Loneliness in a dying marriage
Added 2 weeks ago
Please pray for strength and comfort as I try to continue to show love to a man who doesn’t reciprocate. We’ve been married for 26 yrs. It seems he’s been slipping away for the last 10, & I don’t know how to fix it. He’s just constantly annoyed & irritated with me. & no matter what I say or do (or don’t say or do!), it’s always wrong & he pushes further away. I try to stay in the Word & stay near God, but I’m so hurt & so lonely. We can be in the same room, the same car, & even in the same bed & he still feels a million miles away. I continue to pray for restoration of a marriage that was once very fulfilling!
The upside is he has been going to church with me the last few weeks after years. So I know God is at work! I just need the perserverance to endure & see his work to fruition. Because quite honestly, some days the pain & the distance are so bad I want to give up & walk out. But I know that’s not what God wants. Lord, give me strength!
