Through the Fire But Not Burned

Let me tell you about a fire I went through.

Some can agree with me when I say 'life can sometimes feel like hell on earth'.

I was once married and madly in love with my husband. We dated for about 5 years before we tied the knot. You couldn’t tell me my husband didn’t love me or that he would cheat on me. Well, I learned then never say never. When I found out about the additional relationship he decided to take on, the other woman was pregnant. Plus I knew her! I didn’t know of her; no, I literally knew her. I thought we were friends but it turns out we were not. Anywho, I was devastated, without a doubt. It was like my whole world was shattered and no one could understand. I had given my all and felt something was wrong with me. I just knew this relationship was the one to last forever.

Did I try to reconcile with my husband? Yes. Did I pray for my marriage? Yes and no.

I asked God to change my heart but never to heal my marriage. Could I trust my husband again? No, I could not. I tried really hard to trust him again but I simply couldn’t because I had not forgiven him. My life took a turn down a path that left me depressed and lonely. Going through this fire is where I learned to trust God. I sought the assistance of a therapist; combined with prayer and my new faith in God, I made it out. Today, I can confess that I went through the fire, but I’m not burned.

Daniel 3:21-22,27 NLT - "So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully dressed in their pants, turbans, robes, and other garments. And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in. Verse 27 - Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was singed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!"
