Emotional Affair Warning Sign #1: Unguarded Thoughts
Do you daydream about an ex from the past?
Do you think of another person while you are having sex with your husband?
Do you compare other men to your husband?
These thoughts really do matter and it’s the build-up of one seemingly insignificant thought to another which begins the snowball effect toward demise. Your thoughts become words, and your words become actions.
If we begin comparing our husband’s lack of character to another or daydream about having an affair, we are creating that snowball effect towards destruction.
Remedy: Pray for New Thought Patterns and Choose New Thoughts.
Pray against the enemy leading you toward temptation. Remember this passage of scripture: “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).
Then the next time you find yourself thinking those unhealthy thoughts, stop and choose to think of three things you love about your husband. If it helps, write these down on a piece of paper or as a note on your phone. Ask God to help you to remove those destructive thought patterns and build the habit of positive thoughts about your husband.
And don’t forget about the power of GOOD habits in marriage!
