Thanks so much for the welcome. I am happy I found this web site. I need brothers and sisters in Christ to join with me in prayer for my husband. He claims salvation but is involved in an extra marital affair. He presented me with divorce papers this past week.
I am taking one day at a time and each day acknowledging that Jesus is Lord over this situation/my husband.
At times my emotions take over and I need to remind myself of His Word. It will be nice sharing God and His love with felloe believers.
May God hold you in His arms today for I know what it feels like, been there done that, thing!! But no one will know the hurt you are going through if they haven't been there!!!Just remember that God is in control and we will pray for you that God will touch your husbands life and that he will fully submit to Him. I will pray that God will destroy his schemes and confuse their tongues so that he will turn to Him!
BE strong my friend we are here for you!
Ma-How right you are! Those are the words I was gropping for: just like the builders of Babel of old, our prayer is that God will destroy Karen's husband's schemes and confuse their tongues so that he miraculously turns to Him!
Our god is able, ma! I know you speak from experience coz you have been there. i don't envy you! But even I, though I havent been there, I can feel the sting! To imagine my Mary turning an ogre!! God protect the family unit!
Thanks...you are a true comrade in arms and I am certain our prayers will be answered. Love you-Your son
Dear sister, how my heart hurts for you .You are in such a horrible place rite now and I have been through much the same except i wasnt married to the guy,we lived together for 10 yrs and suddenly out of the blue he told me it was over and walked out.I didnt know God at the time and i almost had a breakdown from the grief i felt.It seemed like hed died it was so shocking.Please remember these words Karen theyre from your heavenly father to his precious daughter;
I know when you sit down and when you riseup...ps 13.139:2
I am familiar with all your ways ps.139:3
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered matt.10:29-31
For you were made in my image Gen.1:27
I knew you,my precious daughter,even before you were conceived Jer.1:4-5
I chose you when i planned creation Eph.111-12
Iam able to do morefor you than you could possibly imagine Eph:3:20
When you are broken hearted,I am close to you ps34:18
Karen when my marriage of 4 whole weeks broke up over 10 yrs ago i howled at God,but He wrapped his arms around me so tightly i couldnt breathe,He rocked me like i was a baby and He didnt let me go.He kept everlasting arms round me and still does when i need Him He cries with you, when you do, He hates to see his children in turmoil it hurts Him so.Please take care, im more than willing to help you in any way i can ill pray every day for you and encourage you when you need it day or night dont hesitate
I am so sorry, but know this, God will give you strength, trust in Him and lean hard on His Word! Your husband is certainly lost, I can relate, mine just filed for divorce last week as well. Its been extremely heartbreaking and beyond belief, but I have relied heavily on God and my friends, and He is already showering me with more peace and comfort than I ever thought I would have again; His strength and mercy are so real, believe in that and hang on. Its what I do every day, sometimes 5 minutes at a time, but it works.
Father God I pray for Karen Johnson tonight that you will minister to her heart and bring her comfort that you alone can give her. Help her in her brokenness to know that you are near. thank you for your word. I pray that as she listens to this song from Psalm 91 that you will help her to see that you are her hiding place, a shelter from the storm. In Jesus name amen
Karen dear-This is truly what is stated and we thank Brother bob for it: AN EMERGENCY ROOM. The only difference is that we the operators (just like you) have a direct line to God through Christ Jesus who remains above all, in all and through all! Being the believer you are, choose to stand by James 1:2-4 and "count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire WANTING NOTHING!" You have chosen to start well my sister...taking one day at a time! Christ has guranteed He is going to be Lord over that situation/your husband, as you have prayed. He knows we are frail, my sister.
I always used to shudder at the thought of love turning sour to the point that one would wish to divorce or be separated from the other. How could LOVE turn to scathing HATE? This was until I was led of the spirit of the Lord to the root cause: Matt 13:28...why, oh why, must this be so? 'An enemy hath done this' sowing tares in the good garden the lord hath planted! Karen, we have uncovered the enemy, it is the devil, hallelujah!! We now command him to be defeated in the name of JESUS. We pray that your husbands eyes might be opened to see just what he is about to lose, divorce papers or not! Please pray for him...and continue loving him in your heart. Even suppose he will go ahead with the divorce (if this is God's will for you), let this not affect your love for Christ. Choose to stand by this wonderful words ever written "Let the king have sixty queens, eighty concubines, young women without number! But I love ONLY ONE, and she is...LOVELY" (Song Of Songs 6:8, 9 TEV). I want to confide in you a secret: whether we are married or not-as the saved-our true love remains only one: JESUS CHRIST! If Christ were to divorce me today, I would whine and whimper...but I thank God He told us nothing can separate us from His love.
