My wife has left me for another man after prayer I believe that god wants me to wait patiently for her to come back to me. I get this from psalms 37 I have forgiven my wife and god has brought her back to me 4 times but she only stays with me for a week and back to richie she goes I want to trust god for I know that he knows the future sometimes I feel like this is a test that I keep failing right now Christina and richie are living in a homeless shelter in the city yet I am the one that feels like I have let Christina down by not being the husband that she needs. I keep asking myself what I did wrong this time to drive her into richie's arms. I just don't know what to do or where to go from here.

Wow may God give you wisdom in dealing with this, I would advise you to see your pastor and get support, have you read the story of Hosea and his wayward wife?, pray for your wife to fully commit to God; only once this point is reached will her eyes become open to how she is hurting you, pray without ceasing and draw near to God in this difficult time, God restored my marriage he can do it for you.
Thank you for the good advice and encouragement it means a lot to me!

I would encourage you to further seek professional counseling from a Liscensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  There are some who are Christians and can be of support and guidance long-term.  My prayers are for the Lord to give you spiritual discernment to know what HE wants you to do beyond forgiveness.

I also pray that you get tested for AIDS and STD's--as your wife has engaged in sexual relations outside of the marriage and has returned to you several times.


Don't give up. Remember prophet Hosea.


Duet.  24:1    When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give [it] in her hand, and send her out of his house.  
 24:2    And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's [wife].  
 24:3    And [if] the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth [it] in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her [to be] his wife;  
 24:4    Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that [is] abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance. 

I would say move on.

You have to be strong, and be able to provide, and project some kind of real power, so you can impress a decent gal.  Let this one go, and get over it.  She's an adulteress.  She might have been stoned to death.

God has promissed me the desires of my heart psalms 37 my wife and baby girl madison are my whole world and I have not divorced her she is still my wife so your verses do not apply here and I have forgiven her so I believe that I must put my trust in god. He who has no sin cast the first stone jesus said to the adulter even jesus forgave her so am I more rightous then jesus heaven help me if I ever think so!

Well, if you already know what to do, then why come here?  And if it's an abomination to God, then it is an abomination to God's people.  I'm sure I'm not the only one sickened by the report of some woman who keeps going back and forth between two men.  You may as well all move in together if you're going to keep sharing.  But don't try to bring this evil upon God's people.  That's the worst thing you can do.

Hebrews  10:31    [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Rush...he's coming for agreement in Prayer and for support from other Christians.  That IS what we are supposed to be here for! 

Mark 3:28 “Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter, (29) but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”

Rush, your theology of judgement and accusation is so wrong. Jon never sent his wife away. Instead of yelling "abomination!" you might want to study Jesus' teaching on forgiveness.

I have to agree...the scripture that was used does not apply to your situation. :)

are you sure it's not the feeling of loneliness that wants her to come back to you ..

I agree with cindy you need to discuss this with a pastor someone that can look at the situation without emotional involvement....

and ideas can be put into you head by the Spirit and by other spirits (demons) as well

see a pastor brother
