Cheated On Prison Husband

My situation is horrible. I put my husband in prison and now he's dying there of kidney cancer. I cheated on him on many occasions and tormented him with it. I love him with all my heart, and have asked God to forgive me for what I did to him, but I can't get over my extreme guilt.

You didn't say why you put him in prison.

Was it for something he did to hurt you (for which he deserves prison)? Or did you just make something up?

Oh Tara, how depressing it was to read your blog. Can you just go to authorities and tell them you didn't tell the truth? Keep searching and if it is God's will, you will find your answer. I will be praying for you.

Ask God to forgive you he is the only one that matters!

"Guilt" is a devil produce emotion. (God convicts, but does not make a person feel guilty.) As long as you feel guilty, the devil has you "looking" internally, and is keeping for from taking positive actions. God has forgiven you, (if you have repented of your sin), so proceed like a person who has been forgiven. (Remember, you are forgiven not perfect.) This is the first day of the rest of your life - you can use it constructively, or let satan bind you up with guilt.

If you feel guilty for what you have done, you have a very good reason to.

I agree with Ralph. You truly do not love him if you committed adultry, and also tormented him with it. We don't know what it was he did that made you put him in jail, but your reaction was not right no matter what he did. The guilt is there to show you that what you did was wrong. If you are truly repentant, the Lord will help you through this.

Please re read my last sentence in the previous post until you get my point.

John T, what are you talking about? I'm reacting to what was stated in the question. There is no finger pointing. I am genuinely trying to understand how a woman can say she loves a man with all her heart, and yet torment him as described. Just looking for some insight.

Please look in the mirror before pointing a finger "...if you truly loved him you could have never done those things." You only know one side, and it is very limited.

Tara: you should talk the WHOLE situation out with a pastor, or trained Christian professional. Sin has many deep roots.
---John_T on 2/5/06

God forgives but that doesn't mean the guilt will go away. Also, please help me understand how somebody could do the things you did to your husband and then claim that they love the person with all their heart. To my way of thinking, if you truly loved him you could have never done those things.

Tara, you are still on my heart so heavily. I didn't mean to assume you didn't tell the truth concerning your husbands jail. I wish I had the answer for you, but only God can do that. Are you saved? If you are not, please mail me at Shira 5965. God does forgive. He died so He could forgive. Your old sins died the day you were saved (if you are saved) and God only sees His Son when He sees you. I will pray for you daily. Shira

If God has forgiven you, you must forgive yourself. Ask God for help with this. Sometimes we cannot undo previous actions, but just trust God to work. All of us have an appointed time to go, just as our day of birth. Is your husband saved? If so, all will be resolved in heaven. Be resolved to do your best with God's help from now on. Smile, we all make mistakes, you are forgiven and not any worse than anyone else! God loves you and so do I sister.
