If you are going to heal and find freedom for yourself on this journey, you need to be able to look at truth squarely in the eye and seek God’s counsel on how to respond to the reality of your situation. If you deny the truth, you may naively put yourself back into a dangerous and harmful situation, entrusting your heart and body to your husband too soon. If you try to manipulate or change the truth, you may prolong the work God wants to do in your husband’s life. If you stay angry at the reality of your husband’s spiritual and emotional condition, then you become an ally of the enemy, helping him to do his work rather than yielding to the work of God in your life.
