I’ve been in a new relationship with my current boyfriend for a little less than two months. Everything started off wonderfully, but we gave into temptation and committed what feels like an unforgivable act. Since then I am struggling to forgive myself, and feeling like this has sabotaged my relationship. My boyfriend seems to be having a hard time forgiving himself, he has become very closed off and is communicating with me less and less. I know we’ve done a terrible thing, and we’ve sworn off any physical intimacy beyond hand holding and the occasional hug, but it feels like there may not be much of a future for us. I know that my redeemer lives and that he will forgive me no matter what, but I feel like I will live with this guilt for the rest of my life. Is there any hope for my boyfriend and I? Has anyone been in this incredibly hard position? Are we doomed? I need a little guidance, as I’m not quite sure where else to turn. This is something I have been struggling with for over a month, I ask Jesus to help me be mindful of what I’ve done and have the strength to resist any further temptation, and with his help so far we have stayed pure to our commitments. Please pray for me, that my boyfriend and I will be able to make it out of this difficult situation and that there may be hope for us to continue on, with the Lord as our rock of course.
