When You Can't See What's Happening on the Other Side

by Sheryl D. Williams

When you can't see
what's happening on the other side,
And your mind tells you that
your spouse is having the time of his or her life,

You think "excessively" of you not given the chance to be the GODLY
husband or the Godly wife,

But if you really think this thing over, you are!
For you're choosing to do that thing which is right...

You are still loving your spouse til death do you two apart,
You are still loving your spouse unconditionally WITH EVERY BEAT OF YOUR
HEART.

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
And scorning thoughts bombard you like the rushing tide,

When you can't see what's on the other side,
And you just use your imagination that their new lover is their forever
joy and pride,

You are "seeing" them hug and kiss,
Him holding her, her holding him...
Things you long for your spouse to do but something that you covetously
miss.

You're seeing him now play the perfect husband,
And she has become that perfect bride,
But I must tell you that somehow or another...
Stop that crying, for it's been revealed by the  WORD of GOD  as an
outright lie!

But these are truly the things that we see,
And certainly for all that we know,
He's happy! She's happy and you're left feeling very low.....

He's coming to a home with a key that no longer fits your door,
He's so satisfied...for many have told you so!

She's much prettier than you
And he brings out the best in her,
She's this and he's that...
Living large with no lack, diamonds and affordable fur.

For all you know and all you've imagined to see,
Your spouse coming back to you  
would never ever be.....

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
Your forfeited title to enjoy  married life  still tears your heart up
inside.

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
Your mind is free to exalt itself against the knowledge of GOD,
And standing for the restoration of your mariage gets very, very hard!

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
You don't see GOD proving HIMSELF to be on your side.

You don't see the times in which your spouse felt blue
When things went wrong and they thought only of you.

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
You don't see GOD pricking their hearts in dreams
Commanding them both with nightmarish episodes to relent from this
sinful scene.

When you can't see what's happening on the other side,
You don't see the many witnesses that GOD has sent their way,
Warning them to let your spouse go!

You don't see them "kicking senselessly against the goad"...
fighting a hopeless fight that they'll soon know.
They'll soon know!

Abimelech had that "covetous" encounter
of thinking that he could win,
By keeping someone else's spouse,
But GOD had to undoubtedly convince him....that he, Abimelech...
had arms  too short and that it was just too hard  
because he hadn't the power  
To wrestle with ALMIGHTY GOD!

You don't see the times when all with them was NOT well,
You don't see the times when they knew their "disguised and stolen
marital gem" was a gift granted from Hell!

You don't see the times  
when GOD will allow a portion of the same reaping to happen to them,

You don't see the time when he'll not want her anymore and...
she'll NOT want him!

You see, they have something that they just can't keep!
For you've claimed your spouse for the  Kingdom of GOD..
And GOD will truly honor that...
in exchange for the obedience of your feet!

You must believe what's happening on the other side
Provokes the judgement of GOD
and they surely won't be able to hide!

Even when you don't see
what's happening on the other side,
although he may now be with her
and she may now be with him....

Things are definitely going to change
And that relationship is destined to end.

When you can't see what's on the other side,
My friend, you simply MUST believe...
that "your marriage WILL BE restored"...
You simply must believe,  

You MUST believe
behind a  shadow of a doubt,
That our GOD knows the end..
And HE'S already worked this marriage out!

When you can't see
what's on the other side,
Draw nigh! Draw nigh!
GOD will reward your faithfulness...
For GOD just simply CANNOT lie!  

Trust HIM to do this for you!
