When I first found out about my husbands affair, I was so lost, and I felt so totally alone. It wasn't till about a year and a half after D-Day that I finally turned to God. I wasn't getting any better and my marriage wasn't getting any better either. I wanted a daily devotional to help me through what I was struggling with. I search the Internet for hours but couldn't find a single daily devotional for those suffering from their spouse's affair.
I mean really, if this effects close to 60% or more of marriages wouldn't you think there would be a daily devotional on it? It's such a devastating event in ones life but nothing. There are ones for grief, divorce, for couples, for marriage, but nothing specifically for infidelity!
After searching for a few months I started to get thoughts of writing them myself. I knew that there were people out there suffering and would love something like this but I"m not a writer. In fact, I HATE to write. I feel like I can't and I feel like what I have to say others really don't want to read. I struggled with the thought of I should write a devotional and telling myself that I couldn't for 2 years!
I feel it was God telling me that I should write this and I was telling Him "NO" for 2 years! I wrote a friend and asked if she knew of any daily devotional for those suffering from their spouse's infidelity and she didn't know of any either. She said she would try and write some herself, but she was so busy with her work that she just didn't have the time.
Finally at the end of August 2008 I started writing them myself. I had no idea how hard it was going to be! I did about 7 and I had no idea where to go from there. I felt I had covered everything! But, I kept at it! Now it's almost a year later and I'm half done with the book. I have 90 daily devotions done and when I get to 180 I will be publishing them as a book.
My goal is the have them done and published by this fall. I am calling them "Godly Whispers" and I have the first two months available as daily emails if you like. Just know that you are not alone in this journey, and I am more than willing to help anyone who is hurting and needs someone to talk to!
Do you want your pain and devastation to go away? Would you like to have a happy marriage again? Then please consider adding daily devotions to your daily routine. Don't go through this pain any longer than you absolutely have to. Nothing can do more for your wealth, health, children, career success and overall happiness than not only healing your marriage, but also making it a happy and heartfelt one.
