(Testimonies Of Couples Who Have Found Freedom)
A Pastor Shares…
" It is now just over a month since we finished a week of counseling in your office. When we were there our hearts connected like we have never experienced in our 24 years of married life. While we had always been faithful to each other, we knew we were not where we should or could be emotionally. We had seen some of your videos and used them for personal growth, as well as in helping other couples. We came to freedom when we came to your office, felt your care for us as you helped us deal with our struggles.
You helped us identify the pain issues in our lives and then resolve them. One of the amazing things for me, as a husband, was that even though I knew about freedom, I had never felt it so deeply. Once all the pain issues, the temporal values and the lust issues were taken care of, I was free. I continue to live in that freedom. I realized as we were traveling home from Colorado, that I had lost my resistance to helping my wife with her work. Previously, I had hated helping her. I can’t explain it, but I just don’t mind helping her clean anymore. My wife says that I am relaxed and she feels loved.
As her husband, I also realize that life is a journey. I have not graduated. There have been a few times when I feel the pressures of ministry again and my wife comes and cares for my heart. That is something I have never had before. One of the things that this experience has done for me is that I want to live out this freedom for my wife and our boys. I enjoy caring for my wife and holding her. Also, I don’t have to measure up to other people’s expectations anymore. I am satisfied in Jesus Christ.
Since we have been to your office my husband is available to me and I feel loved and cared for. God has given me a lot more insight of how important it is to live for Him and for my husband. I can better deal with the interruptions in life and don’t have to be controlling. In my studying of English, I have more peace about where I am at with my progress. I don’t feel pressure and anxiety inside anymore. (She grew up in a home that did not allow attending school, so she never learned to read or write)
What I find so good are the times together with my husband every morning and evening. We take time for each other, to hold each other and pray together more. I have been reading Bible verses to him as best I can and I enjoy doing that. Since he is no longer tense, my time with him is enjoyable. Only once have I stepped on a pain issue in his heart and I prayed for him and he found healing.
We are so blessed to have been to Caring for the Heart Ministries. It is our sincere desire that more of our church couples will also find what we have received. Some of the couples have made comments that they see a difference in us and that is encouraging. Thank you again."
(Each week we hear similar stories and couples open their pain and share what they have experienced and how they have struggled coping with their pain. It is exciting to lead them to Jesus who can free them from their pain and bring peace and cleansing to their struggling hearts. I am thankful that the Lord can heal one's past emotional pain.)
