Our Keepsake Journal is Here! 🎉

Friend, I know how it feels.

Your heart used to skip and dance every time you heard his name.

The butterflies in your stomach went wild at the sound of his voice.

And those eyes . . . the way they seemed to look into your soul and say without words, “You are the most perfect one for me! I see no one else but you.”

He took your breath away and fulfilled every other romantic cliche.

Maybe he even cried at the stunning sight of you on your wedding day.

Just the thought of those brown, blue, gray, hazel, or green eyes gazing at anyone else the same mesmerizing way they did to you made you feel physically sick to your stomach.

RELATED: So, Your Husband Cheated On You. But What Did He Do Next?

You were so . . . SO in love with him. You believed him when he said you were the most beautiful woman in all the world. You set your heart on the hope that you’d always be the only one he chose.

You dared to wish and dream so many things, just with him.

But then the day came when the truth came out . . . and it all felt like a masquerade. And the castle you thought you were building together came crumbling down.

Every scenario is different, but any form of betrayal mars any lovely love story beyond recognition.

Friend, no human can heal your broken heart. But how I hope you’ll turn your eyes to the One who can.

When you face the darkness of another tear-stained night, let Jesus whisper these words to your heart on repeat:

You are chosen.
You are valued.
You are seen.
You are pursued
You are known.
You are cherished.
You are fought for.
You are never alone.

He is with you in the night when the echoing lies of loneliness and rejection are the loudest. He is with you as you face a future full of unknownschoices you never wanted to have to choose, boundaries you never thought you’d have to set.

He is the only One who can reset and restore your heart and your life after secrecy, lies, or betrayal threaten to steal all joy of living away.

Let Him be your life and cradle your heart.

In case you need to hear it: this wasn’t your fault, and it wasn’t something God caused. It was a choice outside your control. But Jesus has a way of making broken things beautiful, and He can do that for you.

He longs for healing even more than you do.

Remember His voice is Truth and His paths are peace.

RELATED: Tragedy Changes You, But it Doesn’t Have To Ruin You

Friend, betrayal is crushing. But you really can be OK again. Because your heart is safe with Him.

Right now, you may be right in the middle of your pain. But the beautiful thing about the middle is that it’s not the end. And the beautiful thing about Jesus is that He makes all things new.

So look to His eyes and trust in His heart.

And one day, as you feel the sun on your face and the breeze through your hair, you will know in the depths of your soul that you are eternally loved, wanted, chosen, and so much more.

Do you hear Jesus whispering now?

In the middle of this long, dark night let Him blanket you securely with His peace as you wait for the morning with Him.

Because morning will come. And as you rest in Him, His joy will come with it.

To the Wife Whose Husband Loves Another Woman www.herviewfromhome.com

Dear wife whose husband loves another woman, I loathed reading your story because I have been where you are. There is no pain in my life that compares to that of finding out about my husband’s affair. Notice, I said husband, not ex. We made it, and you can too! It wasn’t easy but it was worth it. I saw the comments on your article, so many well-meaning women who believe you are delusional or submissive. But I know you better than that. I know that you were blindsided, because I was, too. Like you, my husband is a man...

The Surprising Way Back to Trust After an Affair

The Surprising Way Back to Trust After an Affair www.herviewfromhome.com

When my husband confessed his affair everything seemed lost, broken, tainted, and ruined. Though devastated, my inexplicable inclination was to stay in our marriage even though I had no idea how to stay. The biggest roadblock on the steep, rocky footpath to staying was my trust in my husband had been obliterated in the blink of an eye and I was certain I’d never trust him again. I didn’t worry he’d cheat again anytime soon. I knew he was 100 percent remorseful and giving every ounce of himself to the saving of our marriage. I knew he’d wrecked himself as...
