Have You Ever Been Cheated On? Have You Ever Cheated or Thought About It?

OK, so one time I had an accident in my car. I was so upset. I had the car towed to the shop and had it repaired. They tried their best to make it like new again. They fixed the damage and repainted the area where the car had been hit. But no matter how they tried to match the paint to the original color, they couldn’t. So every day after that, when I would go to the car, I would always notice that the paint didn’t match. Every time I got into the car I would see that area where the paint was different and it would always remind me of the wreck. And even though the car had been repaired it never rode or drove the same again. 

Later, I found out that because the car had been damaged it was worth less than it was before the damage. I thought about this the other day when I was thinking about people who cheat in relationships. When someone cheats, or you have been cheated on, the relationship is never the same. Sure, you can stay together, work on it and repair it, but every time you take a hard look at your relationship you will be reminded of it. I know many of you reading this understand what I’m talking about. The relationship was once so amazing and new and now has lost its value. You have tried to move on but it’s difficult to trust again. I get it, I SO GET IT!

That’s why I wrote Temptation, my new movie that opens this Friday. I WANT YOU TO SEE IT THIS WEEKEND! In this movie I talk about being tempted, I talk about how to forgive, I talk about how to move on from it, and I also talk about how sometimes the decisions you make when you decide to cheat can stay with you for the rest of your life. This movie is powerful. I showed it to several hundred pastors, then had them over to my house to talk about it and the sentiment was the same. This movie has the power to save relationships. So please go see it this weekend if you can. Bring your husband or your wife, your girlfriends and boyfriends, single's ministries and church groups. The subject matter is too strong for kids but it’s perfect for young adults and older. I can’t wait for you to see it. TEMPTATION OPENS EVERYWHERE THIS FRIDAY.

    I think Shakespeare was so right when he said, "To thine on self be true, and it must follow as the night to the day, thou cannot then be false to anyone." It begins and ends within ourselves. Growing up in an abusive home it becomes hard to distinguish the truth from the lies. After years of letting other people define me I have finally come to realize that is only their opinion. In reality it does not matter as long as I am personally living a life of integrity, being in connection with God. People will always disappoint us if that is where our faith lies; ultimately it is the lies I tell myself that causes me the most pain. Not wanting to accept things as they are, believing the illusion of a perfect lover or partner is setting oneself up for failure. On the other hand, compromising my own values at the expense of an unfaithful lover, repeatedly is simply slow suicide. An unfaithful lover has very little to do with the partner and everything to do with the individual. trying to fill the h*** in our souls with anything but God, just won't work.

    Spring break, Easter weekend, and tax refund time all rolled into one. People are out and about. Perfect weather for a Temptation weekend at the theater. I predict number one at the box office. Tyler, have a great weekend. I AM GOING TO SEE IT.

    Tyler , I can't wait to see the movie, I know from personal experience what it is like. You never said it better. I have a story of my own as I'm sure we all do. The only difference is, is how God got me through. Not only do I talk about it, it's my greatest testimony, I preach about it. Wanna hear about it, call me.

    What if God does not make a way to escape, is it still temptation? And what if temptation becomes more than we can bear is it of God? I guess if I can bear it, it no longer becomes TEMPTATION, right? Or is it still TEMPTATION? Matthew 26:41, 1 Cor.10:13;Gal 4:14; James 1:12 I guess we just have to PRAY, Lord, please lead us not into TEMPTATION. Matt. 6:13

      Tyler, do you have a SECRET GARDEN, GARDEN of EDEN, or GARDEN of GETHSEMANE in the prayer garden? Gen. 2:8; Mark 14:32-42

      God has already made a way to escape, it is the death and resurrection of Jesus. Temptation is always an attack from the enemy. Any time we are tempted it is an opportunity to get closer to God. People have freewill that God does not interfere with. Ultimately what we believe and what and who we choose will determine the outcome of our temptation. Fighting temptation is not a human's war to be won. The battle belongs to God. We just need to hand it over to Him.

    I've been cheating on in my marriage. N yes it's hard to forget about it. N trust the mate again. But I refuse to be bound I love The Lord he has made way.

    I have never cheated in a relationship. I have never felt the call to do so, but I do understand why so many do. It is because they lack moral conviction. They have no foundation by which to build a lasting relationship and they want what they see others with. THE CAKE AND ICE CREAM. Which by the way is literally GOOD and FATTENING. Oh I'm getting off the subject. Or am I. But here is the deal for me. Sickness now comes in all kinds of forms, and seldom are we cured form the ailments that taunt us and move us in the direction of incompleteness. And when we feel incomplete we go in search of something or someone to make us feel complete. Seldom do we find it, and the fun turns out to be in the search. I love too hard and too real to fool myself into thinking that anyone can complete me. My feelings of love are in themselves a form of completeness. If you can't handle it. Go get some cake and icecream...
