Purpose and Marriage

by Philip ()

Recently separated as a result of long term depression and anxiety. Added to the depression and anxiety that lead to the separation of my marriage is my addiction to cigarettes. This addiction lead to financial strain that also contributed to the marriage breakdown. Pray that I will be able to overcome this in Jesus name please. My wife and others have noted my Narcissism as another contributing factor in the relationship break down. Please pray that God would help me overcome and replace it with the fruits of the Spirit. Also a personal disability waiting for corrective surgery is causing me physical and emotional suffering. Broken Tibia in the ankle joint and permanent damage to both feet as of a fall from height means walking / standing is painful and increases daily as I walk on it. I have broken bridges not just with my wife but family and church friends as a result of my mental illnesses though I remain strong in Gods grace and love for me. I struggle with self-loathing, worthlessness, meaninglessness, as a result of my inability to be who I know God wants me to be in Christ. This is exasperated by my inability to repent of both the toxic thought patterns inherited from the Father of lies and the sinful addictions I use to placate my physical and emotional pain. Please prayer for transformation.
