God tell us to do when we sin?
"confess your sins to each other and
pray for each other so that you might be healed." -
You've probably already done this. I'm guessing that the fact trhat
this is your second marriage is not a secret.
Also confess your sins in prayer to the Lord.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful
and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness."
1 John 1:9
God already knows everything you've done, so you are not telling
him something new. But He wants us to talk about our sins with Him
as a part of our healing process.
And finally make your current marriage the best marriage in the
