Lysa TerKeurst has identified what God has taught her through devastating circumstances, including her husband’s infidelity and a cancer diagnosis, and offered encouragement for Christian couples struggling to restore a broken marriage.
Last year, the best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries revealed she would be divorcing her husband of 25 years after learning of his infidelity — a discovery she called the “worst kind of betrayal.” That same year, she announced she’d been diagnosed with breast cancer and would need to undergo a double mastectomy.
Fast forward one year, and TerKeurst is cancer-free, and she and her husband are working to restore their marriage. She told The Christian Post that while the previous season of her life was “excruciatingly painful,” she’s learned that with God, there’s “always a meanwhile.”
“No matter what I’m feeling today, with God, I can say, ‘Meanwhile, God is working good, even if I can’t see it,'” she explained. “Knowing that God exists gives me a purpose in the midst of my pain. That elevates my perspective.”
“We may not see it for a little while, but God is working good there even in the darkest times,” she added. “What you’re feeling is real. The circumstances are hard….
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
