“Prayer is simply talking with God where you can reveal your deepest hurts and emotions. You can tell God, honestly, what is on your heart. Unburden yourself before God and know that He hears you, cares for you and loves you beyond imagination.” – Dr. Ramona
I’m thankful to start your devotional on YouVersion. We’ve been married for only 3 years. My first husband died from cancer in 2005. My children are 29 and 24. My husband belittles my children and my family. I have a close knit family and his is not. He has called me selfish, he has called my mom poison and he has said that my children will forever suck their mother’s tits ( his words). I cannot change my mind on anything or he calls me a liar. Last Christmas, we were going to celebrate my daughter’s birthday on 12/22 and spend the holidays with my family through 12/26. Both My kids live near my family in Virginia. My kids accepted my husband when we got married but they quickly realized that they are not welcomed to our home.
On the 6 hour drive, he asked if I would like to go to a bar that night to watch a football game after celebrating my daughter’s birthday and I said yes. I forgot that I was going to watch our dog when we got to my 80- year old mom’s house so my son can take his sister out for her birthday. I told my husband that I couldn’t go. He got so mad at me that he left me at my mom’s. We were to stay at my sister’s house and he spent the night at a hotel. The next day he called me and he said he was going back home and I should go home with him. I couldn’t believe it and I asked him to stay and have Christmas with us. He left me and went home. He told me to find a way home. Recently we had a big argument and he moved all my clothes and things to the guest room and told me to leave and to get a lawyer. With every argument he says our marriage is not working and we should get a divorce. Then he will be nice again. He has never apologized for anything. I know I made a commitment. He doesn’t physically abuse me but I do not want to hurt anymore. I do not know what to do. Please pray for us.
