Even though I was having a crisis of faith, I couldn’t admit to it.
Feeling guilty about questioning a God who is faithful and true? This can’t be good, right? Surely, I should know better! Surely, I should not be having doubts about God!
When betrayal happens, studies show the majority of us have a crisis of faith where we are left questioning, “Why me God? Why did you allow this to happen?”
If you fall into this category of questioning why, know that you are not alone. Even the strongest among us are left wondering.
What we often assume is, if our own husband no longer loves us, then God doesn’t either- or he wouldn’t have abandoned us like this.”
Friend, it’s OK if this is your mindset. You need not feel guilty or ashamed when you think this way. When we experience a trauma, such as betrayal, the shock puts us into a state of confusion where nothing makes sense.
