Impending divorce it seems

Well, I've been with my wife for almost 11 years now, 6 of which I was married to her.

To make a long story short we separated back in february for about 6 months and decided we could work it out. Unfortunately it seems that wasn't a good idea at all because as of yesterday (ya, Christmas Eve) she left me again taking our 3 year old son with her. I don't know if the time apart drove us even further apart or what but it seems that we just can't get along to save our lives. No matter what each of us does the other has a problem with it.

I'm at a loss.........kind of. I love her and wish things could work out but at this point I don't really know if I want things to work out. I'm spent, tired, slap wore out with this. I can't imagine another man spending more time with my son than me but I know that's a reality. She won't be unmarried long at all. That's something I'm positive of.

So anyway, I'll take all the prayer, guidance, and advice available and go from here I guess.

Side note-Since leaving Florida last year and moving back home to Missouri we have yet to find a home church and attend regularly. She is in the process of quiting her job which required her to work only weekends and I'm a police officer so I work every other weekend.

I know the answer in short is to pray and get involved in church but I don't know if it's even in me to try anymore.

Thanks.

Lord please intervene in this situation
Help all of these people
Grant and give them peace and mercy
That this police officer will get to see his son
And that you will answer the prayers to these two
To seek counseling & Christian help if warranted
In thy name and will, help them to lean on you.

Bro, it might not be in you to try anymore, but thats where God comes in. The bible says that we rejoice when we're weak because His strength shows in our weakness.

Secondly, you are committing this to God and the eventual outcome will favor you.

I think your priority right now is getting both of them back, not just the kid. Obviosly, your efforts haven't panned out so let God take it from here. He has the key to every heart and knows what it takes to change anybody. Remain encouraged, knowing that God'll take care of you.

Father, we commit this marriage into your hands. There's not a battle that you have lost, none that has trusted you that you've abandoned. This is hard for him but you are willing and able to come through for him. He is trusting you and he will not be disappointed.
Touch his wife's heart today to repent, reconcile them in you. You proved with Pharoah that you make the mind gullible and stubborn. Give him the patience and faith to trust you today. Put his family back together to the glory of your name, in Jesus name we pray, amen.

I've been thru divorce, if there's any way you can save your marriage, please try. You're right, you can't do it in your own strength, Philippians 4:13 says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." And He will strengthen you, He is faithful. The damage divorce causes will not end when the papers are signed, you are simply trading one set of problems for many more. That said, I know from personal experience one person cannot save a marriage if the person is determined to leave.

Father God, I lift this man and his family up before You, asking You to intervene in a mighty way. I pray that You will soften hearts, bring forgiveness and mercy where needed and work a miracle. I pray that this little one be spared the effects that divorce brings and that because of You in years to come they can look back with grateful hearts to the God that saved thier lives together. Thank You Lord that in You we have hope when there seems to be none, in Jesus' name, amen.
in Him, Leslie

Thanks for all the encouragement and prayers everyone!

I sent her a text message last night asking her if she'd be willing to go to church with me and seek counseling but so far no answer. I'm afraid she's more disinterested in our marriage than I am.

Just a wild idea that came to me, why not try taking her on a date and pamper her instead of working on the marriage. Sometimes we work to hard at relationships. Maybe some fun? Remember how it used to be? God Bless and know I am praying for your marriage. Put it in God's hands.

Time needed...and prayers for you...

You need time to heal and adjust, but keep up that praying and read God's Word even though you don't feel like it. Meanwhile trust that God will never leave nor forsake you. As for church...maybe not getting overly involved in a lot of activities for a while a good idea..but you will need fellowship and support. So reaching out is good. Maybe a talk with a pastor or Christian counselor would help.

My prayers for you. In the Name of Jesus...
