Ep 178 - Should I Forgive My Spouse

April 10, 2024

We have been focusing on forgiveness lately in recent episodes and want to continue that topic. Have you ever wondered if your spouse is worthy of your forgiveness? “If God can forgive me for the things I have done, I can forgive my husband and fight for my marriage.” Lori, a woman who is standing for the healing of her marriage, spoke those powerful words.


As Lori, a stander in Georgia, shared her testimony publicly, she reminded herself of why she decided to fight for her marriage. We can forgive just as we have been forgiven. This flashback episode will strengthen your resolve to forgive your spouse and encourage you to pray for your marriage to be all God wants.
