Chances are that if you are holding this book, you are probably going through one of the roughest experiences of your life. You have fallen (have been unfaithful) and you want help , but knowing where to turn is complicated and confusing. You feel both guilty and frustrated. Your family and friends are distant, and God alone is left (and you're not sure how happy he is with you either). Yet God is a gracious, loving healer who makes upside-down things right side-up again, even this.
Professional counselor Michael Gembola provides daily guidance and encouragement to direct what feels like a long walk through the wilderness toward lasting change. He offers reflection questions, plus suggestions for practical tasks and actions, so you can form new qualities and habits as you move forward. Here is help and encouragement for you to move toward God in repentance while moving closer toward your spouse in reconciliation.
"When we're in a crisis we need the hope of the gospel more than ever. But standard devotional guides don't seem to be speaking to elevated emotions and despair we feel. This can make God feel farthest away when we need to feel Him most near. That is why I am so grateful for Michael Gembola devotional After an Affair. God's Word is sturdy enough for the most desperate times. This devotional is written so that the person swirling in guilt, shame, and life-family altering decisions can know that God will meet them right where they are; as painful and disorienting as that place may be."
After an Affair is a tremendous help to anyone who has experienced infidelity in marriage. Michael's pastoral wisdom and counseling experience shine as he directs the reader to spiritual food that is often missed but critical to surviving the wilderness of adultery. I will certainly be recommending and using this resource in my own ministry.
Infidelity involves many factors leading up to betrayal. Deceit in behavior and the heart are the two most obvious. Hidden sins require ruthless and consistent truth-telling and the risk of practicing new thinking and habits that will move people forward. Michael, with After an Affair, has helped us tremendously by outlining a 30-day guide that invites someone to the deeper work necessary.
After an affair most couples think now what? Questions abound. Is this salvageable? What do we do? Where do we begin? Will we ever be the same? In After an Affair, Michael Gembolo offers concrete and soul-healing strategies so that both parties can benefit and grow through a better understanding of themselves and the gospel.
