I Have No Idea What To Pray For Anymore.

I have overcome so many obstacles in life.
I have heard that I am an inspiration to others.
I give my husband all my love and respect.
I have wonderful kids who are thoughtful, responsible and respect others. People at church think "I have it made".

Yet, I feel I am meant for more. I am lonely in my own home.

I know God loves me and God has a plan.

I pray everyday and Thank God for the simple things a lot of people take for granted like being able to see, breathe, move freely without pain etc. as well as for family ,friends, loved ones and in general for anyone who suffer I pray and ask that he ease their pain even if its temporary till a more permanent solution can be found for their situation.

I don't take anything for granted anymore, maybe that is part of my issue. I expect hubby to see things as I see them. He needs to experience his "rock bottom" before he can see all there is to love in life.

Well, it may just be the lull between the storm..So maybe God wants you to get healthy, and rested, because He has some problem heading your way, that he wants you to step in, and help sort out..So, meanwhile, enjoy the calm.

I think my hubby is working on his storm and my patience is being tested. I am a helper and fixer and I can't help him with his inner struggles. I continue to pray for him as he is trying to better himself.

Solelyme, you sound a lot like where I'm at (with regard to husband) and being thr doer. I've been coming to the realization that I have enabled things too much for him and I can't help him. He needs to help himself. I also need to find happiness and wellbeing too. You are not alone in your struggles.

I am an enabler. I know that now.

There are always things to pray for like the less fortunate, sick, orphaned, elderly, and those astray. You don't have to just pray, you can also do some volunteering or charity work for a good cause that will help your community.

I pray for a lot of things. I used to volunteer for a lot of things and did a lot for my community. I got very sick 10 years ago, quick onset, hard to diagnose and many many years to be able to be a productive person now. But I am no longer reliable as my disability prevents me from doing a lot of things. My focus is on my family, I am so blessed that I have/had the support to pull through a devestating setback.

I'm sorry to hear that, but at least you had your family to help you pull through, I hope you find what you're looking for.

I am not sorry at all. I am thankful that I had family and these set backs have only made me stronger and to focus more on my family than everyone elses. Now I need to focus further and place it on myself.
