I have never said anything until now. My marriage was not the best. I loved my husband and survived on the few precious moments we had. I had no biblical reason to leave. I was determined to stick it out. He came around towards the end, when he was dying of cancer. He asked forgiveness and I accepted. I had moments when I was unkind. Usually, I was at my breaking point. I can’t tell you what to do in your situation, that’s between you, your husband and God.
I watched my dreams fade away. What I see now is that through those 28 years of struggles and pain, God was there. He built my strength, wisdom and knowledge. That time was not wasted. God was preparing me for the greatest come back of my life. Because of my past, I am ready to step out of faith and become all God has created me to be.
God gave me a new life. I am equipped to handle anything that life throws at me. I am not afraid anymore. I am chasing my dream and God has taken me beyond what I have asked.
Perhaps one day I will have the courage to write a book about marriage and struggles. I will try to share more as I fell called.
