    It started when I was served papers last Friday stating that my ex-wife is taking me back to court for more money because she seems to think my circumstances changed dramatically. They did, but not the way she thinks they did. I am worse off financially now then I was when she divorced me. I make $1.16 more than I did then, but cm now paying $584 in health insurance for me and the kids that I want paying then. She also has a lawyer and I cannot get one pro-bono as I don't make enough and none will take my case because I cannot afford the $1500-$2500 retainer fee. She lied in the paperwork about me on top of it all.

    Then, this morning I lose my wallet. Which doesn't seem like a big deal, but I have sentimental things in it from my kids.

    My job keeps changing my shift. I have $100 to my name for the next two weeks. I'm filing for bankruptcy.

    I need it all to stop!

    Praying for you. I hope you get your wallet back with the things that have
    special meaning from your kids in it. Maybe someone is already trying to
    find you and return it or turned it in at a store.

    Where you go to church, you need to meet with the pastor, or an elder, and ask them if you can have some people pray with you. And that means telling them everything that is going on in your life. Everything.

    You need to be praying, in a group of other men, and you need to be down on your knees, and you need to pray to the Lord, that you are doing the best you can, but you need help and wisdom.

    And then you need to be willing to hear the wisdom that the Lord sends you. If you do this honestly before the Lord, the Lord will send you wisdom. But I have to warn you, most of the time, the wisdom the Lord sends is not the answers we want to hear.

    At some point, you will have to make a choice to follow the wisdom G-d gives, or the what seems wise in your own eyes. I would encourage you to hear the whatever Wisdom the Lord sends, and obey it. And that starts with, going to church, getting on your knees in a room of other Christian men, and just praying for G-d's help.

    That is my advice.

    Now I am out of work at least one shift because I might be developing Olacranon Bursitis of my elbow. Lots of pain and the doctor doesn't want me lifting till I go back to work on Tuesday, which if this doesn't clear up by then, will not happen.

    I cannot be out of work. Have a lawyer to pay, my car payment, the kid's insurance not to mention my electric, gas, water, rent...

    I want off this ride!
