Just over a week ago, my world as I knew it was destroyed by betrayal. I learned that my husband was involved in an affair with a friend of ours. An affair that he refuses to give up. There are no signs of remorse or desire to do the right thing. His only desire is to end our marriage as quickly as possible.
It's a daily....hourly struggle to focus on my faith, on Christ's love and truth instead of the anger and pain.
I worry about how this will affect my children. Right now they are angry, hurt and asking lots of questions that I can't answer for them. I worry that the trauma will overwhelm them and cause them to run from God. But I have hope. Just small little signs that they are drawing closer to their heavenly Father.
One of those signs was my youngest sharing a 3 minute message at youth group on Sunday night. When I asked him what his topic was, he said "Hope". The verse that he used was Job 11:18. "And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security."
In the midst of Satan trying to destroy our family, we can rest in the security of our relationship with Christ. He is our rock. He is our refuge. He is our strength. He is our hope.
