Sexually betrayed spouses can find peace, hope, security, and direction when they identify where they are in the big picture of the recovery process and make steady, upward progress.
God and his Son defined and exemplified a compassionate, boundary-rich love for us, the same love a sexual addict’s spouse is compelled and empowered to have even for an unrepentant partner.
When our spouse is addicted to sexual sin, the most loving thing we can do for them and ourselves is to shut up, get out of the way, focus on our own healing, and let God work.
Only when we reach the bottom of our pain threshold and share in Jesus’ suffering can we find, enjoy, and thrive in Christ as the fathomless treasure of wisdom, knowledge, and peace.
Seeking strength from God’s infinite power and faithfulness rather than looking to ourselves to be strong is the only way we can patiently endure the trials of this life.
