My Goal for this blog
I have no doubt that any stranger reading this blog could assume I might be going to these great lengths to pursue my wife and “win” her back. But anyone believing that would be mistaken. Do I want her back? That is a better question to ask me. And my answer would be a resounding, “No! Not with who she is today.” My wife is lost in her sin. However if she were to humble herself before God, honor her covenant, and there was evidence of this then yes… It comes down to one simple promise of God.
Romans 8: 28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.”
In my pain and loss how can anything “good” come out of this? Well God is soverign and does not lie. I know I have been called to His purpose… I know I love God… so in my situation I am promised that something “good” will come from this. God doesn’t promise “some” things, but “all” things.
I have some very specific goals in taking the time to put all this together.
1) To glorify God by sharing His guidance and Word through my testimony.
2) To encourage others with marital issues to not give up.
3) To be an example to my daughter of what real love is.
4) To be an example to my wife of what God’s everlasting and persistent love is like.
I think so many couples are too quick to give up. They get selfish or hurt or tired, completely ignoring the sacred covenant made between God and the parties involved. If we would just understand the seriousness and weight of how God looks at a covenant relationship I don’t doubt so many would stop in their tracks. This blog is for them. This blog is for the hurt and desperate spouse looking for answers. I can’t say I have even close to all the answers. All I can offer is my story of what I have had to endure. It’s my prayer the Holy Spirit will do the rest.
