Dear Ramona, I’m a mother with two daughters (just 2, 3 yrs old) and also a victim of domestic violence. My ex-husband punched me with his fists almost twenty times in front of my children last October (not the first time), one of the reasons I decided to get divorced despite the fact that he has a successful career and earns three times much more than I. He also had an affair when I was pregnant with my second child; he told me that he ended the relationship but obviously, it was not true and he kept sinning. Just like you, I first thought I could change him for the better by prayers (I’m also a devoted Catholic Christian), perseverance, and efforts in every aspect of our relationship. We even did counseling for more than a year but it did not help eventually. I realized that he didn’t really have the sincere desire to change and to restore our relationship. Currently, we are living separately and we are in the midst of a divorce suit. I’m taking care of my girls with my parents and although I’m confident that I made the right decision, I sometimes feel guilty and sorry for my children because I took away their father because of my failure in marriage. I also felt a contradiction inside me that in spirit, I wanted to forgive him but in flesh, I don’t because until this day he and his parents harassed me and my family by sending texts and mails for the visitation rights and etc. without any regrets and apologies for what he has done.I have seen your video today, just accidentally while watching some other Christian videos. Your story is very encouraging for me and I believe that if you could have a happy life despite the experience with you and Ben, I can too have a happy life, someday with a future husband who is healthy in mind, spirit, and body, and also loves Jesus so that he can unite with his wife in every day.
I would appreciate it if you could pray for me and my daughters, my parents that God blesses us to keep them safe and healthy; and that I can achieve the ultimate breakthrough and peace…and someday a future husband whom I can love unconditionally. Lastly, forgiveness so that I can become free from my ex’s power over me. Thank you Ramona.
