I posted this in book club, but will re-post here in case anyone in this thread is familiar with the book:

Opinions on this book?
A friend, a former counselor, highly recommended it as one 'tool' for surviving and finding happiness while still in a marriage where his honesty is in doubt.

I went to Amazon to order it, and was a little turned off by this part of the review:


According to Omartian, a marriage's success depends upon "laying down all claim to power in and of yourself, and relying on God's power to transform you, your husband, your circumstances, and your marriage." Omartian attributes the success of her own 25-year marriage to dedicated prayer ....

It seems a little bit of a contradiction, to say it's all about God, and yet her marriage is so good because she prayed.... As one who has prayed endlessly, lengthily, and persistently, what message am I supposed to take from this? I didn't use the correct syntax that she used so God is punishing me?

But I am curious of others' experience with this book, and if they would recommend it. My friend did feel that it was for HER benefit, not that a stealth method to get her husband to do or be anything.

Thank you God for bringing us all thru another night. I pray for peace and I ask Dear Lord that you hear our prayers and cover us on this long journey. In Jesus Name...Amen!

Thank you everyone for your prayers. I have been praying for all. We are still in limbo and without work. But I held my head high in court; H and I behaved well with the OC; and we remained a united front.

God watch over the innocent OC. Bless the OW's heart. Help her be a good mother to them. God grant me peace, strength and vision to do Your Will. Amen.

Remember the footprints in the sand story? Just when your road seems to difficult to walk and you feel all alone, remember that God is carrying you. And we are praying for you and with you.

Many blessings.

praying anjin
praying momofthree. Have you had those babies yet? Please keep us updated. Praying for a safe and quick labor.

Please pray for my husband. He's pushing me away and if he keeps pushing, I will probably quit trying.

edited because I can't read. Momofthree - I thought your babies were due July and didn't see that they were born already. God knew I would pray for a safe delivery after the fact right?

I just wanted to post and that my WH finally went to church Sunday. He hasn't walked thru those doors in 3 months!!!

I know God brought him. WH even went to the alter and took me with him. Asked one of the Deacons to pray for our marriage...and he's the same Deacon who was present at our wedding. Afterwards WH hugged and kissed me and said he was sorry.

I so want to believe...and I've prayed and prayed about this. I want God to have brought us both thru this. I gave God the glory and praise even during the worse moments. I'm praying that we needed to go thru this to bring us closer to God and to each other.

I still have doubts in the back of my mind that my WH can't be strong enough to fight off the devil's charm!

Look...I need to be able to post in a safe place. I just can't do this anymore. I have been a strong christian since I was 13, not perfect but strong believer. The pain inside of me is getting the best of me and is testing my faith. I'm starting to doubt that there is a God. I just don't believe that if there were a "loving God" he would put ALL of us through this. I am horrifically distraught over even thinking this but my pain has taken over. I see on a weekly basis others that have JFO about affairs. I'm SO sick of it. My husband left me for another woman and has never looked back. He never even told me he wasn't happy in the marriage so I could try to fix it. I can't believe God could not have made this situation better for a good heart-felt follower of his.
I'm sorry ya'll but I feel like there is a battle going on over my soul and I don't have any strength left to fight. I'm going to talk with my minister tomorrow and hope he can help change my mind.

(((tnvolpa))) I don't fully understand either. I know I look at others who don't seem to live a Christian life and their lives seems to go swimmingly. It is a test of your faith. I know I don't feel like I can fully trust my H again until I fully have faith in God again.

I will pray for us both.

(((((((((tnvolpa))))))))))))

My faith is being tested with this scene too. Don't know if I can make it through some days. Don't understand why. I'm trying to live with patience that answers may or may not come, but that the time to live my life is now. Keep praying, meditating and put yourself with people who are supportive of you. Hopefully we will all find peace. For me there is inspiration here. When my faith is weak, I look here and lean on others whose faith is not.

Blessings.

Okay...I'm back!! My friend, who is truly my sister in Christ, called me in the middle of my deepest darkest abyss and shined the biggest brightest light into my dark thoughts!! I also went and talked with my minister who said God knows I'm going to be mad at him, that he understands my emotions are all over the place on this roller coaster ride.
I know that I can't live without my ROCK which is GOD. I don't know alot, but that I know.

Thanks so much for the prayers....I am surrendering!! I am praying for you all. May today you see a powerful light in your darkness!! Christ love!!

Praying for each and every person who posted. God give every one here the strength that they need in their particular situation. Help us to remember that You are here with us always.

Please add me to the prayer list, as we await a decision in our court case. If we lose, we will be devestated financially. God has a plan, I know. But help me to see it. Ask God to guide us through this time. And for OW to stay out of our lives, as the 2 year antiversarry of dday approaches this month.

Praying for everyone.

Ginger, you alright?

((tnvolpa)) glad you were able to find strength in your time of darkness.

momof32007, how are you holding up?

Uni, hope you are doing well. Thanks for that info!

Praying for everyone's comfort and strength.

God please be with each of us. Please hear our prayers, and send your Holy Spirit to minister to us, each according to our individual needs. Please help us through the dark times. Please help us to remember that You know what is best for us, and that sometimes your will goes against our expectations. Help us to not falter at those times, but to remain thankful for our blessings, and to persevere. If it is your will Lord, help us achieve our goals, but in the process please keep us mindful of our ultimate goal - life eternal with You in heaven. In Jesus' name we pray.
