If you’ve ever wondered how people can love their enemies, read this post by Regenerating Heart – The Unsent Letter to SMW. It comes after the third part of her painful D-day story. The letter is real, it’s painful, it’s angry, but it’s also loving. As a cheater, it stings even though it’s not to me, but I’m encouraged to see someone recovering who has been hurt so badly. RH is making a choice to forgive her husband as well as the woman who thoughtlessly hurt her and her family.
It might seem self-serving to say this, but we should all follow her example. God knows I’ve needed a lot of prayer to get through this and I continue to need prayer not to do something stupid. I don’t deserve love, but I’ve been shown love by the small circle of family and friends who know. As a result, I’m recovering, my wife is recovering, and so is our marriage.
It’s easy to hate me and other cheaters because honestly we do deserve hate and not love. But God does not treat us how we deserve to be treated, and neither should we. Miss Regenerating Heart is living that. She is taking the harder path of forgiveness and love.
