I would love you all to pray for me to increase my faith in the Lord. I know only he can restore my marriage. I pray 4 times or more a day for my husband to hear the Lord calling him.
I guess what I am asking for is a little help to keep me going, I love my husband but we have been apart 9 months, and I am wondering will this marriage be restored. I ask God what I should do, but maybe I don't here his answer, so I just keep on praying for the restoration of my marriage and that God will change all he needs to change in me.
Hope this makes sense.

I feel for you Sweetie! I know how you feel. Not until this all has happened to me was I able to fully trust in God. I have always been a Christian since I can remember, but honestly I am much happier with myself(who I am) than I have ever been. Just keep on relying on Him. He will give us the answers we are looking for. Just remember that God's timing is not always our timing, so as hard as it is we must be patient. But know that God knows everything, he knows the outcome for us, and he also knows what needs to happen in between. We don't, but he does!!! That's good news. He knows that we can't handle this alone, so keep on relying on him! He will see you thru! God bless you! You are in my prayers as all of us here on this board. It is a Godsend! Also, read the word. God will show you lots of things thru his word! Wanted you to know that someone is thinking of you and praying for you too!

FH&L, God is increasing your faith by testing it. Many do get faith confused. Our faith is in Jesus. It grows when we learn to trust Him more. Great faith isnt quick answers to prayer's. Wish it was though. I do understand all to well of what you are feeling and wondering. I still wonder, how long Lord? 4 years so far... God is faithful even when we are not. Its all in His hands and Its just best to leave it there. I have found that when I was looking for answers, I was acually looking for results. I have tryed to con God into doing things in my time. I do grow weary. I am not sure I want my marriage restored anymore. That doesnt matter. God is going to do His will. Just wish He would hurry up and do something. So for now we need to rest in the Lord and wait patiently(longsuffering) on Him. I pray God gives you His peace in increasing measure thru your trials. In Jesus name, Amen

I certainly feel God is testing me, not sure I am passing the test! I love my husband so much and long for the restoration of my marriage. I really don't like being on my own, I am finding it easier and easier and I am not sure if that worries me. I worry about our kids and the affect this is having on them. Guess I am just wanting God to say to me "yes" I am going to restore you marriage, or even "no" I am not going to restore your marriage. Am answer either way would be nice. But myabe God has to change a lot more in me yet, it's that not knowing.
Aaaaaaarrrrrrrrrhhhhhhh
Thank you all for replying to me and please keep praying for the restoration of my marriage and my family. I will keep praying for you all and everyone on the site.
God Bless
