    Hi Leah, I can’t say that I konw exactly what you are feinleg but I can tell you this, my fiance left me for another man, but with that, I found my true wife, the one I am supposed to marry. But let me say this, Psalm 147:3 He heals the heart broken and sows up there scars. I clinged to that scripture with everything in my life. Remeber that God is always with you no matter what, you are never alone. God is with you 24/7. Also what I learned is that you wil have to pray for him, not for his well being, but to rebuke the spirit of Lust. do not blame your husband, as this is not him, he is being attacked by satan so that he wil turn to him and not God. But I Pray for you. And I ask that the Holy spirit covers you in love!
