Here lately brothers I have been under a lot of stress. I have been practicing repentance from my sins and it had had been a long process. I wasn't strong enough to stamp them all out the first day but over time I have repented from my drinking, foul language, anger, gossip, the list goes on. The problem is my wife isn't all in tune with repenting from hers and it is causing tension in the household. I find myself practicing repentance while my wife continues her bad habits. The ones that bother me the most are anger outbursts at the children and foul language. She is an adult person and I cannot force her to stop using bad language and saying anything about it makes her angry. I find myself often sitting outside in the garage to avoid these things and keeping my daughter occupied with me outside to keep her from bad language as much as I can. This may not sound like a big deal but it is a big deal to me. It is so hard to become more like Christ when your own household is out of controll. These days a man cannot do anything about it for fear of divorce and being separated from his children. I do not want divorce but I fear it will either be divorce and hurting the children even more or me living in fear of her anger and the children continually exposed to it. So far the only solution I have is to forgive and to continually pray that God will convict her heart of its sin. Lord knows I'm a sinner too but I'm striving everyday to correct it.
