Im a christian who has really been trying to get my life in order, read my bible daily and pray more often. Im pregnant with my 2nd daughter and am SOOO moody and irritable. My husband and i have been fighting non stop and im so stuck in this nasty rutt. I feel like im constantly asking God for forgiveness and i feel horrible, sometimes i feel God is sitting in heaven shaking his. I pray about it constantly but dont know what to do.

  • I agree with the anon. Prayer does work,and no matter how many times you go to God for the same thing, He's never gonna get tired of you. He WANTS us to bring Him our troubles, our heartaches, our miseries. He WANTS to take them,and give us His peace, grace, mercy, love, care,and forgiveness. Maybe if you have a friend from church,that you trust, you can talk to them,and get them to pray with and for you. I know that helped me tremendously when I was going through stuff from the way my dad did me. I'll be praying for you,and trusting God to show you the way. Never give up on God! He will never give up on you. God bless you!

  • Prayer, first of all. And remember, a lot of it can be chocked up to raging hormones. Go grab some chocolate and a good book (may I recommend "The Shack"?).

  • Your pregnant,,you have a right to be moody..God is suppose to be understanding..It's not like your committing a sin . Stop being so hard on yourself.

  • Hang in there, God answers prayers in His own time. Does hubby believe/pray, too? IT may help for you to get help together.

  • The other ladies are right. Chalk a lot of it up to hormones, grab some chocolate and put your feet up for a bit, and keep praying.. God knows your heart, mama. He see's you are trying your best . Dont give up, hon. Start the day with prayer.

  • We have a book that's a Bible Aid about Family Happiness (it's free too, just call your local Kingdom Hall and ask, it's also without obligation to have us ever come back) and it takes the family into their Bible and it's to help husbands and wives with understanding and being patient with one another and their children, you can also go to our on-line site and order it.
