Jesus came to pardon our sins, but He also came to heal the brokenhearted so we can walk in freedom.  Freedom from pain, guilt, shame, sin, and condemnation. By His wounds we are healed. May God continue to bless us on the path to complete restoration and healing in Him.  

Peace that Surpasses all Understanding

Posted by Kristina Croft on Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Discovering your husband's addiction to pornography can be one of the most unsettling experiences of your life. There are so many questions and confusion that plague your mind. Insecurities and fears that shake you to the core. And emotional chaos that seems to turn your life upside down. Addictions of any kind can devastate a family, but addictions of a sexual nature tend to take a special toll on wives. We take it so personally. Pornography attacks the very heart of us and makes us question our beauty, intelligence, and sexuality. It makes us question the man we love more than anyone else on the planet. It make us question every second of every day that we've been together and wonder, “was he lying that time?” The enemy uses pornography to destroy women. Not just by degrading and objectifying the porn star, but also by attempting to kill the souls of ordinary wives who are blindsided by it.

Are you feeling confused, insecure, angry, and alone? Do you find it difficult to understand why your husband has been struggling with pornography for so long? What are you going to do; where do you go from here? Well you are not alone. I felt the same way. And every woman who contacts us at Isaiah 53 Ministry feels the same way. Theses are universal among wives of porn addicts. And if there's one answer for all of us, it's this: The peace the surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).

No matter what the circumstance, no matter what your husband has done, no matter how brokenhearted you are... Jesus will give you peace. That surpasses all understanding. Do you know what that means? It means that even when you are plagued by confusion and insecurity, even when you are in despair, Jesus will guard your heart and mind. There are some things in this journey that we will never understand. No matter how many books or blogs I've read about WHY my husband looked at pornography, I still don't really understand. In my mind I understand all the bells and whistles of why, but in my heart, no in my heart I still don't understand how he could have done that. No my heart still has unanswered questions, even four years later. But that's OK. Because Christ gives me PEACE that surpasses all understanding. And I know that my husband has been delivered from his addiction and is walking in complete freedom. I know that God has transformed our marriage and has allowed this awful thing from our past to be used to help hurting women. Women like you.

So don't lose hope. I know that you're hurting. Jesus knows that you're hurting. But He hasn't left you and if you cry out to God in prayer with thanksgiving, He will give you peace. He may not change your circumstances right away, but He will guard your heart and mind so that you can make it through this. How do I know? Because I've seen Him do it in my own life.

Walking in Freedom,
