I could just really use your prayers right now I did good last night not trying to communicate with my wife to give her the space she wants I did call to be able to tell my son goodnight and that I loved him and I did tell her to have a good night but that was it.  This morning I only text her to remind her that our son had school pictures today to make sure she dressed him nice but I broke down around 7 this morning and ended up calling her.  She has been posting things in soncial media that are quotes that target what’s going on in our relationship and I know she knows I see them and that it hurts.  I’m trying to give control to God to guide me but this is still all very new to me.  I’ve always believed in God but have never really had a relationship with him the last 4 weeks I’ve grown closer to him than I ever have in my life but it’s still new and I’m trying my best to give him complete control cause I know he knows what’s best for me but I’m very scared.  So I would just like some prayers to help me to just let go and let him take over 100%.

  • Prayers will be said.

    Cancel your social media account(s).  keeping the account, and even deactivating it will be tempting to reactivate it, but keeping the account gives you access to see things that do not help.  And gives you opportunity to snoop on what she's doing or what she's up to.  If God wants you to know something, you will find out by not checking up on her.

    I am not saying you are on social media to snoop, but it sure is a temptation.

    She is posting things like this to justify her behavior.  To prove to herself she has made the right decisions.  Its just another way for her to show you, and herself that she has kept her wall up.

  • Plus not spending time on social media gives you more  time to pray.

  • These moments hurt.  But this is a great time to learn to find peace in God even in the pains she causes.  You can be in peace and even joy in these moments.

    Put God above her, her posts, and anything else that's hurting you.  And when you have God first, His comfort  will be there. Even in pain.

    And do not confront her about the posts.

  • Thank you tim

  • Do you know some good scripture that I could read that will relate to my situation.

  • Don't look at her social media accounts. Temporarily deactivate yours or just don't look at hers. I think on Facebook when you click "unfriend" there is an option to "take a break" from someone. Or stay friends but "unfollow" so you won't see her posts. Worrying about what she is doing will eat you up. Don't worry about her. Worry about yourself- mentally and physically. Take this opportunity to join a gym. Planet Fitness is $10/month if you have one close by. This situation will probably go on for longer than you anticipate. This is a great time to grow and learn and work on your health and faith. This is all about you and God.
