Surviving the holidays while hurting can seem impossible. Christmas is hard enough to deal with when life is good! When you are hurting due to a spouse’s infidelity, due to losing a job or financial issues, due to physical illness, due to personal issues such as depression, due to family issues, or for any reason, how are you supposed to survive?
In this week’s episode we finish the year with a question we are asked almost every year: “How am I supposed to have a holiday with my children when my spouse just walked out on me! They don’t even know we have no money! WHAT DO I DO?”
Verses in this podcast:
I Peter 5:7 “Cast your cares on Him for He careth for you”
Matthew 6:26-34 regarding the birds of the air and the lilies of the field
Matthew 10:29-31 “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny ? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.“
Psalm 143:4 “I am losing all hope; I am paralyzed with fear. I remember the days of old. I ponder all your great works and think about what you have done. I lift my hands to you in prayer. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain.“
Next week we’ll begin our new four-week series “Caring for Your CHILDREN When There’s Been an Affair.” We’ll talk about the ideal: what we are supposed to be teaching our children. We’ll itemize what children NEED when one of their parents has an affair. We’ll get into common pitfalls parents make when one has been unfaithful. And we’ll end on letting God heal broken hearts![audio: https://s3.amazonaws.com/affaircare-podcast/Survive+Holidays.mp3]
