My very dear friend is living a nightmare! She has realized her husband of more than a decade is a stranger to her. She has uncovered a secret life full of deceit, sin and lies! Her world has crumbled around her and she is sitting amongst the ruins with her precious children!!
She and I have spent hours combing through phone records and calling numbers that were unfamiliar. We have uncovered quite a bit including a mistress. Yesterday my friend called the mistress and they talked for 30 minutes. My friend, who has been so betrayed but SO loves Jesus, PRAYED with her husband's mistress that she would come to understand her only hope for true love and significance is in Jesus!!!!!
The girl was weeping!!! She told my friend she had never met anyone like her!!! She told her that she would like to meet her and be able to apologize to her face-to-face!! My friend said that she has to find a way to have some redemptive value from all she has gone through and if it means helping the adulteress see she needs Jesus then that is enough!!!
I am so proud of my friend and so thankful for the path she is choosing to follow in all this! She does desire to obey the Lord and see Him glorified even though she realizes there is virtually no hope for her marriage! I want to be like my friend when I grow up!
2 Corinthians 1:12For our proud confidence is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially toward you.
