VHayes beat me to saying it first: "If we turn away from our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Hey, you want I should put you on a reeeal guilt trip? You gonna believe your Heavenly Father or not, young lady?

I hear very positive things about you from your post. You take sin seriously. You take Abba and His Word seriously. There are so many phonies out there Trueblue, not uncommonly to be found right next to one in the Church pews looking all proper and righteous. Such have sinned too, but they are not convicted, as you are.
You have apparently had quite a painful experience in a lot of ways. Yes, it might help for you to have some people you can trust to help you sort things out and pray for you. I hope you will be very prayerful, discrete and careful about that, though. Not all good friends are in Churches, though of course some are found there. Your Abba knows where they are.
It seems like that the "some reason" your husband took you back is because he loves you and sees the worth you have to him and your family. I am proud of him for being forgiving.
I'm proud of you, too, for wanting to do what is right and live more wisely.
Please pray for "the least of these" in the Persecuted Church Prayer Forum at top.
Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
