My Story | Part 4

18

Infidelity and restoration typically aren’t usually used in the same sentence, are they? Because isn’t it impossible to be restored after infidelity strikes a marriage?  I mean, that’s what the world says, isn’t it?

Well, my story is different.

Mine is a story of fear, betrayal, heartbreak, and Jesus. And the latter is the most important part.

    Dear Shannon,

    What an amazing journey you have had. I read all four posts at one time and cried almost all the way through. You are a special woman of God and so caring to share with others, seeking the ones you can help along the way. Wow…….God’s got some mighty things in store for you beautiful lady. I can’t wait to experience them with you through this blog! Thank you…….

  2. Krista says:

    Thank you for sharing your story! I admire your strength, obedience & bravery. God’s love & redemption is amazing. I’m so glad I get to watch the awesome things He’s done & will do in your lives! Love you!

  3. Laura Kent says:

    I’m commenting through blurry eyes. I don’t want you guys to leave, but I also truly understand the importance of following God’s will. We have our own battle story related to moving, and we too hold such bond with Tulsa and the people we call our Tulsa family. This is where we healed, where we learned how to REALLY love each other, where we’ve shown our children what it looks like when you fight and fight hard. I know deep in my heart that this is not our “forever home” and I ache a little every time I think about it. But for the time that it lasts, I’m holding on with both hands!!! I’m so blessed by you. By you and John, by your relationship with your girls, and by your fierce love for everyone in your sphere of influence. Thank you for being….. Shannon Geurin.

    • Shannon says:

      Laura- I love you and miss you! I haven’t seen you in forever. Thank you always for your encouraging words. They mean so much – you’ll never know!

  4. Sarah says:

    I cried for Alex reading this. I related to her in so many ways. I too was forced to grow up much sooner than necessary. I too kept secrets and knew what no child should know or be burdened with. I felt robbed of a childhood. My marriage suffered for years because of trust issues that were born from sins of my parents. My completely innocent husband suffered the from the sins of my parents. Your sweet girl is wise and mature and beyond her years. That is a gift from the Lord in the midst of storm. He held her in those times and carried her through. Praise Him!!

    • Shannon says:

      Yes. And what Satan meant for evil, God has turned to good. And that’s what I put my faith in. Thank you for your comment. xoShannon

    Hi Shannon,

    I want to comment you and say thank you for being brave enough to share your story so that others may have hope. I can so identify with the pain and feelings of self worthlessness that you struggled with. I am super happy that you and your husband are ridiculously in love today.

    I’ve linked to your story on my blog under a post titled: The Vow: A woman who chose the hard path of forgiveness.

    I also wrote an article an article on my blog titled When You’re the Woman at the Well. Please stop by and read it. I’ll be featuring your story on my facebook right after Easter Sunday.

    I’m so glad I found your website through one of the linkups.

    Blessings,

    Shannon, thank you for sharing your story. I love the happy ending! Isn’t our God wonderful?

    This year has been the worst of my life so far. I married my best friend 8 years ago, but he isn’t my best friend any longer. He isn’t the same person I’ve known for so long. I don’t know if he has been unfaithful or not – he will not talk about anything. I know it isn’t God’s will for me to give up on my marriage so I keep walking, like TobyMac sings. Your story adds to the hope I have of God restoring our relationship.

    Thank you for being so transparent. I can’t imagine how hard that was, but I know God rewards obedience.

    Thank you for being so brave! I don’t think I could ever tell my story.

    Thank you for sharing this. The “I would never…” mentality is very dangerous and you have definitely got me mulling things over about how I judge others. Beautifully written!
