Ever have a scar that begins to ache (weather change, too cold, etc…)?
Tonight I was digitally encouraged by Darco to begin a daily devotion (seven days) on marriage and commitment.
“No big deal”, I thought as I accessed the piece. First came scripture talking about one man and one woman equalling one flesh together.
“I got this”, I thought as I cruised through the plan. I accidentally got our of the application on my phone, so without thought I started digging for the plan again. When I had landed on the right page I saw a plan above the one I was working on…
Marriage: Infidelity Crisis
That’s all it took.
I logged out as fast as I could.
My mind was smacked with memories and moments from four years ago, nearly to the date when my wife-at-the-time attempted to go to marital counseling without informing me. I still remember the shaking legs, elevated heartbeat, wanting to be at my parents house while realizing I was trapped at her family’s house. I remember my brain being fuzzy, ears ringing, and a lump in my throat.
All of that, rushing back, from a stupid title.
My scars still ache.
