"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.
