Hey everyone! First off, thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it. Secondly, please take all that I will say in love and please respond only with the wisdom of what you think the Holy Spirit is saying to you. Okay, now that that's settled, on I go. I have a bit of a dilemma going on internally with my mom. I love my mom, and I believe she is the second person I'm closest to (after my hubby). I would say as I've gotten older, our relationship has formed more into a respectable friendship and I appreciate it. However, I never want to cross the line of honoring her as my mom. We've been in a place, before, where I was a bit too buddy-buddy with her and I felt that it distanced us from each other because we didn't have that line of mother and daughter. Also, I felt God told me that I was trying too hard to save her when that is His job to do. So, now we are in a better place because of the guidance of the Holy Spirit in my life. However, there has been something that has bothered me as of recently, and I'm not quite sure what to do or how to handle the situation. I firmly believe in having a group of people to keep accountable to within my church community, but I'm not sure who to talk to about this situation and if I should even talk to anyone because my mom also goes to my church. I want to respect and honor my mom by not spilling out her news all over the church. Even on here, I'm by no means trying to paint a poor portrait of her as well. But this is the issue I have: my divorced mom is seeing a married man. As I write it down, it even looks bad, but let me explain a bit further. As I mentioned before, my mom is divorced and has been for 11 years now. I'm all for my mom remarrying, if that is what God wants for her and if she marries a godly man who loves Jesus and her. I want her to be treated like a queen and be taken care of (since she is 50 years old). So I'm not against her seeing Christian men and lead to courting (with good margin as well). But my mom is seeing a Catholic man who is an undocumented immigrant and is still married to his wife in Mexico. He is not a practicing Catholic, but does consider himself a Catholic and he is only here in America to save money to take back to his country and family. From what my mom tells me, he does not consider himself married to his wife, but is still with her because they have underage children. He also says that he's spoken to his priest about the issue and, apparently, the priest said "if they're (him and his wife) arguing like cats and dogs, then they should just consider themselves divorced". I've honestly never heard a response like that from any sort of religious figure/leader in my life (and my mom and I used to consider ourselves to be Catholic). Now we are non denominational Christians and my mom has come to me for advice on the matter since she is seeing a Catholic man (who is technically married). I asked her if in Mexico the man and his wife were married legally by the court and she said yes, but they said that in their culture the church triumphs the court system. By the way, we're Guatemalan, so some of the culture aspects are different than in Mexico. My mom also has an older lady that she considers somewhat of a mentor and she is someone I trust as well since she hears from God and loves people too. I guess I'm just protective of my mom and I don't want to see her get hurt, but I'm also a guarded person who is leery to trust others too. I'm just not sure if I should allow myself to open up my life to this man that my mom likes. I've done it before and it honestly left me scarred. But, I also know that Jesus loved people even when people didn't love him and I desire to be more like Him everyday. I guess, I'm just asking any moms out there: what would you do if I was your daughter? Would you want me to be apart of their life, including their relationship, or is keeping a distance for now a good thing? As always, I've been seeking God for clarity and wisdom in this situation, but I would also appreciate prayers too. Like I said before, this is my first time on a forum, so please be kind.
