Affair recovery and personal healing found through identity in Christ
We’re all broken! Whether betrayal most recently shattered your life or something else, at His Dearly Loved Daughter Ministries we’re learning to run to the only source of true healing – the Lord Jesus Christ. As we share resources, Bible studies, and our own story, we pray others will discover along with us who God is, how to find identity in Him, and the power He gives to live a victorious life – healed and whole and dearly loved!
But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know nothing your do for the Lord is ever useless.
1 Corinthians 15:57-58
We believe healing comes through these steps:
So often, when life gets harder than we ever imagined it could, and people we should have been able to trust hurt us deeply, we begin to question the goodness of a sovereign God who allowed such horrors in the first place. This is when we MUST fight those lies with a deep dive into Scripture to discovery who God is. We need to know and believe that He is good, He is true, and He is completely faithful. We must learn to walk in the fear of the Lord as we recognize that He is holy, righteous, all powerful, and completely sovereign. Finally, we must fall before Him in humility as we discover how deeply and completely He loves us and in turn surrender our whole selves to Him.
Once we know who God is and have surrendered our lives to Him, the next step in the healing process is learning to let go of all the baggage we’ve gathered throughout our lives that tells us who we are, and instead allow the One who created us to define us. God has a whole lot to say in the Bible about who we are in Him. He tells us we are chosen by Him, adopted into His family, and uniquely designed for a purpose. That means no matter what anyone else might think or say about us, the God of the universe desires deep, intimate relationship with us and wants to empower us to fulfill our divine calling! Why would we ever accept a label from anyone else?
Step three is to deal with your specific baggage and brokenness. At HDLD Ministries, we have walked the affair recovery road and found healing, and we’d love to help you do the same. When infidelity and betrayal hit a marriage, the damage is severe. We often seek quick healing, longing to see our lives put back together. But if true and lasting healing is going to have any chance, we have to be willing to do the work and take the long road. We have to diligently work through our own personal healing and then, if both spouses are willing, do the hard work needed to restore and rebuild the marriage . But with God in control, there is hope!
There is a promise I can make to you. If you really do discover the God of the Bible and believe that He is who He says He is, and if you surrender your life to Him, find your identity in Him, and through Him do the hard work of recovery, the day WILL come when you will find yourself healed. The trauma that seemed certain to always define you will have been left in the past, where it belongs, and through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in you victorious life will be your reality. At His Dearly Loved Daughter Ministries, we want to be sure we’re dealing with that place too! We don’t want to focus only on the healing, but also on the reality of a life redeemed and restored!
