I have set up a c for w and I thurs 4 pm cst and I am not sure what is going to happen. My w has been so anxious lately, she feels like running again and I can't handle that even she doesn't know if she will stick around. But she knows her future is w/ me. It causes me so much pain thinking that all I've done might be in vain. I'm really not hopeless, just so dang tired and worn out and I don't know where my next boost of energy will come from. Well thanks for the prayers guys, I'll let you know how things went.

Blessings to you,
knight

Knight , I know what you are going thru and its a very tough road, but somebody's got to walk it and the Lord will be there walkin with you. Counseling isnt going to help much. It may make her run faster and harder if she hears what she doesnt want to hear. It sounds very much like she has manic depression, like my wife. She may have been misdiagnosed with something else. Dont let them give her prozac.
You have to keep remembering , shes in Gods hands and there is so much you can do. I dont understand why this happens. Its like there hearts are compleatly seperated from their minds and soul. Love seems to drive them away and give them pain. You cant heal her. This is a God sized problem and only God can deal with this.
I will be praying for you and her. God will get you thru this.

Knight,
I read in another post about you carrying your wife on your back. Although she is physically healed, you are still carrying her. God has given you so much strength to endure this and I pray that you will both find peace.

You are in my prayers, ladysing

Knight, you know we are continuing to pray. I don't mean to highjack this thread but just wanted to say hi to Lostpup, too.

Mark, so sorry your pain is also continuing. I pray Father God will comfort you increasingly at this time.

It's awesome to see the community of intercessors who gather here to support one another.

Amen, FS. We NEED this intercession! I don't know where I'd be without it.

Knight, I will continue to pray as well. Amazing, after what she's been through that she would consider "running" again. I'm with Mark, I'm thinking some kind of mental/chemical imbalance is causing all this. I'm assuming they are testing for these things?

Take care, and God Bless,

The c session went well. The pastor basically just pointed us to Christ. He gave us 6 portions of scripture to read together and then for us to pray togehter. W agreed to reading, but she's not ready to pray like that yet. He also set us up to see him and his w in person Sunday afternoon.

Lostpup,
They did take her off Prozac about a month ago and now she is on Celexa, Clonezapam, and Zyprexa, nice coctail huh? I guess I don't care what her diagnosis is at this point, I just know she needs Jesus.

Ladysing,
your post made me cry. Thanks for your insight

FreshStart,
The prayers of you and your friends are appreciated.

Lupo,
I thank you also for your prayers. The running thing is amazing. She told the pastor that she was keeping her options open in case things didn't work between us, which I gave her no sign of things not working out. But I am letting her know know that if she doesn't get her act together then things won't work out. Not quite worded that way tho <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" /> They are not testing her for anything else that I know of. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> But it seems like its a worthless endeavor anyway so I will just draw near to Christ, for my peace needs to come from him.

Thanks and blessings to all,
knight
