I cannot stand being in the same room as my ex-husbands’ family. I get so uncomfortable. He and I are trying to be better friends and are considering getting back together. I have been invited to Thanksgiving. What do I do?
Only you know that you, your ex-husband and God can figure out the reconciliation.
I believe marriage should last your life time. Yet, I am divorced. If anyone is to reconcile they first have to practice a sincere forgiveness and leave the past in the past. That goes for his family too.
Many of us have messy divorces and we act terribly to the people we once loved. You cannot change what has happened. You can forgive and go on. Jesus died so that we can be forgiven. I believe we are happiest when we practice forgiveness. Forgive others and forgive yourself. Regardless of your pending reconciliation ask the Lord to help you forgive and accept your ex-husband and his family for who they are and chose to love them.
Follow these three golden rules;
If you think you can handle yourself in love and forgiveness then go. If you don’t know how to do that yet, pray, read His word do what you can do in love.
Mathew 5:23 “Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”
