I know a lot will think this does not need to be discussed on here but I see a world where people are dying spiritual, where marriages are being destroyed and lives are lost. We cannot just see the pretty in life and never deal with the hard issues and that is why I am sharing this.
Secrets kept only destroy our lives. I have lived in a world of secrets kept to keep from hurting my church and others around me but the secrets only left emptiness and pain in my heart and I know an emptiness in him . He had an issue of looking at other women, at pornographic images and when confronted said, “It’s not hurting you if it’s wrong then it only hurts me, I’ll be the one to answer for it!” This statement is so untrue! Anytime you look at such images you are destroying those around you causing them to feel less of a person and undermining any trust they have in the relationship. In the end it will destroy you and the relationship completely. He said he would stop and did at times but would eventually go back to it because we never got the help we needed. I also want to admit my part I began to withdraw from him and I feel looking back this only made our problems worse. I wish so much that we could have went to Christian counceling but he wasn’t willing. He wants to move on and I know I have to. The Lord wants us to be pure in our mind, body, and spirit. Jesus said no sin shall enter into heaven. Please pray for those who are dealing with this addiction. They are spiritually sick and don’t even realize it. Also pray for the spouses of those in these kind of relationships, pray God gives them the wisdom and strength they need to walk through it. I see things I wish I had done differently but its to later now for us. It’s hard sharing this but I pray sharing helps someone out there. Maybe it will help someone else save their marriage.
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
