I'm quickly reminded after an evening with other betrayed women, that the devil is never at rest. Satan is always at work to kill, destroy and separate us from Christ's purpose and greater plan.
Years of meeting with women has finally taught me to not take their pain home as I grieve with them and feel the pain from the lies, deceit and confusion of satan's craftiness. But, seeing a young wife with tears hanging from her eyelids and again receiving news that yet another marriage has fallen prey to the evil one, can only leave me to feel their pain.
There is no perfect solution.
There is and will be no stopping this from happening to another union.
As long as the devil is walking, deceiving and prowling after our husbands, young men and yes, even women's minds and hearts, we will be experiencing this excruciating pain of betrayal.
So, let us NEVER put our guards down and without hesitation, get on our knees and PRAY! Pray for our families, marriages and spouses to guard themselves against the filth surrounding us. Pray for healing and patience as those in pain deal, confront and face the up's and down's head on as they challenge what the world too often says for us to do: run, walk away. Pray that Christ's love really would be enough for those in pain and feeling lost. Pray that we will not get distracted with the bitterness and negative attitudes that arise and pray for those never to take root in our hearts.
We must always be ready for an attack of the devil and the slimy ways he plays the evil games.
Armor up. He's ready to play.
