5 minutes: willing ...

GO:

she was willing to love him
she was willing to help him
she was willing to share her life with him

but

she wasn't willing to lose herself
she wasn't willing to take part in the things that destroyed them

she wasn't willing to continue to enable him

but

she was willing to love him
she was willing to pray for him
she was willing to let him go

because

He was willing to take the cross for them
He was willing to die for them
He was willing to love them
He was willing to forgive them

“In prayer there is a connection between what God does and what you do. You can’t get forgiveness from God, for instance, without also forgiving others. If you refuse to do your part, you cut yourself off from God’s part."
~ Matthew 6:14-15 MSG ~

  1. Cindi, this is a powerful reflection. Amazing what pain, healing, forgiveness and acceptance you've conveyed in just five minutes. Thank you for this lovely offering wrought from your experience. So happy to have met you through FMF this morning.

  2. The first three paragraphs describe my second marriage.
    I wish I could have done more for him, but it isn't up to me now.
