“Drink water from your own cistern and running water from your own well.
Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, stream of water in the streets?”
(Proverb 5:15, l6).
FEELING OVERWHELMED trying to justify her behavior, writing her hands and loaded by sense of guilt, she sat before me. I listened to her silence and was only able to offer my empathy for her pain and anguish. She wiped her brow, as if trying to forget the events that led her to have an extramarital affair. Pressured by hardships she faced in her marriage relationship, at some point in time she stopped being on guard and fell into temptation.
Contrary to popular belief, adultery is also a sin in which many women fall; and its results are just as devastating, perhaps even more than masculine adultery. Experts in marital relationships affirm that what a woman seeks in an extramarital affair is basically in the intimacy and love she does not find in her husband.
A woman’s heart longs to love and to be loved. If that need is unmet by her husband, she may feel vulnerable. It would be chaotic for her to seek to satisfy that need through another person; it’s always a mistake.
Married woman, if your marital relationship has become cold, don’t use this as an excuse to ramble on romantic fantasies with someone who isn’t your husband, nor to accept other men’s courtship. What you ultimately reap will be a guilty conscience, emotional pain and social rejection. & honest; if your marriage has lost its romance, tell your husband, and make into account that you are the other half, so you must both recover it together. Guard your heart and set boundaries on your thoughts; don’t play with temptation by thinking it’s a trivial and unimportant matter.
You may unknowingly be digging the grave for your personal dignity and the end of your marriage relationship.
The writer of Proverbs says,
“Drink water from your own cistern, anddinning water from your own well» (Proverbs 5:15). It’s in your marriage relationship that you can freely ask for and give love. Stay firm to your convictions and marriage vows that came out of your heart, which was in love heart on your wedding day. Don’t allow your spiritual defense to wear out in life’s mad rush. God knows your heart and, when you feel weak, He will be there to shield you and give you strength.
