How to Find Truth in Relationships Defined by Lies
One of the most difficult parts of recovering from intimate betrayal is learning how and when to start allowing trust to be rebuilt. This becomes especially difficult when there have been multiple betrayals strung out over long periods of time, with periods of believed sobriety in between. How can we ever know what's true when life has been one huge lie after another? How can we ever believe that the evidences of change are real this time when they've been nothing more than a mirage so many times before? While things are going very well for us right now, I'd be lying if I said this isn't still a huge (HUGE) struggle for me. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13 that love always trusts; and the life of a Christian is supposed to be defined by love. So, it's vital that I learn how to find truth and who, what, why, when, and how to trust.
