I am concerned for my husband. He's not in a good place in many ways. I don't need to go into all the craziness going on in our life, but I needed to ask for prayers.

Lord God, I ask that You would come alongside SC and her husband, and that You would minister to Mr SC's spirit and show him what You require of him, but also strengthen him and give him the motivation and conviction of heart to do as You will.

Thank you all for your prayers. My husband had a rare evening home and I can see a difference in him. One mountain that was placed before us, which was a breaking point for him, seems to be moving. A request was made to our city officials for a reconsideration of a decision, and it looks like they are reconsidering, and they are to get back with him within the next 36 hours. If you would, please pray for God's favor to be on us and that the spiritual forces against us, are pushed back.

There are times it seems easier to bear things. Then, there are the times like these past several days, where you feel completely alone and you can feel the burden sitting heavy on your chest, shoulders and mind.

I miss my husband. Because he has to do what others aren't willing, or committed, to do, I am left carrying things alone at home that shouldn't be. There are things a father should be handling, man to man, that can't happen when he's absent. I don't blame him. We are in a place where very few could truly understand, which really narrows our support.

I just need this weight lifted off of me so I can breathe, and so I can do what needs to be done, husband or no husband present. We have a huge family milestone happening this next Saturday, that I need energy and a clear mind for, so that I can do all that needs to be done.

Thanks for asking. I made it through that family milestone (son graduating, and we had to plan, coordinate, and prepare for his ceremony and reception). My sister came up the week prior and she was a huge help and support. That's where all of my focus has been, the last of our company left this morning. I have a feeling I will crash these next several days. That is a lot off of my shoulders, but there is still the other issues going on.

My husband has been and will be under a lot of pressure through the end of May, with many "crisis" and "emergency" situations that need immediate attention.

Wow. That was a big thing to get through! Praying God will refresh you and give your husband the ability to push through to the end of what he has to do.
