    My wife Linda is feeling overwhelmed by pressures of having to move because of renovations being done on our apartment. She is angry at me and threatening to commit suicide by taking an overdose of pills. We will also need to get a post office box as we will be moving more then once . Please pray for this situation.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Will pray for your wife, and you. I think Linda definitely needs psychotherapeutic counseling, if she is not getting it already. How are you doing, Sojourner?

    I imagine there is without question other reasons why she is depressed. And I would say finding out what those reasons are and helping her with whatever they are should become a top priority. I would also suggest that if you are not doing so, praying together with your wife daily about ALL of the struggles you are both going through should become a daily habit until you see your problems resolved.

    God be with you in this time.

    I pray that God would comfort your wife and help her to find any professional help that she needs. I also pray that God would help your wife to let go of the resentment that she has about the move and for your relationship together to be strengthened.

    Friend, I am going to repeat myself Somewhat. Your wife has been violent toward you, and just in general, as I have stated, is demonstrating behavior patterns associated with domestic abusers.

    The change you are hoping for in the outer world, will not change her inside. Something else will upset her, and maybe the next time that she physically attacks you she will do some kind of permanent harm.

    My prayer is that you will see what the real problem is. It is not in the externals. It is in the heart and mind of your wife.

    I am not a psychologist and so can’t positively diagnose your wife. However, you can find all kinds of information on the net about domestic abusers. As I mentioned earlier, you can talk to a domestic abuse counselor.There you can find out for yourself with the prognosis is for your wife to change her behaviors.

    My prayer for you is for light and wisdom and freedom and safe escape.
