Unhappy Would love prayer

I'm fairly new to this site but saw this forum and thought I'd ask for prayer.

Dh & I have been married 14 yrs. The last 10 have been spent trying to heal from his addiction. I've made him leave twice because of it, this last time he went almost 18 mths without a job. It was a mess.

I just had to make the decision last week to file for divorce. It's so hard. I have a 9, 5, 4 & 9 mth old. I homeschool. I watch a couple kids so I don't make much. We filed bankruptcy, my van gets repo'd this month, I lose the house sometime in the summer.

Our plan had always been for him to work and me to stay home. Now I have to all the sudden support a family of 5. I'm stressed to the max. Dd2 has croup & we were at the ER last night (me with the 4 kids). Ds2 has bronchiolitis and his first horrid ear infection. He's also super high needs.

I'm exhausted physically and emotionally. Divorce goes against what I had always believed about marriage and God's plans. It's heartbreaking.

I would love prayer. Today has been bad.

Re: Would love prayer

I am so very sorry mama. I'm never the one with the right thing to say, but my heart is heavy for you. And good for you for doing what's best for your family and knowing that you don't always have to be strong.

If there's anything I can do for you (girl clothes maybe? I have a ton through age 3, talk) please just pm me.

Tomorrow is a new day and I hope it's better for you and your children.

Re: Would love prayer

and that is a lot on your plate. Even just one of those things is a lot to handle. Prayers that you will get through this, and that it will be MUCH better on the other side!!

Re: Would love prayer

I am a Christian so i will definitely pray for you and your children, but felt led to share my heart and experience with you as well. My dh also suffers from addiction, thankfully, he it is currently under control, but we did spend many of our 10 years of marriage to get to this point. He also suffers from a mental illness and gets disability so he can not work a steady job to provide for us. This has left a huge burden on me the last 5 years or so, and has definitely changed the biblical dynamics in our family.
I have nothing else to offer you, mamma, but my prayers and my shoulder to lean on and ears to listen. You can pm or email me anytime if you want to talk further.
I am so sorry you feel all of this burden, though. Give it to Jesus...he will carry it for you.
