A few days ago God opened my eyes to something about Tim. He is human. He is not just an adulterer. I didn’t even realize that I was only seeing him as an adulterer. God said, he’s still a person.
Does that revelation take away the pain? No. But it helps on the road to forgiveness.
It’s hard to even admit that he is an adulterer. I still sometimes feel like I’m living in the Twilight Zone with this! This just can’t be happening!
But it is. And God is here. And He is walking with me through this. And I am trying so hard to obey Him and follow HIS lead.
And so, for now, I have to remember that Tim is a person. None of us are only what we do. There is much more to us than that. And Tim is not just his affair. That is a horrible, sad part of his story, but it’s not the whole story.
He is human. God has forgiven him. He is not just an adulterer. I have to remember that.
I am human. I am forgiven. I have to remember that.
