it will be a long haul even in the best case scenario. I'll be sure to let you know if there are any other milestones that could use extra prayer. Thanks again.

    Ugh, that sucks. But it reminds me that I almost screwed up my marriage through some of those things, but by the grace of God (and some good Christian counselling) we pulled it together again. There is a reason our youngest daughter's middle name is Hope...

    Anyway, praying as someone who's been there, knows it's a horrible place to be, but knows some battles are worth fighting.

    Prayers for reconciliation and healing. My church back home had a situation a while back where someone on staff admitted to cheating on his wife. He had to be fired, of course, but the good news is that they both stayed at the church, and through no small feat, they're still together to this day. It can happen!

    Wow. That's God's grace in ACTION! Amazing. Thanks for sharing that encouragement!