Trust in the Lord Karen...and during this difficult moment, know that God's saints are standing by you. We are praying for a miraculous turn-around! Though I have never been divorced or separated, I always think that this is the worst catastroph that can ever befall a person. Divorce tears apart all self-worth and trust. But I thank God that through Christ, we have overcome all. God bless you and it will be interesting to see how this shapes out. I know the outcome will be for His GLORY. Be strengthened and refreshed and...keep us all posted. In Christ-Pst. Bernhard.
Karen-Am right back here again. God just led me to this verse when I was praying over your problem. He knows you by name...you are His present day Israel. He says: "ISRAEL, the LORD who created you says 'Don't be afraid -I will save you. I have called you by name -you are mine. When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. For I am the LORD your God, the holy God of Israel, who saves you. I will give up Egypt to set you free; I will give up Ethiopia and Seba. I will give up whole nations to save your life, because you are precious to me and because I love you and give you honor. Do not be afraid -I am with you! `From the distant east and the farthest west I will bring your people home. I will tell the north to let them go and the south not to hold them back. Let my people return from distant lands, from every part of the world. They are my own people, and I created them to bring me glory.'" Isaiah 43:1-7.
God will bring back your husband to you. It is time to celebrate and choose to BELIEVE His word and not the impossibilities the devil wants you to buy. Let's all smile for He has won!-Pst. Bernhard
Thanks to my son Pst Bernhard for encouraging you. He is such a precious child of our heavenly Father and really a brother who cares so much!
Can I add: my first husband left me for my friend, i was devasted by the whole issue! We, the children and i left and i went to my parents. I joined a church who carry me through this episode, and I started to pray for my husband I prayed him into the kingdom, so i felt. It worked i went back to him, but sorry to say I stopped praying for this for i thought i was back where i belong and believe it wasn't necesary, (how stupid can a person be) Well 5 months afterwards we were back at my parents for i lost my husband to my friend for real. I pray for you that God will restore your marriage and that your husbands heart will be turned to God and that He will repent and break this for it is only God who can do this. Remember nothing is impossible for God and nothing to big for Him to handle. Please attend your church and have fellowship with them, feed yourself with positive word and positive people and if you can forgive God can restore!! Do not make the fault I made for surely i would prefer to have it over but to have the insight that i have now and pray and believe God more!!!
Let God heal and restore you and let Him guide you. Start praising God for His joy is our strenght and He can restore what the devil is trying to steal from you!
May you be blessed and remember we are here for you! Nienie
karen, don't let loneliness ruined your life. I know how hard and difficult to be left by someone you love so much. But always remember that you are God's most treasured possessions and loves you so much that he gave his son Jesus Christ for your sake.If he gave his only son for you, God can also give you back your husband, becoz God doesn't want to see you in a horible situation, grieving in pain, for God himself is also grieving. Just put your complete trust to God and just continue serving him and let God be in full control of your problem. Don't carry your burden, Let God carry it! His servant ; Pastor George
I am in crisis right now. It is a long story, but my wife's cousin has driven a wedge between us, leading her to another man before beginning an affair with her himself. She has moved out and taken my daughters into his home. He is dangerous and unstable, and there is a strong possibility that he may have molested his own daughter. I am fighting through the courts now to bring my daughters home, but it is a very long process and I find myself at times very discouraged. I am at a loss as to what to do regarding my spouse and my marriage. I want salvation for her, and I want protection for my children. I have read the scriptures and believe that God wants me to work to save this marriage. I just don't know if I will be able to get past the lies, the deceit, the broken trust, the infidelity, and the pain that she has caused myself and my daughters. She says she doesn't want the marriage anyway, that she doesn't love me and never loved me. I don't believe this, as we have been married for five years and known each other for 11+. She has been deceived and her cousin has manipulated and now controls her. It saddens me to see someone who I thought was strong fall to such a state. I pray for her many times a day, and I pray for my children as much as I can. I fear for the damage my wife is doing to herself, but there is no talking to her now as she is wrapped up in sin. I ask for prayer for my wife, for deliverance and salvation for her. I ask for prayers of protection for my daughters and for prayer that they be delivered back to a safe and healthy home. I also ask for prayers of strength for me, as I do get discouraged. I believe that God is working through this; it is in His time, which frustrates me, but I also know that he knows what needs to be done and when it needs to be completed. Any support during this time would be appreciated. Thank you.
