Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Feb 3, 2022

Episode Summary: 

Join me with guests Mark and Jill Savage as we discuss how to rebuild trust and rebuild your marriage after cheating. Marriage is hard on the best of days, but when infidelity and temptation enter in, it makes it very painful. You won't want to miss this enlightening episode as Mark and Jill share hope from their personal experiences.

Quotables from the episode:

  • After infidelity, you don’t want to go back to life as normal.
  • Even after cheating, with two willing people, marriage can become restored and stronger.
  • The one who broke the trust has the biggest impact on how fast trust will be rebuilt.
  • If you don’t heal wounds in an inappropriate way, it will leak out at an unfortunate time.
  • The question after enduring cheating and infidelity is, “Lord, how do you want to use this to grow me?”

Scripture References:

  • Romans 8:5-6 ESV “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.”
  • Philippians 4:13 NLT “For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.”
  • Isaiah 41:13 NIV “For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.”
