I moderate every comment before each is posted. I do this because I want to read them all and not miss any of your words. Last week, my inbox was inundated with notifications that there were comments “awaiting moderation”. Tears poured down my face as I read through the comments you posted. Comments of encouragement overwhelmed me. Joy flooded my soul. True joy. The kind that wells up inside you and you realize that it really is all about Him. Thank you for that. If you took any time to read the comments, in addition to the encouraging comments, you would have also read that there are people who are truly hurting and don’t have the faintest idea what the next step is in their marriages. Should they stay? Should they leave? My philosophy is that it takes two. In order for any marriage to even be successful, it takes two committed individuals. If your marriage was or is currently in shambles like mine was, it takes two people who are willing to do whatever it takes in order to salvage the marriage relationship. Nothing less. If only one party wants is willing and desires to see it restored, the likelihood that the marriage will survive is slim. Hard to hear but from what I’ve seen in the other hurting marriages that are around me, it’s true. I have many friends who have walked the road Chris and I have. Some of their spouses were willing to lay down their lives and work hard to resuscitate the marriage. Some were not. While God is amazing at restoration, He is also very brilliant with new beginnings.
