Introduction from Esther
I’m excited to do something a little different here today. Hopefully, this will turn into a series over time and we’ll have the opportunity to hear from many Dearly Loved Daughters of the Lord God Almighty who have overcome intimate betrayal through His mighty power.
Star has been a friend of the His Dearly Loved Daughter ministry from very early on. She was one of the first people to find this blog organically (not through a FB group for fellow bloggers) and message me with words of encouragement. She’s about one year ahead of me on the road to recovery, so her encouragement was helpful in those days when I was still very VERY raw.
I have been blessed by Star and her commitment to God, to her husband, and to her family. I hope that you too will be blessed by her story. I pray it will serve to demonstrate to all of us that God is in the business of redemption. He is working miracles, not just for me and my love, but for many others on this same path. He can do the same for you!

A few Words from Star to the Friends/ Family of the Betrayed
Isaiah 43:16-21 (NIV) This is what the LORD says – he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland… I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
A Few Thoughts from Esther
Thank-you so much Star, for your transparency. Thanks for sharing your story, but most of all, thanks for being obedient to God all along your journey! We link arms with you in prayer, asking God to continue His redemptive work in your life and marriage. We’re also asking Him to bless you and your husband in the ministry He is undoubtedly leading you into in the months and years to come! May you see Him use your story to point others toward His healing power!
Now all glory to HIM who is able, through the mighty power at work within us, to accomplish INFINITELY MORE than we might ask or imagine!
