Shattered Trust

Kate says . . .

It hurts! Bad. It shatters all that we once knew. Broken, shattered trust. Tears flow, body aches and the soul weeps.

I remember the day in our marriage very clearly when in one evening my eyes were opened and trust was shattered. Where it once encompassed all of me and our relationship, it was now at my feet in broken, mismatched pieces. I had no idea where to start in picking myself along with the pieces back up. When I sought to put them back together, through my tear swollen eyes, it never seem to fit like it used to. The puzzle had changed and me along with it.

People reach out all the time, hurting deeply, asking how they can trust their spouse again when it has been shattered. It is a great questions and oneshattered-trust many marriages deal with on some level, some deal with it in a very real, raw level.

Only Jesus 

In those raw moments when you trust is shattered and you feel as though it broke you as well. When we can’t see through the blur of tears and heart sadness. We can cry out to Jesus. The one person who knows what it is like to feel shattered and broken.
