I never thought about Peter the way you described him. I realized that I have cut off many ears, I’m afraid. I didn’t mean to but that’s exactly how you described it. We don’t mean to do it but we jump ahead of God. Thank you for your openness and for showing us that we all have crud. I have too much crud but I’m working on it.
Sonya, you continue to bless me with every article you write. I’m waiting for a book. Please tell me there’s a book in your future?
My wife has a similar story to yours. She was abused in her home by a step father and she is closed off to anything sexual. I have to admit that it does get old after a while. I want to fix it because I can’t take it any more. If she doesn’t want me then what’s the point? I haven’t cheated on her but I’m tempted. It’s not a good situation and I don’t know what to do.
Oh, this was another good one, Sonya. I have to admit. I am a fixer, too. I didn’t think about it being a lack of trust. That was eye opening. I have been struggling in my marriage for the last year. My husband lost his job and has been distant. I decided to “fix it” and went out and got a really good job. I thought that he would be relieved and happy but instead, he is almost angrier. He’s very bitter. He hardly ever goes to church. I’ve been praying for God to turn it around and it’s not happening. I need prayer.
I hear what you’re saying but I can’t help it. I HAVE to fix it!
