Let the story of Anthony Galura bring you hope for restoration.
Distance, money, and lack of communication were the reasons why Anthony’s marriage began to fall apart.
He was a member of an underground movement, and during that time, he was so motivated by his passion. However, his dedication came at a price.
As he spent more time away from his family, all the burden fell on the shoulders of his wife, Ivy. Even when Anthony decided to come home, his wife and son were already distant.
Worse, Ivy met someone new. She chose to have an affair than being with an absentee husband. The separation was painful for Anthony, but his wife’s decision was beyond his control.
How did their son feel during all of this?
One day, Anthony saw his son alone and crying. Seeing his son’s pain, he started to break down and cry, too.
“I can’t do this anymore. All the books I’ve read felt useless because at that moment, I was broken and my marriage was falling apart,” he said to himself.
Anthony remembered his friend’s advice to call the CBN Asia Prayer Center.
The prayer counselors assured Anthony that Jesus knows his pain and that only God can restore his family. He cried and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
He had no idea that on the other side of the struggle, Ivy also came to know Christ and was already going through the process of transformation.
Not long after, he received a text from his wife saying that they needed to talk.
“When you realize how big your sin is, you will want to ask for forgiveness. He’s my husband and what I did was really wrong,” Ivy said.
They both apologized to each other and felt a huge sense of relief.
It was not an easy process of healing but in time, they have forgiven each other completely. As a wonderful result, Anthony and Ivy got married again.
Anthony claimed that he can’t imagine what his life would have become if no one prayed for him and if The 700 Club Asia did not encourage him to accept Jesus Christ.
No matter how unsolvable your family problems seem, take heart. There is hope.
God has a purpose for what you’re going through right now. Surrender your worries to Jesus and trust that you can always rely on His promise of healing and restoration.
“The LORD has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.” (Proverbs 16:4 ESV)
