Facing our challenges head-on!
Challenges Women Face

March 3, 2017

Dear Julie:

I started dating my boyfriend a few years ago and it started pretty good. We’ve known each other most of our adult lives but never got together. I knew he liked me in the beginning but we were young. I advised him that I would have hurt him tremendously. So after I was done playing around, he and I got together.

I was seriously happy. We talked but it’s never really been on a deep level. Recently I found out that he’s been cheating on me. When I confronted him with it, he came clean. I knew that he cheated on, at least, one of his girlfriends; so I don’t know why I thought I would be different but I did. He says he broke it off with the girl but my gut is still not trusting of this. I’m in love with him and I want to be with him. How do I move past the hurt and be happy with him again? –Hurt


Dear Hurt:

Trust, once lost, is difficult to rebuild–but it can be done. With God, all things are possible. But I must ask if you and your boyfriend are believers in Jesus Christ because you make no mention of it. Without the Lord, it’s very difficult to maintain a lasting relationship based on trust. If you are already seeing lack of trust is becoming an issue, it will only get worse. You have some decisions to make, dear one. I’m praying you’ll save yourself a lot of heartbreak and do things God’s way.
God bless you.
