Q:

I thought I was making the right move when I dumped my husband and moved in with another man a couple of years ago. But now he's thrown me out, my ex-husband has remarried, my kids don't want anything to do with me, and I'm left out in the cold. How could I have been so stupid? I hope others learn from my experience.


A:

I also hope others will learn from your experience, because the road you’ve gone down might look very tempting to them, but (as you’ve discovered) the devil never delivers what he promises. He promises happiness and freedom and excitement but only delivers heartache, slavery and emptiness.

However, as I’ve often said, one of life’s hardest lessons is that we cannot change the past. If you had it to do over again, you’d almost certainly not make the decisions you made. Instead, you’d have done everything you could to keep your marriage together. But you chose to go your own way, and now you’re suffering the consequences. The Bible warns, “Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control” (Proverbs 25:28).

You can’t change the past, but with God’s help you can change the future. God loves you in spite of the way you’ve ignored Him and wants to forgive you and help you get your feet on the right path. Turn to Him and ask Christ to cleanse you and direct you.

I can’t promise everything will suddenly change, but I can promise this: God will be with you, and He will help you as you yield yourself to Him every day. Don’t go down the wrong road again, but commit your life to Christ today.

    My Girlfriend left me one day on my return from a business trip. I paid for ALL her expenses her house, car ,etc… , I found out by visiting her house ,she said she was sick, and found another man there. Now she refuses to talk or even see me face to face. My heart is crushed and I feel used, betrayed and cheated on. PLZ pray for me.

    Same thing happened in our family after parents married 47 years with four children. Our Mom is living with another man. Our dad is living alone grieving himself to death and has some dementia now. Our family is torn apart.
