The year 2015 has been an extremely difficult one for Billy Graham's grandson Pastor Tullian Tchividjian. After he found out that his wife Kim cheated on him, he sought comfort in a friend, and he later engaged in an extramarital affair himself.

When church leaders of the high-profile Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in South Florida confronted him about it, Tchividjian admitted to the affair and he later resigned "due to ongoing marital issues." Tchividjian hoped that they would be able to "weather this heart wrenching storm," but unfortunately, his marriage was unable to hold out and he subsequently filed for a divorce.

Since August, Tchividjian has been very quiet on his social media page after committing to let people "see me at my worst." And now, Tchividjian has revealed that the reason for his silence was because he has been busy getting his life back on track. At the same time, he has been coping with some physical issues.

"Hey friends, I know I've been quiet for a few months. I'm getting the help and healing and rest that my heart and body desperately needs. I just wanted you all to know that I'm doing really well, I'm surrounded by great people, I'm in a great church, and I have a great pastor, a great counselor, and great elders," he writes on his Facebook page. "I also had back surgery yesterday and would greatly appreciate your prayers as I recover from that. I'll be laid up for a month or so. I love you all and miss you all and thank you all for your ongoing prayers and encouragement."
