Paul D
Depressed/ Confused Young Husband

Young christian man in need of strength due to bad health and addiction.

My husband is facing the need for a major life change. He is very unhappy with the character of those he works with, he has begun to drink excessively, he just found out he has high blood pressure and is 150 pounds overweight. He is on a self destructive path at the age of 33. He feels the Holy Spirit tearing at his heart to make changes in his life and he knows that once he does everything will fall into place. The problem is he has not the strength to do this. I try to help but I am seen as a nagging wife. Please help me pray that the Lord will bless him with the strength he will need to see this through. Also pray that the Lord will give me the wisdom to communicate with him and support him in this healing process. We have been on this path since we were married 6 years ago and know it is now time to head down a new one.

I would just like to say that I know how you feel. It's not always easy to deal with someone that is like this. They become hard hearted, wonder why they are placed in this situation to begin with, and they are viewing you as the nagging wife because you know what he needs to do. He chooses not to have the energy to do the things that need to be done right. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers, but on the times that you talk to him, just ask him if he feels like talking, and don't let it be the same thing over and over, and let him know how much you love him, and you are very supportive of his needs, but he needs to put forth more effort. God Bless you both!! **Jenn
