Are we accountable?
For every decision there is a need to think about how God would have us behave/react.
It is so easy sometimes to just follow the world. Jump into the boat. Wander off the bluff with the lemmings.
But, the path we need to follow can be so much more difficult. Doing what’s right, what God intends can be the cause of ridicule and hurt.
In the end it brings blessings though, that are incomparable!
So, as I sit here still praying and still waiting on a difinitive answer, I remember ..
I will be held accountable for this decision.
I will have to answer to God for this choice.
Yes, I know He’ll love me regardless. .
Yes, I know I’ll be still be saved either way..
What does God really want me to do? What does the Bible say about this?
God is 100% against divorce so reconciling and learning to truly fall back in love with each other and really take proper care of each other is ideal…
But, then there is His understanding that not every spouse is willing to even try to fullfil their marital obligations much less be loving and caring…
1 Timothy 5:8 But if someone doesn’t provide for their own family, and especially for a member of their household, they have denied the faith. They are worse than those who have no faith. 📖
I am diligently in prayer and conversation with God over this.. and, honestly, He has shown me this verse before.. and others similar.. like Lot being greedy and taking all the best land for himself.. so I know that God fully sees what I am seeing/I am not off base on this. And there is no remorse for how we are treated.. simply an attitude that this is all that is due to us..
I can’t say that I understand his actions, or lack of actions. For me, my son comes first before me. I want to make sure he has what he needs.
I am accountable.. I’ll have to explain to God errors I made in raising my children. I was too lenient with my daughter. Gave in too easily. Spoiled her. I learned a hard hard lesson there. With Matt I am stricter. And I expect way more of him.
I am accountable. .. this was my 3rd marriage .. I promised God this would be my last..
I know that God knows I’ve tried..
But, 1st, as a friend recently reminded me, I have to follow God… seek His plan for me.. pursue that dauntlessly..
I am accountable. ..
And this man is not behaving like a Christian .. we are allowed to divorce the unsaved who refuse salvation..
I have to go forward for Jesus..🙏
I have to let go of this marriage.. 😢
