This season is so painful!
My husband of 18 years just STOPPED SHOWING ME ANY AFFECTION;it’s been 2 years since he has even hugged me! My older son moved 1800 miles away; he is Air Force! Very grateful for that!
What can I do? I suffer in silence; week after week! With a huge lump in my throat and hole in my heart! He will NOT go to counseling; he says “ it’s all my fault”!
I hate him for this! He is hurting me and my 16 yo son more than I could imagine! I have been praying for 16 mos EVERYDAY FOR SIGN AND OF HOPE!
Barely hanging on…
Keep praying never stop. Even if you die still praying for a sign. We are isreal. Pray for string faith ask it in jesus’ name. Take your place in the body of Christ
Virginia Garcilazo says
My heart feels heavy today, Im yearning for Gods presence ,my husband is also sick going on 2 years and sometimes this leaves me feeling alone and unloved. He can only focus on his illness, so this has left me feeling abandoned. I have no children or grand babies.. This also leaves me more alone. Please pray for me..I need to feel Gods peace in my heart…
Sonya Bear says
How are you doing now beloved sister in Christ? Do you look back and see how the Lord came through? Just curious cuz I’m feeling like I’m the abyss😢
I want to be receiving newsletter,thanks
Pray for me. My ex husband has refused to sell house and my children and I are on the brink of financial ruin. A legal loan company want their money and will send bailiffs out to take mine and my childrens possessions away. I am so tired from the battle. I am weary. I have been trying to get him to sell for ten years. I left with my children because he was a controlling husband. He took away my self.
Madelaine klein says
Maddy letting you know how things have progressed. Amazingly house sold. Now I am debt free. No bailiffs threat now. I am now moving on with life. It all got better really quickly in the 11th hour and 59th minute. What have I learned; God never let me go. He had this all along! Trust in his unfailing love.
My heart is bleeding,am so weak and helpless.My husband has been out of employment for almost 6 months now.
I have 3 boys that needs school fees to go to school, rentals and food to put on the table…
Lord I trust in you and I wait upon you….I know you have good plans for me …..
Jeremiah 29 vs 11..is my source of strength.
This is not easy alone but with Jesus by my side the burden is lighter..Strengthen me and make everything new.
