How Travel Saved Our Marriage Part 2


Continuation from Part 1 so you wouldn’t feel like you were reading a book…

 

Going thru this again (2nd marriage, same situation) was a chance for me to see a restoration God.  He showed me how to not only forgive but how to forgive and love my husband better.

 

I’m not perfect at this thing called love. God continues to show me His perfect love and how to forgive.

Even in my feelings of betrayal and pain – I saw Him and felt His presence all over my life.  I heard the sweet sound of His voice saying….”I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”  “Cast your cares on me, I care.”  This was my moment to forgive as Christ forgave me – on that cross.

The scripture about Love bears ALL things, believes all things, hopes all things, ENDURES all things is true.  My relationship with Christ was strengthened and I’m now able to love harder – we are all sinners, saved by the grace of God.  It’s easy to hold on to hurts and focus on how you’ve been wronged.  Forgiveness is not easy but it’s necessary and it’s worth it.  Christ tells us to forgive just as He forgave us.

Thankful today to serve a God who hears, a God who is fully present, a God who I can trust with my whole being, a God who is real, a God who saves, a God who.RESTORES!

The scriptures below gave me hope:

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Zephaniah 3:17

The LORD your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Matthew 11:28

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Romans 8:35

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
*that (above) goes on to say…….*

Romans 8:37-39

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Philippians 4:6-7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Matthew 19:26

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’

Joyfully yours!
