Hi I just wanted to reach out for some prayer. You may remember my story about my husband transitioning gender to be a woman. Well I’ve told him I can’t live happily as two women (he would have wanted to try to do that as he’s bisexual). Well we are now separating I was told yesterday that he found a place to live. I’m really really struggling and feel completely broken that my marriage is being bombed my this . Please pray especially for me getting through the day to day in this time of crisis. And for transitioning to life as a single mom as our daughter will be staying with me. I really hope there is joy in the future. I still hope my spouse realizes this isn’t what he wants to do but it’s looking less and less likely and he told me the other day if he doesn’t do this he doesn’t want to live. I can not believe this mess
Lord Jesus, be Bunny’s all in all….everything she needs You are. Thank You for being her Peace, her Comfort, her Protector, her Guide, her constanst source of stability, her Healer, her Rock, her Joy, her Bridegroom, and everything else she needs. We are so grateful that in this ever changing world and life, You don’t change and our hope is not in vain when it’s in You! As You prayed for Peter when Satan sifted him as wheat, I too pray that Bunny’s faith will not fail. In Your Name, Amen
Bunny, so sorry to hear that your husband is continuing in that direction. I am praying for you.
May God give you strength for each day. He is near and will take care of you, like a loving father, like a devoted husband! Thanks for providing the update.
I’m really sorry about what you’re going through. I can only imagine the hurt and betrayal you’re feeling, when you “signed up” for what thing and got another…a deliberate, sinful choice. Now that I do know very since my ex walked out on me for someone else, she just didn’t chose to transition. He’s made his choice as an adult and now you can honor that choice with the consequences of it. I’ll pray for peace and courage in this “tunnel of chaos”, for you AND your daughter. One of my team members had a wife who left him for another woman at the same time I was going through my divorce. It has led to some interesting conversations over the years with his daughters and household about God, faith, sexuality, and choices people make.
Foxandabunny, there is joy and hope in Jesus AND in the future. He is big enough to take all your questions and anger. He is kind and gentle enough to let you vent and love you still. He is wealthy enough to provide for your physical and emotional needs. He promises to give you life and to restore what the locust have taken away…BUT in order to do that and Jeremiah 29 to be fulfilled, there has to be famine and difficulty first. First of all, I wouldn’t trade my desert years for anything, even if I could go back in time and make my wife love me again. God and I got really close during that part of my spiritual journey. My church family was awesome and my friends were my rocks. I can’t tell you the number of times they loved me out of my misery. Second, since that time, my friend and I have both remarried (he married another team member who was in the soup when we were. They’ve been married 9 yrs this month and my DW and I have been married 29 months now but I was single for 12 yrs, co-parenting 3 boys with a parent having different values. It was a long time of singleness & parenting but God is good and He brought me out, graduated my kids out of HS & the house, and then gave me an AMAZING woman!!!! The woman of my dreams!
God is with you and He will see you through it, with all your hurt and questions.
I am praying for strength for you, Bunny. And I also pray that you have family, friends, or a church to help support you. There can certainly be joy after this, even though it must be impossibly hard to see through it right now.
But rest in the knowledge that you have immeasurable value, that this does not define you. That value comes from God’s love and can never be taken away. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help, emotional or otherwise. I will keep you in my prayers.
I am praying for you…
Psalm 56:1–11 (NASB95)
1 “Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me; Fighting all day long he oppresses me… 3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You… 8 You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book…11 In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
