9 months and 5 days ago I posted my story. After 31 years of marriage, God began to reveal to me my husband's sex addiction. He had been an addict for 40 years. Our entire marriage had been nothing but a lie! My life was shattered.,,,,but, the story doesn't end there! We are going to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary on November 5th. That is the day we stood before God on a mountain top and said our vows to each other. The day that we became "one" in the sight of God!~ You see, we had never been as the Bible says, "and the two shall be as one" because there had ALWAYS been a third person in our marriage. Today, by the healing power of Christ, our marriage is whole. There is still a third person in our marriage but this time it's Christ!!!! I can't even begin to tell you what the Lord has done for us. He brought to life the scripture that says, "I came to heal the broken hearted and to set the captive free". We just recently moved to a new town and I am the happiest I have ever been. I have a new home, (we closed on it Sept 16, which was exactly 1 year to the day my life blew apart) in a new city, with a new man. Isn't God good! How did we do it???? I loved him to completion as Christ asked me to do. God was always quick to remind me that if I was to be a reflection of Him, I had to forgive my husband. And he was willing to turn his ENTIRE body, mind and soul over to the Lord. I am in the beginning stages of starting a support group for women that have been hurt by their husband's sexual sin. There are so few places for a woman to go when she's desperate to find hope. Our new church is on fire and ready to support me. My husband has such a heart to work in men's ministry's and to have one that really deals with the heart of men's issues, not just eat pancakes! I'm telling you all this to let you know that it can be done! A marriage can be healed and an addict can be set free! We are living proof!!!! Addict, remember, the only power Satan has over you is the hidden truth! And spouse, remember, but for the grace of God, the addict could be you! May God richly bless each and every one of you!
