Good Morning On my drive in just now i heard the interview with Plum. To say that it resonated with me would be putting it lightly. For nearly 2 years I have lived in what appears to be a similar circumstance in my marriage. When this journey began in 2013 I was as far away from God as i have ever been. When my wife told me that she had strayed emotionally from the marriage my reaction was a combination of hurt and anger. The days and months since then have been nothing short of a roller coaster for me. I have spoken to pastors, spoken to attorneys, gone to christian marriage counseling and said more to friends than quite honestly i should have. Although I have been seeking Christian counsel throughout it was not until the beginning of this year that i felt myself turning this away from all the noise of those around me and beginning to trust God. I wish i could tell you that the marriage is better, or at least that i have been healed spiritually and emotionally. Unfortunately that is not my story, at least not yet. But day by day and piece by piece i find myself more in a state of brokenness. Not the negative brokenness of hopelessness, but the brokenness of knowing it is out of my hands and trusting God to see me through. It is so ironic that it was Plum who shared that story. Her song "I need you now" has become the song that i find myself turning on in those moments when i find myself needing a real spiritual boost, or when i find myself trying to "hear that still small voice". I have begun to no longer pray for myself, or even my marriage. I do not believe that my wife has a relationship with the savior. At a minimum i believe she is not reaching to him for guidance. I dont know what she wants. She wont leave the marriage but at the same time she is not really here either. I pray daily for a "Justin" to somehow enter her life and help her get to that point where she realizes God is her only hope. I dont know that even that will save the marriage, maybe too much has happened, but regardless I have come to realize that her having a relationship with God far outweighs any relationship she could have with me or anyone else. I just pray that she will come to this realization as well. Please hold my wife and 2 teenage children up in prayer as we continue to navigate through these uncertain waters. And Thank You for bringing Joy into my life even in ways such as this morning where it did not bring happiness, but even so it did bring hope.

Please pray for me to have guidance in this situation. I was separated from my husband when I fell for and became pregnant by another man. He didn't want to be with me like that (he said we were just friends/w benefits) so my husband and I reconciled. I did not find out I was pregnant until my husband and I had got back together and he moved back home. My husband stayed with me through the pregnancy and the bio dad was horrible to me. I now have a beautiful 19 month old son whom the biological father has recently been contacting me and wants to see him. I have now let him see him a few times. He has asked for forgiveness and said he wants to know his son and etc. etc. I need prayer for discernment to know what to do. Even though I am back with my husband, I am finding it extremely difficult to cut off the x because I have his child. I still have feelings for him also. I am worried if I cannot stop ultimately my marriage will end because I can't seem to cut of guy out of my life but I feel so connected with him. Thank you so much for your prayers!!

My daughter ran away from home with her boyfriend. He has brain washed her and will not let her have contact with her family. He has convinced her to marry him. Which will be a big mistake but she can not see it. She is 20 so there is nothing I can do. Just let God have her.

Please pray for my marriage.It seams the more effort I put in the worse it gets.We are as far apart as heaven and earth. I know God hates divorce and he put us together for a reason and has blessed us so much with kids\friends\church\family. It breaks my heart to see were this is going and how much there is to lose and can't do anything to stop it. I am out of tears and it's in his hands. Please pray that God would replace the sin and world with his will and his work. Thank for all you do in his name.

My husband and I have another married couple that we are friends with.They have decided today to call it quits. They have 2 small children under 2 years old. It breaks my heart!! I know that God can work out anything! They have tried to work it out themselves. But things have not gotten better and won't until they allow God to take over. I pray not only that their marriage can be restored but that God gives me the best words to say as a friend.

I have a son who is developmentally delayed. He is 28 years old and has moved back home because he is getting a divorce. He has talked about not wanting to live anymore because he's a failure. We have been trying to get him a p.t. job and have applied everywhere. We have tried all our resources for help but the waiting list can be a year or longer with the state. He has been here since november and even the goodwill doesn't seem to help. We have tried to get him into housing but that too has over a year waiting list. I do not know where to turn or where to go next. He sits alone everyday and night and just looks at his phone. He has more to give than this, he plays the bass guitar and has played with the church before. Can you help with a church that would take us in and welcome him and help with maybe some resources. He does't drink or smoke or drugs. He is on medication for depression. He can drive and could live alone if someone like myself and his dad monitor his money. He gets ssi and Im in charge of it. We just need some direction and a new beginning for him. I have always been an advocate for him but he is falling through the cracks. He doesn't belong with pathways because he is not on drugs, the state says fill out the forms and the wait can be a year and that's if they have sevice for him in franklin county. I have prayed his whole life through I love my son more than myself and this is grieving me to see him on this downward spiral.I have to work his dad works and to leave him to go to work I wonder if he'll hurt himself when I get back. He is too high level for the Rudledge center and they can't help. Please if your listeners or contacts could help please send them my way. We will do anything to get us out of this rut and help him along.
