Question of the Week: How can I pursue reconciliation in a marriage that my actions have damaged?
Verses: Colossians 3:12-17
Trust is the emotional reaction to proven character over time. If your actions have violated the trust of someone else, the only thing you can do to repair that damage is to rebuild from where you started. There will be no progress made if you simply expect someone to be forgiving like a real Christian. You cannot control anyone’s walk with God but your own. If you’re seeking to rebuild trust, then show your spouse your sincerity. Don’t just tell them. Work on growing in your own walk with God, and trust He will have their hearts handled in observing His work in you as you work to rebuilt the trust that you’ve violated. A good place to start is to directly deal with what caused the damage in the first place. Seek Accountability. Take advantage of the ministries that have been made available for dealing with these sorts of things. Even if the relationship ultimately falls apart, the only relationship that truly matters will remain intact.
